Miranda Lambert and her husband, Brendan McLoughlin seem to have a very happy marriage. But an unnamed source claimed that this isn’t necessarily the case.

In its Dec. 6 issue, National Enquirer claimed that McLoughlin, who used to work as a police officer and a security staff at one of Lambert’s concerts, doesn’t enjoy being in the limelight.

But since he’s married to a country superstar, McLoughlin has no choice but to live a very public life.

A source claimed that Lambert is so used to having her husband with her all the time that’s why McLoughlin has also become a public figure.

“She’s gotten used to having him around 24/7 at her beck and call. He’s feeling crowded, not to mention embarrassed by those shirtless pictures. Mutual friends think she should be warned to give Brendan some room and not treat him like a Vegas show guy. It’s kind of degrading. No wonder he’s missing the force and the male camaraderie and talking about returning to policing even if it’s in Nashville,” the source said.

However, the source stresses that Lambert won’t likely allow her husband to return to his quiet life in Nashville because she needs to take control of their marriage.

“Miranda wouldn’t like that one bit because she’s used to calling the shots. And this is an issue that’s bound to get worse unless she starts treating him with more respect,” the source said.

Last week, another tabloid claimed that Lambert and McLoughlin are having problems in their marriage. The latter is allegedly humiliated because his wife asked him to go shirtless during one of their outings.

And there was also another instance wherein Lambert treated McLoughlin as though he’s her employee and not her husband.

As of late, it’s unclear where all the rumors regarding Lambert and McLoughlin’s marriage are coming from. But they seem baseless. After all, the tabloid was unable to provide concrete evidence that McLoughlin has been feeling henpecked for a while.

Since he’s not a celebrity, McLoughlin has not been interviewed about his marriage. And he has not also opened up about his struggles being married to a country superstar.

It seems that the tabloid is just making up lies about the couple even when there’s really no issue between them. In fact, the tabloid even published a loved-up photo of Lambert and McLoughlin that contradicted their claims.
