Although Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert released a joint statement announcing their divorce, The Voice judge has remained silent on social media...until now.

Shelton turned to Twitter to break his silence, and while he doesn't have a lot to say per se, his 140 character and fewer message is packed with meaning....or is it?! "Just got off the treadmill. This calls for a drink. Bitch...," he tweeted Tuesday afternoon, and when a fan tweeted back saying she couldn't imagine him on a treadmill, Shelton quipped, "It looked like one of those messin' with Sasquatch commercials..."

On the one hand, he's keep up with his fitness. On the other, it seems he's turning to the bottle to handle all that is happening. His banner still remains Lambert's Marie Claire January 2015 cover.

Although they announced their split Monday, the couple has already hashed everything out in terms of their divorce settlement because their pre-nup was very cut and dry.

The former country power couple has already divided up their assets accordingly, with Lambert and Shelton each getting to keep one of their homes. They also split up their animals and finances. Although many might be surprised by their announcement, the couple actually has been plagued by rumors for years. Ultimately, time apart and trust issues were what led them to call it quits, a source told E! News.

"Their busy schedules were a big issue for them. They both worked a lot and had to spend a lot of time apart. The less time they spent together, the more they grew apart," our source shared. "Trust was an issue for both of them. It went along with having to spend a lot of time apart. Rumors of infidelity put stress on them. Despite denials, even just rumors of cheating are still hard to hear."

Although the "Gunpowder and Lead" songstress is busy on tour, another source told E! News that she is trying to keep her head held high and is "doing the best she can at the moment and trying to process everything."

"She is strong and will come out of this stronger," the source added. "She is focusing on her music, family and friends."

Even though Lambert is trying to get through this relatively unscathed, it seems her now ex-husband isn't doing as well. Even close pal Carson Daly seemed to be taken aback by the news, as he talked about it on the Today show Tuesday morning.

"I obviously have a close connection with Blake...Sad times," Daly said. "Yesterday what was really sad about this is the idea of love and marriage seems to be a dying art for a lot of people [because] people were so saddened by that news."
