LOS ANGELES, Aug. 19 (UPI) -- Country musician Chris Young said being pulled into a scandalous rumor involving Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton was shocking and "weird."

The 30-year-old singer told Entertainment Tonight Tuesday it "sucks" to be wedged between his two friends' divorce. "It's just so weird getting pulled into something like that where it just wasn't true," he said.

In July, Young was rumored to have been the reason for the high-profile divorce because of an alleged affair with Lambert. The "I'm Comin' Over" singer vehemently denied the rumors, taking to Twitter to confront them.

"I don't normally address gossip but in this case I will," Young wrote at the time. "My name has been mentioned as a contributing factor in Blake and Miranda's divorce. That is totally FALSE. They are both my friends and I would not betray that friendship. Just wanted to clear that up. Love you guys - CY."

On the day the rumors were picked up, Young said he kept in touch with Lambert all day. "He was like, 'Dude, sorry.' I was like, 'I know man.'"
