It has not been a great summer for Miranda Lambert. First she files for divorce from husband and fellow country music star Blake Shelton, and now her email has been hacked. And, apparently, hacked by a female hacker who goes by "Brenda," which just makes the thing sound like she was betrayed by a seemingly trustworthy gal pal.

The hacker first provided juicy details to tabloids by falsely claiming she'd learned them from someone close to the divorcing couple, but when pressed by In Touch, she 'fessed up. "I hacked into her account," “Brenda” tells the tabloid. "There are more than 35,000 emails. I’ve been going through them." The tabloid insists that after learning of the crime, it has cut off all contact with "Brenda." 

The hacker says she gained access by to Lambert's account by cracking her password. It probably didn't help that the password was something along the lines of "BlakeSux123."

If it's any consolation, "Brenda" seems to be feeling some sort of remorse over the whole thing, claiming she's held back the juiciest material. "The most explosive information 'Brenda' says she obtained from hacking Miranda’s account was not published," the tabloid reports. Well, at least there's that.
