Reba McEntire & Narvel Blackstock Split After 26 Years Of Marriage
On the heels of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton announcing their divorce after four years of marriage, another country music power couple has decided to follow suit. The legendary Reba McEntire and Narvel Blackstock, her husband of 26 years, have announced their split.
“Despite this being the end of their marriage, they continue to support each other,” a statement from the couple on Reba.com reads. “They have worked together for 35 years and will continue to do so. They have asked that you respect their privacy during this time.”
According to the Associated Press and TMZ, 60-year-old Reba and 58-year-old Narvel have already been separated for months but a representative for the label wouldn’t confirm if the couple was filing for divorce or not.
Besides working together professionally, the “Fancy” singer and the manager/producer share one son, race car driver Shelby Blackstock. In addition to Shelby, Narvel is father to three other children including Shawna, Chassidy, and Brandon (who is married to American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson).
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Reba and her family during this difficult time.
