Reba McEntire And Narvel Blackstock Separate After 26 Years Of Marriage
Reba McEntire and her husband Narvel Blackstock announced on Monday they are separating after 26 years of marriage. In a joint statement, the two noted that they have been living separately for the past several months. It is unclear whether they have (or will even) file for divorce.
“Despite this being the end of their marriage, they continue to support each other,” reads the couple’s statement, adding, “They have asked that you respect their privacy during this time.” The official comment from their rep makes clear, however, that McEntire and Blackstock, who also serves as her manager, will continue to work together. McEntire and Blackstock have been in a business relationship for the past 35 years.
McEntire and Blackstock have one child together, 25-year-old race car driver Shelby Blackstock. The music manger and businessman also has three other children from a previous relationship, including son Brandon Blackstock who is married to Kelly Clarkson.
McEntire has not publicly commented on her split from Blackstock, but did take to Twitter just hours before the announcement to promote a new single she’s dropping later this week. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates on McEntire and Blackstock’s breakup.
