After 26 Years of Marriage, Reba McEntire and Her Manager Husband Call it Quits
Country superstar Reba McEntire and her manager husband, Narvel Blackstock, are splitting up after 26 years of marriage.
The pair issued a joint statement via a representative on Monday: “Despite this being the end of their marriage, they continue to support each other. They have worked together for 35 years and will continue to do so.”
The statement said McEntire, 60, and Blackstock, 58, have been separated for several months but will continue to work with each other.
It was the second marriage for both.
The couple worked together and formed Starstruck Entertainment in the early 1990s.
They had one child together, Shelby Steven McEntire Blackstock, who was born in 1990. Their management company oversees artists like Kelly Clarkson, who is married to Narvel’s son, Brandon.
McEntire is a Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum artist and has scored a No. 1 record in each of the last four decades.
Her latest album, Love Somebody, was released in April and debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.
