This is truly a shocker…
Country superstar Reba McEntire and her husband and manager Narvel Blackstock said in a joint statement on Monday that after 26 years of marriage, they have separated.
Reba and Blackstock have one son together, 25-year-old race car driver Shelby Blackstock.
Narvel also has three other kids from previous relationships, including son Brandon Blackstock, who is married to Kelly Clarkson. McEntire’s estranged husband runs the management company that reps Reba and other high-profile names in country, including Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson.
The duo, who has worked together for 35 years, will continue to do so, the statement said. A representative declined to comment on whether a divorce was in the works.
