Over the weekend, Reba McEntire, 60, announced on Facebook that her divorce to her husband and manager, Narvel Blackstock, 59, was finalized on Oct. 28. The two had been married for 26 years.
McEntire revealed her divorce in the comment section of a photo she posted of herself, Blackstock, and her management team.
“Narvel and I are divorced. It was final October 28,” she wrote. After fans sent her their well wishes, she posted, “Thanks for all of those sweet messages. Narvel and I are friends. We have always been.”
McEntire and Blackstock – who have a 25-year-old son together – announced their amicable separation in August.
In a joint statement released after the split, a rep for the couple stated: “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. They have asked that you respect their privacy during this time.”
McEntire and Blackstock married in 1989 after both had ended their previous marriages. Blackstock has three children from his first marriage, one of whom is married to singer Kelly Clarkson.
McEntire is known for her country hits such as “Somebody Should Leave” and “Can’t Even Get the Blues,” and for her TV sitcom “Reba,” which she starred in. Blackstock owns a talent management group that represents various artists, including Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton.
