Singer Reba McEntire has had a full love life, unafraid to walk down the aisle more than once. But, after having her heart broken twice, the question on everyone's minds is, is Reba McEntire married?


Reba McEntire was married twice and has dated several men in her life, but her current relationship status is not widely known. Just as musicians have always done, throughout these relationships, McEntire has used all her heartbreak to make music,

But, the country artist's heart may be running out of melancholy tunes. While we can't say she has a diamond ring on her finger, her romance with boyfriend Rex Linn proves just as romantic and sturdy as any healthy marriage.

McEntire and Linn started seeing each other at the beginning of 2020. Linn also works in the entertainment industry as an actor. He is well-known for his role in "CSI: Miami" as Frank Tripp. Speaking about Linn, the vocalist said:

"Rex and I have known each other since [19]91 when we were in 'The Gambler' movie together with Kenny Rogers, and then have known each other, kept in contact... and then in 2020 when mama got sick he called me. We'd gotten to see each other before because we're both on 'Young Sheldon.'"

Continuing, she stated that from March 2020, they began talking and seeing one another until they finally decided to become a couple in the middle of the year. Since then, McEntire claims that she and her current beau have been joined at the hip.



McEntire married in 1976 to Charlie Battles, and they divorced in 1987. She also was married to a famous American television producer, manager, and entrepreneur Narvel Blackstock from 1989 to 2015. She and Blackstock had a son. At the time of their impending separation; McEntire claimed she was ultimately against the idea of divorcing, with an insider source saying:

"Narvel was her protector, her business partner, and manager, and it was really tough on her. She had no idea it was coming...She felt sorry for herself for about a month, but then she snapped out of it."

Before meeting Linn, she became romantically involved with photographer Anthony "Skeeter" Lasuzzo in 2017. But, the two went their separate ways after two years together, stating that their lifestyles were too different.



While people have wondered if McEntire was married, many are just as invested in whether Sanaa Lathan is dating someone. The summarized answer is no -- She has stated that she wants to ensure she devotes enough time to her growth as an individual before looking for a partner.

Speaking about romance in general, Lathan holds a critical view of what women are taught from a young age. She believes that the magical fantasies society sells to little girls, such as "Cinderella" or "Snow White," are unhealthy.

Lathan believes it sends the message that women need a man to feel like winners. However, she states that a woman's self-confidence should come from inside and not outside, so she prefers to put herself first.

She also pointed to the failure of relationships, especially the high divorce rate, stating that it seems like a waste of time to put so much into something that will eventually collapse. However, Lathan is not a complete cynic and still believes in love --- just with one eye open.
