Reba McEntire finds love after devastating divorce
The 63-year-old singer went through a dark phase in her life when her husband of 26 years, Narvel Blackstock, asked for a divorce. But now, someone is making her happy again.
On August 3, 2015, Reba McEntire and Narvel sent shock waves through the celebrity world when they announced that they were divorcing. Their divorce was finalized on October 28, 2015.
Reba's fans have been praying for her ever since the split and now they're happy that she has found love again, as reported by Uplifting today.
The award-winning singer is now dating Anthony "Skeeter" Lasuzzo, an oil executive.
Reba brought him as her date to the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in New York City.
The couple met in 2017 while the Somebody Should Leave singer was still recovering from the breakup of her marriage.
"I see her completely at ease with him. He adores her wholeheartedly, which is what we all want, right?” Uplifting today quoted Melissa Peterman, a former co-star and friend of Reba, as saying.
Melissa added that Reba’s fame doesn't seem to faze Anthony at all.
“I don’t think it even causes a stir,” Melissa explained. “He is a confident guy. And when you’re hanging with the crazy crew that Reba has, you gotta be a good sport and be able to roll, and he totally does.”
Reba thought that she would never find love again after the divorce, which was something she didn't want to happen in the first place.
"The divorce was not my idea. I didn’t want it in any shape, form or fashion. So it was really hard to make the adjustment, when someone’s not happy," Uplifting today quoted her as saying.
Reba, who has been referred to as The Queen of Country, shot to fame with her album, My Kind of Country, in 1984. She went on to have a series of successful albums and number one singles in the 1980s and 1990s.
The singer has released 29 studio albums. She is one of the best-selling artists of all time, having sold more than 85 million records worldwide.
Her accolades include Country Music Association's Female Vocalist of the Year Award, Academy of Country Music's Top Female Vocalist Awards and American Music Awards for Favorite Country Female Artist.
