AceShowbiz - Reba McEntire has announced that she splits from boyfriend Anthony "Skeeter" Lasuzzo after two years of of being together. The 64-year-old country music icon confirms the heartbreaking news during an interview when she reveals that they won't spend the holidays together.
"Skeeter and I broke up in May, so, unfortunately, we will not be spending that time together," Reba told Us Weekly on Wednesday, October 30, when speaking about her new movie "Spies in Disguise". However, Reba shared there's no bad blood between them. "We still talk and we're friends, but just decided to go our separate ways," she added.
Reba and Skeeter first met in 2017 when she was on vacation in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She got to know the retired oil geologist through their mutual friend, Brooks & Dunn singer Kix Brooks. "Kix and Barbara Brooks thought it'd be a good idea, since we were gonna be up around Yellowstone, to get Kix's best friend's wife's brother to show us around. He's a photographer in Jackson Hole," the "Consider Me Gone" singer explained to Taste of Country back in 2018.
"I made another trip to Jackson Hole, because I just love it up there, and he asked me out for a date -- just the two of us. And we've been dating ever since," she said.
Reba also said that they enjoyed doing several activities together. "We love the mountains. Everything that we have encountered … We love going to plays in New York," she continued. "He was in the oil and gas business, so being from Oklahoma, I was very familiar with that. As a matter of fact, my very first job, other than singing, was checking records with an oil lease company! It's so funny."
Prior to dating Skeeter, Reba was married to Narvel Blackstock for 26 years. The pair separated in August 2015.
