Reba McEntire dating CSI Miami Rex Linn

Country music star Reba McEntire announced to her fans this week that she has found love again five years after her difficult divorce, and that her budding romance is with a man whose face you just might recognize from the popular CSI television franchise!

Reba McEntire Reveals She’s Found With ‘CSI: Miami’ Star Rex Linn

65-year-old Reba McEntire revealed that she is dating 63 year-old actor Rex Linn, who has appeared in shows like “CSI: Miami,” “Better Call Saul,” and “Young Sheldon.”

On the newest episode of her podcast Living & Learning, McEntire explained that she and Linn had been dating since January.

And the “Reba” star assured her fans that he is “a very, very sweetheart of a guy.”

“We’ve been talking during the pandemic. We had dinner with Rex in January,”said McEntire, referring to herself and her co-host Melissa Peterman. “February on, it was the COVID pandemic and we were talking, texting, FaceTiming. And that’s a really good way to get to know people.”

“It’s good to have a person to talk to, laugh with, get into subjects about what’s going on. Discussions about our past, our family, funny stories, him being an actor, me being an actress,” the 65 year-old singer continued. 

“He’s very into my music. I’m very into his career. It’s just great getting to talk to somebody who I find very interesting, very funny, very smart and is interested in me, too.”

Why She Keeps Her Private Life Private

This revelation came as a surprise to many, given the fact that McEntire is known for preferring to keep her private life private.

However, she’s been having so much fun with Linn that she just had to let her fans know about her new relationship. 

“I think it’s very important to be selective about when you want to talk about your private life. He’s very special and since we’re having a dating segment for the podcast, I think it’s very appropriate for me to talk about Rex,” McEntire added.

“We’re having a blast and still getting to know each other. I put myself in his shoes and I said, ‘If he was doing this podcast [about dating] and he didn’t mention me, I would be crushed.'”

“Whatever happens in the future, at this point we’re very stable and it’s been a good six months and I look forward to having more things to look forward to,” she said.

Reba McEntire’s Devastating Divorce

Fans are especially happy for McEntire, given how rough her love life has been in the past.

The “Fancy” singer was married to her former manager Narvel Blackstock for 26 years before they divorced in 2015.

What’s worse, her ex-husband has since moved on with a woman who was McEntire’s close friend.

At the time they split, McEntire let her fans know that the divorce had not wanted to divorce Blackstock.

“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,” McEntire said.

“When someone’s not happy, I just want everybody to be happy in their lives because our lives are too short to be miserable, so I just thought it was the best thing to take my marbles, go play somewhere else.”

We couldn’t be more happy that Reba McEntire managed to find love again! If anyone deserves this, it’s her.
