Ugh, we hate this for Reba McEntire!!
As we reported last year, another power couple bit the dust when the 60-year-old country legend and her husband of 26 years Narvel Blackstock called it quits.
Now, we’re learning that the decision to end the marriage was NOT Reba’s — in fact, she didn’t want to break up at all!
In an interview with CMT‘s Cody Alan, the beauty confessed:
“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. I just want everybody to be happy in their lives, because our lives are too short to be miserable. I just thought it was the best thing to take my marbles and go play somewhere else, is what daddy used to always say.”
The Going Out Like That singer credits God and her girlfriends for getting her through the tough split:
“The thing that got me through this change in life, is number one, God. I prayed every day to help me have the strength to move one foot in front of the other, and continue on with what I’m supposed to be doing … and then with my team … and my friends, my family, my girlfriends.”
Aw. We’re glad she has a strong support system surrounding her!

Hang in there, Reba!
