During a new episode of her weekly podcast, Living & Learning With Reba McEntire, Reba revealed she has a new boyfriend, actor Rex Linn.
“Yeah, yeah, I am [dating],” said Reba to guest co-host Melissa Peterman. “A very, very sweetheart of a guy, Rex Linn. And we’ve been talking during the pandemic. We had dinner with Rex, was it in January? . . . And then February on it was the COVID pandemic and we were talking, texting, FaceTime. 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. And 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.”
Reba’s 26-year marriage to Narvel Blackstock ended in October 2015. Reba dated Anthony “Skeeter” Lasuzzo for about two years before breaking up in May 2019.
Rex Linn, 63, is a well-known character actor who has co-starred in a number of TV shows and movies, including Cliffhanger, Rush Hour, Wyatt Earp, Tin Cup, CSI Miami and more.
