Country superstar Reba McEntire would just like you to know that divorcing husband/manager Narvel Blackstock was not what she wanted — it was all his idea.

“The divorce was not my idea. I didn’t want it in any shape, form or fashion,” said Reba. “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.”

Reba shared a 26-year-long relationship with Narvel, which officially came to an end when their divorce was finalized on Oct. 28. As The National ENQUIRER reported, Reba, 60, had announced her split from Narvel, 59, in August.

“I just thought it was the best thing to take my marbles and go play somewhere else — [that’s] what Daddy used to always say,” the two-time Grammy winner explained.

That “somewhere else” proved to be in the bosom of her loved ones.

“You just got to have a great team of people around you that you love, and they love you, and I’m very blessed to have those people,” Reba noted. “I thank God for it all.”
