Clarkson declared divorce from McEntires former stepson, with whom she shares 2 kids, in June 2020 after nearly 7 years of marriage. The previous couple were married in 2013, two years before McEntires own split.
Speaking with Extra, the nation star provided a diplomatic reaction when asked if she was offering Clarkson guidance in the middle of her marital separation..
” You understand, I enjoy them both,” McEntire said. “Brandons my stepson, Kellys my excellent pal … I am pulling for both of them.
That echoes similar remarks made in a different interview with Entertainment Tonight, in which she stated, “I ca t play favorites” over the split..
” Ive been a pal of Kelly for a long time,” she said. “Brandons been my son forever, it appears like.

And this May, the recently single Clarkson sang a cover of McEntires “How Blue” on her eponymous talk show..
” Ive been a fan of Reba since I was a little woman,” Clarkson informed her viewers. “Her voice has actually always felt classic for me. Even as an adult, theres something about her tone and her storytelling that simply feels like house.
” Sometimes when we fulfill our heroes, it does not always pan out how you hope. However meeting Reba– being friends with her, and ultimately ending up being household– has actually been one of the highlights of my life, truly,” she continued. “So thank you so much for listening to me vent as an artist. Thank you a lot for soothing me on the phone through my tears, like a good friend. And thank you for being a truly rad grandmother for my kids.”.
McEntire likewise addressed her own love life in her interview with Extra, musing on the possibility of one day weding her boyfriend, star Rex Linn..
” Weve talked about it and laughed about it,” she shared. “We thought, Man if we ever had a ceremony, we would need to have a 2 oclock, 4 oclock, 6 oclock and an 8 oclock cause we have a lot of pals, acquaintances and family.”.
