Reba McEntire, Boyfriend Skeeter Lasuzzo Have Broken Up After 2 Years Together
Reba McEntire and her boyfriend, Anthony "Skeeter" Lasuzzo, have broken up after two years of dating.
McEntire, 64, confirmed the news to Us Weekly in an interview promoting her new film, Spies In Disguise. When asked about her plans for the holidays, she confirmed she will not be spending them with Lasuzzo.
"Skeeter and I broke up in May, so, unfortunately, we will not be spending that time together," she explains. "We still talk and we’re friends, but just decided to go our separate ways."
The couple made their relationship known when they stepped out together at the 2018 Grammy Awards, after five months of dating privately. The pair met in August of 2017 while McEntire was vacationing with friends in Jackson Hole, Wy.
"Kix and Barbara Brooks thought it'd be a good idea, since we were gonna be up around Yellowstone, to get Kix's best friend's wife's brother to show us around. He's a photographer in Jackson Hole," the country star told Taste of Country last year.
Lasuzzo is a retired geologist who lived in the Jackson Hole area part-time. He was the group's tour guide during their vacation — they saw native wildlife, fished together and went out to dinner. But it wasn't until her second trip that he made a move with McEntire.
"I made another trip to Jackson Hole, because I just love it up there, and he asked me out for a date — just the two of us," she said at the time.
At the time of the start of their relationship in 2017, McEntire had been separated from her ex-husband, Navel Blackstock, for two years. The couple was married for 26 years before they divorced.
