According to the Daily Mail, the husband of Dolly Parton was photographed in public for the first time in 40 years. Rumors surrounding their marriage have turned out to be baseless.
Carl Dean, who has been married to Parton for 53 years, has been described as extremely reclusive and is rarely seen. Dean has avoided being photographed and been completely absent from Parton’s social life.
A source close to the two said: “‘He barely leaves the house and doesn’t really interact with people unless he absolutely has to – the total opposite of Dolly.”
The distance between the two prompted a lot of speculation. Some even said they had an troubled marriage.
Parton came out to refute that simply saying, “We’re really proud of our marriage. It’s the first for both of us. And the last.”
In the glare of the spotlight in Hollywood relationships are strained and normal lives nearly impossible. Apparently Parton and her husband have found the key to surviving that.
