Dolly Parton opened up about her marriage in a rare disclosure in a new interview.
"My husband and I have been together for 57 years and married for 54, and I'm sick of him and I'm sure he's sick of me," the "Jolene" singer joked.
Parton married Dean, now 78, in 1966 when she was just 20 years old. Fans of Parton know that her spouse has kept a low profile and rarely accompanies his famous wife to public events. Parton once claimed her longtime love has only seen her perform live a few times.
"My weaknesses have always been men, sex, and food and not necessarily in that order," Parton revealed to the podcast of her life, both on and off the road.
The flirty star, whose friendship with her late duet partner Kenny Rogers was so close that there were rampant rumors that they had an affair, revealed that when she recently recorded a song with Michael Buble for her new Christmas album, she was disappointed that she couldn't get "cozy" with him due to COVID-19.
"I wanted to cuddle down and cozy up with him but I couldn't very well do that, not this year anyway. So maybe next year I'll get to do a Christmas special of the same album and maybe I'll get to cuddle up with him then."
Despite her flirty comments -- and her joke that she's "sick" of Dean -- Parton really only has eyes for her husband. She rarely shares photos of her spouse on social media, but in 2017, she posted a pic of him kissing her on the cheek in an image framed by a rose garland embellishment as she celebrated a "Month of Love" that February.
