As an American singer and record producer, Kenny Chesney has created 32 noticeable singles on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs. He did not experience great success with his first album under Capricorn Records, but it proved that Kenny would be a Country music prodigy in the near future. Once his fourth album was publicized in 1999, Kenny was well-known by the public and secured a place at the top of the charts.
Zellweger and Kenny Chesney’s marriage
Chesney is one of the best-sellers across the world. He could win Entertainer of the Year awards from the Country Music Association four times successively. When Zellweger and Kenny Chesney got married in early May 2005, a very short time later, Kenny Chesney attended The Tonight Show and admired and praised his cute wife. To most spectators, Kenny and Renee would certainly have a good future.
The beginning of the rumors
But just after a few months, Renee destroyed people’s expectations by applying for an annulment. In fact, there have been celebrities who have experienced shorter marriages, but this one was shocking for people since Renee mentioned ‘fraud’ as the reason for this application. Annulment differs from divorce since it’s an announcement that a marriage never lawfully happened. Under California law, an annulment may be agreed upon under specific circumstances. If each one of the parties is mentally ill, under 18 years, tied to a previous marriage, or if permission to marry was gained by force or fraud.
The most probable theory about the reason behind the annulment
Fans tried to propound all possible theories to expound why Renee mentioned fraud as the reason for the annulment. But one theory was more popular than others. This theory was that Kenny was covertly gay. Renee tried to squash the rumors by issuing a statement explaining that the word ‘fraud’ was just a lawful language and that it did not mirror Kenny’s character. I would be extremely thankful for your contribution in avoiding jumping to disparaging, upsetting, illogical, or wrong conclusions, and I highly value your understanding that we want to experience this transition as secretly as possible. This is what she asked from her fans. Zellweger’s statement was not that effective in stopping rumors declaring that Kenny Chesney is gay.
Different reasons for not being gay
A succeeding statement by the couple stipulating that they had different ‘goals’ when they married only worsened the rumors. In 2007, Kenny explicitly mentioned that he was not gay. He explained that he would have determined his sexual orientation previously, but he didn’t would like to make people focus on the story more. In 2009, he stated that he has a lot of girls that can prove that he is not gay.
He said that “I’m completely sure that I love girls. There are a lot of girls who could attest that I am not gay”. Kenny mentioned that he doesn’t feel contrite about marrying Renee, but he thinks he would have refrained from the gay rumors if the couple followed divorce instead of an annulment. He believed he could avoid public humiliation and mortification by getting divorced rather than annulment.
