Rene Zellweger is out promoting her new movie Bridget Jones’ Baby and in doing so she’s been asked all kinds of questions including some about ex-husband Kenny Chesney.
Renee and Kenny had a quick marriage back in 2005 and ultimately annulled it four months later. She cited “fraud” as the reason for their annulment, which quickly had tabloids wondering why. The rumors then started that the fraud was because Kenny Chesney was gay.
When she was recently asked about it she said, “I forgot about that. It’s a pretty big thing to forget, isn’t it? That makes me sad. It made me sad that somehow people were using that as a way to be cruel and calling someone gay as a pejorative, which has fateful consequences. Of course, there’s a bigger-picture problem of why anyone had to make up a story at all.”
