Kenny Chesney was only married to Renee Zellweger for just a few months before they split, and according to the country star, married life was not something he could “commit” to – especially considering his purported active social life.
“I have friends who have a normal family, kids and a dog, and I think I would blow my brains out,” Kenny Chesney told Playboy in their March issue. But I’m such a free spirit, I feel more alive when I’ve got somewhere to go.
I can stay on my boat for a few weeks if I have a guitar and a girl and a Bob Marley CD.
After that, I’ve got to move around.” Kenny and Renee annulled their 2005 marriage just four months after they wed in the Virgin Islands. I think people need to live their lives the way they want to, but I’m pretty confident in the fact that I love girls.
“I didn’t have any clue as to what true marriage meant. Whatever.’” But the “fraud” decision has plagued the singer with speculation about his sexuality. ‘Because Renee cited fraud, Kenny’s got to be gay.’ What guy who loves girls wouldn’t be angry about that s***? I’ve got a long line of girls who could testify that I am not gay.” According to the country singer, his “long line” would wrap around the block. I can’t believe I’m actually saying this on the record: That was probably back in 2001.
I was so used to committing to one thing—music—and then I had to totally commit to a second thing, marriage,” he of his short-lived marriage. It was a scary moment for me.” When it came to the decision to cite “fraud” in their annulment, Kenny explained that it was due to a legal technicality. In order for us to get an annulment, the legal papers could claim either physical abuse, which wasn’t true, or three or four other things that also weren’t true,” he said. I had a good time in college, I really did,” Kenny claimed. We would party on the bus after every show.” But when asked if he believes country music fans would support an out and proud gay country singer, he wasn’t as confident.
“My first five years on the road were intense because I was the guy in college who never got laid until I started playing guitar,” he continued.
“There were years when I had a better summer than A-Rod, buddy.
