Kenny Chesney Denies Gay Rumors


Kenny Chesney is denying rumors he’s gay. The scuttlebutt started when Renee Zellwegger cited “fraud” as the reason for annulling their shockingly short 2005 marriage.

 “It’s not true. Period. Maybe I should have come out and said, ‘No, I’m not (gay),’ but I didn’t want to draw any more attention to it,” the country star, 38, tells 60 Minutes in an interview to air Sunday, the Associated Press reports.

“I didn’t have to prove to anybody that I wasn’t (gay). I didn’t feel like I really did,” he says.

Zellweger and Chesney were married before friends and family on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands in May 2005.

Zellweger filed the annulment papers four months later. She later issued a statement, ostensibly to quell the gay rumors floating around about her ex-husband. She claimed in the statement that her use of the word “fraud” was “simply legal language and not a reflection of Kenny’s character.”

Okay, Kenny, you might not be gay, but you sure are bald.
