Kenny Chesney may sing about “all the pretty girls” but there is only one woman who left an unforgettable mark in his life. The country superstar met an Oscar-winning actress Renee Zellweger at NBC's Concert of Hope tsunami telethon back in 2005.

Since then, the two were spotted together on numerous occasions. Zellweger even attended one of her beau’s concerts to support him.

Their romance was whirlwind and short, just like their marriage. The couple wedded only a few months after their first meeting but their union didn’t even last half a year.

The biggest mistake

Zellweger and Chesney married in June 2005 but only 4 months later the Bridget Jones star filed for divorce. Nobody knows what happened between the two but Renee cited “fraud” as the reason for their split.

A year later, the actress commented on her ill-fated marriage for the very first time, saying:

There was no alternative but to let it go. I made the biggest personal mistake of my life. I felt a fool.

She explained that she wanted to give acting a rest for some time and “be a girl” so marriage seemed like the perfect solution. The Oscar winner stated:

I was going through huge life changes at the time. I wanted to stop and be a girl for a while. My marriage came during this time and it was desperately important to me. I don't want anyone to think I didn't take it seriously.

Sadly, Zellweger didn’t give any hints regarding to the real reason why she and Chesney didn’t mean to be. The “fraud” still remains a mystery. However, some say that the country crooner played for the other team, preferring Rons instead of Renees, if you get what we mean.

Chesney strongly denied the rumors about his sexuality, saying that the only “fraud” that was committed is the fact the he thought he knew what it was like to be married but in reality, he didn’t.

Nonetheless, so many years have passed since then but neither Zellweger nor Chesney has ever remarried. Perhaps their first experience of the marital life put them off it forever or they just never met the right people…who knows.
