Have you ever heard about Kenny Chesney? He is a famous country music singer and songwriter, but what about his personal life?

The country superstar may sing about “all the pretty girls” but there is only one famous lady who left him heartbroken. The musician met an Oscar-winning actress Renee Zellweger at NBC's Concert of Hope tsunami telethon back in 2005 and it was the beginning of their spectacular but short-lived love story.

Since that concert, the sweethearts were inseparable. The famous couple was spotted together on numerous occasions: Renee even attended Kenny's concerts to support him.

Unfortunately, their love story was whirlwind and short, just like their marriage. The duo wedded only several months after their first meeting and their marriage didn’t even last half a year.

Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney's marriage

Zellweger and Chesney tied the knot in June 2005 in an intimate ceremony in the Virgin Islands. Just several months later the actress filed for divorce. We didn't know why it happened and who was to blame but Renee mentioned “fraud” as the driving factor for their split. However, we still don't know what she meant.

When the actress commented on her failed marriage for the very first time, she said:

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

Bridget Jones actress recalled that she wanted to give acting a rest for some time and “be a girl” that's why marriage seemed like the ideal solution. The Oscar winner added:

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.

Renee didn’t reveal the real reason why she and Chesney decided to split. Their breakup still remains a mystery.

Chesney also didn't say a lot about their love story. He explained that the only “fraud” that was committed was the fact he thought he knew what it was like to be married but in reality, he didn’t.

Their love story was brief: they met in January 2005, married in May, and split in September. After just several months, Zellweger filed for an annulment.

While the couple never really opened up about their time together, neither Zellweger nor Chesney has ever remarried. Maybe they haven't met the right people yet. Do you agree? Share your thoughts in comments.
