When you achieve the level of fame that Kenny Chesney has, people will talk about you, make assumptions about you, and spread rumours about your private life.
The American country music artist has so far released 20 albums, all of which have received at least a Gold certification from the RIAA, and more than 40 singles that have made it into the Top 10 of their respective charts.
On the other hand, it would appear that most of the reports on the Tennessee native, who is 52 years old, are primarily centred on his sexual orientation.
Is Kenny Chesney Gay?
In an episode of 60 Minutes from the year 2007, Kenny made up his mind to set the record straight once and for all.
When asked about the rumour that he is gay, Kenny gave a straightforward response, which was as follows: Kenny’s response was short and to the point: “It’s not true. Period.
Perhaps I should have been more forthcoming and stated, “No, I’m not gay,” but I didn’t because I didn’t want to bring any additional attention to the situation.
No one required me to provide evidence that I was not a homosexual. I didn’t feel like I did.”
You now have all the information you need. Kenny Chesney has stated on multiple occasions that he is straight, and he is the only person whose word we are willing to take regarding his sexual orientation (which, admittedly, is none of our business in the first place).
But the real question is: why did Kenny feel the need to elaborate in the first place?
The Country Singer’s Alleged Homosexuality First Surfaced in Rumours in 2005.
On May 9, 2005, in the US Virgin Islands, actress Renée Zellweger and Kenny exchanged vows.
Their relationship developed swiftly considering that they had just recently met in January of the same year at a disaster relief event.
But just as swiftly as it had begun, their bond came to an end.
Four months after the wedding, they said they would call it quits on their romance.
The annulment took effect in December.
Renée Zellweger opened up about her split from ex-husband Kenny Chesney in a brand-new interview with The Advocate that was published on September 8.
Zellweger married the country music icon in May 2005. She requested an annulment four months after they split up, citing “fraud” as the reason.
The incident sparked allegations that Chesney was gay. The 47-year-old Bridget Jones’s Baby actress said that she had been insulted when asked about the allegations by The Advocate.
“I didn’t notice that. It’s kind of important to overlook that, isn’t it? That saddened me,” she told the media.
I found it terrible that some people were using that as an excuse to be mean and disparage someone for being LGBT, which has fatal effects.
Of course, the more important question is why someone felt the need to make up a story in the first place.
The word “fraud” was made very plain by Zellweger in a statement she issued after obtaining the annulment in September 2005, stating that it was “just legalese and not a reflection of Kenny’s character.”
She told The Advocate when asked if she thought she needed to defend Chesney at the time, “I’d spoken all I needed to say on that matter.”
I believe it is improper to hang your laundry out on the lawn since I am a traditionalist.
I think you diminish yourself as a person when you reveal personal information to a great number of jeering strangers.
I don’t see any respect in that, to put it simply.

Accepting something for what it is, especially when it is unwelcome ugliness, can be difficult at times.
When you’ve made your point, shouldn’t that be sufficient? And why is it that people find the media’s portrayal of ugliness so alluring?
At the time of their split, the ex-couple jointly issued a statement in which they laid the blame for it on a “miscommunication of the objective of their marriage.” Chesney has since defended his stance.
