Kenny Chesney is Not Gay

by at . Comments

Hey, Oprah Winfrey, you aren't the only one out there who isn't gay.

Country star Kenny Chesney is also speaking out about his sexuality - and he's on the side of heterosexuals. Just in case you weren't sure.

In an interview with 60 Minutes, Chesney denied rumors that have been circulating since his four-month marriage to Renee Zellweger ended in September 2005.

Zellweger later filed for an annulment and cited "fraud" as the reason for the split, leading some to speculate that Chesney's sexual orientation was in question.

"It's not true," Chesney said.

"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 … I didn't have to prove to anybody that I wasn't (gay) … I didn't feel like I really did."

Now that he has, though, another man is off the market for Neil Patrick Harris.

Chesney went on to explain that the couple chose the term "fraud" in the its paperwork because it was the most ambiguous terminology avaiable, and that Chesney and Zellweger were hoping to protect their privacy.

"We thought the least harmful was fraud 'cause it's kind of broad, whatever it is. Doesn't specify. And, boy, didn't, we were wrong. But, it's okay. The only fraud that was committed was me thinking that I knew what it was like. That I really understood what it was like to be married, and I really didn't."

Chesney went on to say he didn't regret the marriage. He did, however, think he was tying the knot with Ellen Pompeo.

Well to all of you that REALLY think kenny is gay trust ne he IS NOT we was married last year in Vegas and are private people Its really bad when you have to live in a fish bowl at least we can go some without the media they don't know of me yet.but he does love his fans and he loves me too so I do share when he is performing and when he is writing and on tour so come on don't say things like that.It really is tough being a star you can't run down the road to a Burger King or Grocery Store, or even a Walmart.you all the time being watched. just sit sometime and think about how much freedom that you have and he gives up for the love of his fans. so please stop the kenny bashing ....Mrs, C Chesney

Anyone who doesn't believe that he's gay should follow him arouod one of his many, many trips to the Ocala and Gainesville, Florida, area when he's not touring. In fact, he was just there last week. It doesn't effect me either way, but it is what it is.

renee is just jealous becuase she know that kenny could do way better than her. She is the weridest looking famous person out there. I cant believe that kenny actually liked her. Im glad they got a divorce cause that gives kenny a chance to find someone who actually loves him and will be with him forever. I got your back kenny i know 100% that you could never be gay ♥ brnadie
