Zellweger and Chesney Officially Single Again

22 December 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney's annulment was finalized by Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday. Despite a recent string of secret dinners fuelling speculation over a possible reunion, the couple are now officially separated. The announcement comes a week after Zellweger and Chesney asked for a private judge to oversee the matter. Sources insist the couple's split is amicable, despite Zellweger initially citing fraud as her reason for wishing to dissolve her marriage to the country star. The pair were married for just 128 days before Cold Mountain star Zellweger filed papers in September. Meanwhile, as well as dining with Chesney, Zellweger has found another newly-single actress to count on for a little moral support - the Oscar winner has been spotted enjoying lunch dates with Sideways star Sandra Oh, who recently split from writer/director Alexander Payne. »

Zellweger Slams Chesney Reunion Reports

21 December 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oscar-winner Renee Zellweger has slammed reports she is dating estranged husband Kenny Chesney again, insisting any times they have met recently were to discuss divorce proceedings. The Chicago star, 36, and country singer, 37, split in September, just four months after their whirlwind Caribbean wedding. Zellweger subsequently filed for divorce, citing "fraud" as the reason for the split. Last week, reports suggested the couple were reuniting after they were spotted dining together. However the actress' representative insists the pair remain on friendly terms and were just discussing details of their divorce. Her publicist tells the New York Post, "She and Kenny are not getting back together and they are not dating. For any couple who change the state of their relationship, there are loose ends to tie up and discussions to be had." »

Chesney Was Too Busy for Marriage

21 September 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Country star Kenny Chesney believes he had "too much" on his hands to make his marriage to Renee Zellweger a success. Last week, the couple shocked fans when they announced they were seeking to annul their marriage just four months after exchanging nuptials in the Caribbean. And Chesney admits he struggled to balance his personal life with his hugely successful career. He tells Country Weekly, "I'm all right. I'm good. There have been better times, but I'll be okay. I hit everything so hard this year. I had the biggest tour I've ever done, I had a record to finish that was real important to me, and, of course, I had something new in my personal life and I was trying to do that too. It really ended up being too much. I'm tired right now, but by next year, I'll be excited to get back to it. And it'll be about the music again, not about the sideshow." In court papers, Zellweger listed "fraud" as the reason for the break-up. »

Zellweger Seeks To Explain "Fraud" Listing

19 September 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Renee Zellweger has jumped to the defense of her estranged husband Kenny Chesney, after intense media speculation over her citing of "fraud" as the reason for their marital meltdown. In court papers filed on Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the Chicago beauty filed for an annulment from country star Chesney after just four months of marriage, citing "fraud" as the reason for the breakup. But Zellweger has now issued a statement insisting, "(The term is) simply legal language and not a refection of Kenny's character. I would personally be very grateful for your support in refraining from drawing derogatory, hurtful, sensationalized or untrue conclusions. We hope to experience this transition as privately as possible." Zellweger, 36, and Chesney, 37, wed in a small surprise May ceremony on the Caribbean island of St John in the Virgin Islands. It was the first marriage for both. They met at the Concert of Hope tsunami relief benefit on January 15, where Chesney was singing and Zellweger was answering telephones. »

Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney Split

16 September 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney have split - just four months after marrying in the Caribbean. The couple shocked fans when they announced that they'd wed on May 9 in a sunset ceremony on St. John in the Virgin Islands before 35 close family and friends. It was the first marriage for both. No further details about the couple's split have been made available, but People magazine reports that they're having their marriage annulled. Unfortunately for Zellweger, fellow Texan Dr. Phil McGraw's summer prediction that her marriage to Chesney would last just four months has been proven right. At the time, she hit back, "To come home from getting married and have that guy setting the betting table in Vegas at three months or four months or whatever it was... I'm not so worried about what Dr. Phil thinks." The couple met at the January 15 Concert of Hope tsunami relief benefit, where Chesney sang and Zellweger took phone pledges. The first public display of their romance occurred on April 29, just a few weeks before their wedding, when Cold Mountain star Zellweger surprised Chesney in Jacksonville, Florida - bringing him a margarita onstage for his song "When The Sun Goes Down" and kissing him on the cheek. One of Chesney's biggest hits is a song called "You Had Me From Hello," a takeoff on the famous line from Zellweger's breakout 1996 movie role opposite Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire. »

Readers Vote on Hilton and Latsis's Chances

31 August 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Paris Hilton's marriage to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis is facing doubts before it even begins, with a magazine poll finding them the most likely new celebrity couple to get divorced. Latsis proposed to the blonde hotel heiress earlier this summer, and the couple later flew out to Greece to hunt out an ideal wedding venue. And while they've yet to announce a date for their nuptials, readers of Blender magazine aren't too optimistic about their future together. When the publication asked which couple will end up in a divorce court first, a whopping 69 percent voted for Hilton and Latsis. As one reader notes, "You can't turn a ho into a housewife." The tally placed them well ahead of Pete Doherty and Kate Moss, who picked up 19 per cent of the vote. And former couple Renee Zellweger and Jack White's new marriages have also made the list. Eight percent believe White's romance with Karen Elson will end in divorce, while four percent predict a doomed future for Zellweger and Kenny Chesney. »

Zellweger Slams Wedding Rift Rumours

2 August 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oscar-winner Renee Zellweger has slammed reports her three month marriage to country singer Kenny Chesney is in trouble. British newspaper the Daily Mail claimed on Saturday, the famous couple have barely spent any time together since their wedding in May. The 36-year-old Texan actress and 37-year-old musician married on the Caribbean island of St. John after a whirlwind four month courtship. A unnamed friend of the Bridget Jones beauty alleged, "The realities of married life are hitting them both awfully hard. Renee had no idea how involved in every aspect of her life Kenny would want to be. She'd never even seen him lose his temper before the wedding, but now he seems to think he can tell Renee what to do, what to wear, where to go and who to see. He doesn't seem to like her hanging out with her old friends." Zellweger's publicist Nanci Ryder has laughed off the rumors, saying their relationship is "great." Meanwhile, Chesney's spokeswoman Holly Gleason remarks, "He's focusing on what he does best: making music." »
