Renee Zellweger, Kenny Chesney Fraud: She Wanted a Baby?

Sep 18, 2005

Once Renee Zellweger claimed her four-month marriage to singer Kenny Chesney was a "fraud" rumors began to fly. The Oscar-winning actress tried to slow them down and claimed the term was "simply legal language and not a reflection of Kenny's character," in a statement on Friday.

"I would personally be very grateful for your support in refraining from drawing derogatory, hurtful, sensationalized or untrue conclusions," she said.

Fat chance.

The UK Daily Mail carries this report on Sunday:

Renee Zellweger split from her husband of just four months because she wanted to start a family and he did not, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Sources close to the 36-year-old Bridget Jones star say she was longing for a baby but country singer Kenny Chesney, 37, wanted to wait.

A source close to Renee said last night: "Her biological clock is ticking loudly. She is desperate to have children. Renee's understanding was that Kenny wanted a family too. It was Kenny who got cold feet."

The Mail quotes a spokesperson, "The miscommunication of the objective of their marriage at the start is the only reason for this annulment."

That's not a very strong denial. Easy speculation could be that she wanted an immediate baby and he did not. Wouldn't that qualify for a "miscommunication of the objective of their marriage?"

A stronger denial will be needed from Renee's camp or this will grow.
