Kenny Chesney Ain’t Gay

February 16th, 2007 // 18 Comments

Kenny Chesney was the subject of some gay rumors when Renee Zellweger cited “fraud” as one of the reasons for divorcing him. Some vicious vipers assumed it was because she found out he liked tool. The guy is the spiritual heir to Jimmy Buffet, but more concerned with people thinking he’s fruity. His priorities are so out of wack. You know there’s a concert coming up where Jimmy joins him onstage for “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and several 40-something ex-frat boys in Hawaiian t-shirts and visors quit ogling drunk college chicks in Corona bikinis long enough to spontaneously ejaculate in their khaki shorts from Eddie Bauer. Kill me now. Scratch that. Kill them now. I hate Jimmy Buffet. Though I heard the tailgating’s fun if you like underage girls to show their breasts for free Twisted Teas.

“It’s not true. Period. 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,” the 38-year-old country singer says. “… I didn’t have to prove to anybody that I wasn’t (gay). I didn’t feel like I really did.”

“We thought the least harmful (stated reason) was fraud because it (is) kind of broad … doesn’t specify,” Chesney says. “And boy … we were wrong.”

The reason for divorce should have been listed as “keeps singing about a free-wheeling sailboat, beach lifestyle and beer and it’s just too cheesy for words”.

    Look, if you wax every hair off your torso, people are gonna think you’re gay.

    Oh, and that whole “fraud seemed like the easiest basis for divorce” business is lame. If they both wanted a divorce “irreconcilable differences” is the way to go. She divorced him for cause, i.e. he’s queer.

    I thought they got an annulment, not a divorce – which is totally different and you do need a cause and fraud is the most generic, as opposed to insanity, incest, adultery etc… It’s a whole different process.

    Now I am not saying he may not be gay but why get married to a woman who lurves getting her groove on with her leading men if you are gay? There were bound to be female sexual demands at some point – which I guess is when she bailed. A question for the ages, because this guy can never come out of the closet, no matter how much fruad he ends up marrying.

    i remember seeing this dude singing on some awards show, ages before the whole renee situation, and both my husband and i were talking about how “gay” he was–to us it seemed overly obvious–he could have gone straight to a gay club after singing his song and the boys would have eaten him up!!!! my husband and i laughed and commented on how many gay dudes there really must be in country music, but of course they could never come out…. and then this dude marries renee and of course to us, the reason it didn’t work out was obvious to us.

    I have never seen this guy without a stupid hat. I think the “fraud” was based on how he looked without a hat to Renee–he must be hiding a second head under that hat.

    I have no problem with a person being gay, but I do have a problem with a gay person deceiving a straight person into marrying them. That being said, for like, ten years now I’ve thought Kenny was gay. The whole nations gaydar has pointed to gay.

    You guys are cruel.
    Kenny does not come across as gay to me and I do have a highly tweeked GAYDAR!!!

    In response to Jinxy McDeath :
    It was a annulment, and irreconcilable differences would not work in that particular legal seperation.
    Amd as for you kat said:

    Jimmy Buffet is the greatest… HE and Chesney have the sea and sand in common, They love it and it is a part of their soul!! Yeah that sounds corny, but somethings arent as fake as websites like this which are devoted to smearing gossip about other people.

    kenny said it himself,

    he’s not gay.

    did you see the 60 minutes interview?

    he didn’t even blink when he said that!

    it’s pretty obvious in his songs that he’s not gay.

    Kenny, greatest country singer to date.

    and…candy apple.

    So very mean and so childish personalities are the post here. I love Kenny Chestney’s music and humble ways in all the enterviews that he does. I have most of his records and If I would be so lucky to one day be able to attend one of his concert.

    Renee, though I love all her movies, she does not seem to stay with the same person for long and. Have had a few short relationships including Kenny. Kenny on the other hand seem to have been very smitten by the beautiful Renee, other than that have we heard of him being in a lot of relationships??? NO. He is shy and well ajusted and in no mean take anyone for granted. In a resent interview, Kenny stated that he is dating someone but that his lifestyle at the moment is not fair to any woman. He does however want to give marriage a try again and would like children someday. Make totally sense to me. He lives his life very private away from the stage. And that I respect him as an artist and a human being. A fine human being he is.
