The Tennessee native country music singer, Kenny Chesney, is highly associated with long-standing gay rumors. In 2005, he was flourishing in the headlines when his ex-wife, actress Renee Zellweger, accused him of fraud while seeking an annulment in their four-month-old marriage.
Since the annulment of his marriage, social media users have been boasting about the sexuality and attractiveness of the American singer. Many people alleged that he was gay, but he did not pay any heed to them. Instead, he focused on his career and did not have a personal life.
Online users were more excited to know that Kenny Chesney was gay than to hear about the upcoming songs he was working on. Although he slammed out all the rumors when he revealed his sexuality in an interview.
How Did The Rumors Begin?
The rumors started to erupt after he was forced to annul his marriage to Renee Zellweger. The Judy actress obtained an annulment from their four-month-old marriage, which received widespread criticism.
According to the books, an annulment is obtained if either party in the marriage committed any fraud or fabricated any personal information in order to get married.
She labeled Kenny as a “fraud” and people became greatly interested in knowing about what kind of fraud he was involved in. Many thought at the time that mentioning fraud by means of Renee was referring to his sexuality, and that he was gay.
Speculation and rumors about his sexuality spiked among citizens, and many truly believed that Kenny Chesney was gay.
His sexuality became the focus of the media’s attention, provocatively complicating the picture of a respected and upstanding citizen. Despite the boiling questions and accusations about his sexuality, he was not even slightly bothered by them.
However, his ex-wife, Rene clarified that he only meant the “fraud” in the legal sense, that the marriage was a scam, and that he was referring to the “scam” in the sexuality sense. However, it was too late for any clarification or damage control because the name Kenny Chesney was already humiliated and degraded by the public.
What Did He Say About His Sexuality?

In 2007, Kenny revealed in an interview about his sexuality. Kenny was asked directly whether he was homosexual regarding the claims rounding up on the internet. At first, he made it clear that he was never bothered by those rumors. Then he responded to the question.
“It’s not true. Period. Maybe I should have come out and said, ‘No, I’m not,’ but I didn’t want to draw any more courtesy to it. I didn’t have to prove to anyone that I wasn’t gay. I didn’t texture as I did.”
