Following a four-month marriage to Renee Zellweger, ex-husband Kenny Chesney opens up about what really went wrong in the couple’s short-lived union.
“I panicked,” Kenny revealed Friday on Oprah, claiming that he “felt that the idea of marriage made me lose my identity… I just don’t know that I’ve found anybody bigger than that.”
The 42-year-old country singer spoke to the talk show host about keeping his valued possessions like his friends and musical dreams in a sacred, “box,” and that his marriage to the Chicago star was not included.
“Well, it was out.. out of the box!” Kenny explained of Renee.
But, despite an unhealthy union between the two, the “When the Sun Goes Down” singer still referred to his ex-wife as a, “sweet soul.”
The couple had their marriage annulled in 2005, citing fraud as the reason for divorce according to the Huffington Post.
Renee is currently linked to fellow actor Bradley Cooper.
