Zellweger-Chesney Marriage: Just Kidding

The viability of the marriage of inflatable actress Renee Zellweger, 36, to country music star Kenny Chesney, 37, seemed somewhat improbable, with the couple tying the knot on a Virgin Islands beach in May, having met at the Concert of Hope tsunami relief benefit in January where Chesney — named Country Music Association entertainer of the year in November, with hits including “Me and You,” “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” — was singing and Zellweger was answering telephones.

But stranger things have happened.

However, just four months later, Zellweger — who won a best supporting actress Oscar for Cold Mountain in 2004 and was also nominated for her roles in Chicago and Bridget Jones’s Diary — has filed court papers seeking an annulment of the marriage, listing “fraud” as the reason for the split.

Annulment on the grounds of fraud involves proving a partner misrepresented some matter that was vital to the marriage, such as concealment of an existing spouse, permanent impotence or a criminal history, or if either party was under the influence of drugs or alcohol when the marriage took place.

Court documents and Zellweger’s representative did not characterize the nature of the marital fraud.
