-- LOS ANGELES (February 18, 2007) — Kenny Chesney says he wants to get married again and would like to have kids.
In an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” the country superstar says he’s not gay despite rumors sparked by his marriage annulment from actress Renee Zellweger.
Chesney said he didn’t deny the rumors earlier because he didn’t feel it was necessary.
Zellweger and Chesney were married in May 2005. Four months later, Zellweger listed “fraud” as the reason she was seeking an annulment.
Chesney said they thought that was the least harmful word to use. But he admits “they were wrong.” He’s says he loved Zellweger and that “it was real.”
Chesney is taking his “Flip Flop Summer 2007 Tour” to NFL stadiums this year. The tour kicks off at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field on June ninth. Billboard Boxscore says Chesney grossed nearly $66 million in 2006, ranking him second to Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s tour.
Zellweger won an Oscar for the movie “Cold Mountain” in 2003.
