Kenny Chesney claims nothing about his marriage to Renee Zellweger made him happy.
The singer married ‘Bridget Jones’ Diary’ star Renee in 2005 but the couple split just four months later.
Kenny now admits he wasn’t ready to tie the knot, but says Renee is “the sweetest soul I’ve ever met”.
Describing the brief union as a “life lesson”, he added to People magazine: “There was nothing that made me happy. You can’t fall in love as hard and fast as we did and not have some residual effects.”
Kenny also admitted that though he “enjoys” being a bachelor, he would consider marriage again.
He said: “I thought I was ready once before, but I wasn’t. If I get married again, I’m going to give it 150 per cent.”
Kenny and Renee have remained good friends since the split, and have been spotted having dinner together on several occasions.
After they split, the couple had their marriage annulled, with Renee citing fraud.
She later expanded on the reason, saying: “The term is simply legal language and not a reflection of Kenny’s character. I would personally be very grateful for your support in refraining from drawing derogatory, hurtful, sensationalised or untrue conclusions.”
