'Good friends' Zellweger and Chesney go shopping

Hollywood star Renee Zellweger and country singer Kenny Chesney appear to have put the memory of their doomed four-month marriage behind them to remain friends.

Hollywood star Renee Zellweger and country singer Kenny Chesney appear to have put the memory of their doomed four-month marriage behind them to remain friends.

The pair were spotted together recently in a sandwich shop near Nashville, Tennessee but are apparently not taking their relationship any further.

Chesney’s publicist, Holly Gleason, said: “They’re friends. The media made so much more out of everything that the public has no clarity about any of it.

“And that’s the tragedy. They’re two nice people who don’t choose to live in public.”

Zellweger, 36, and Chesney, 37, wed in a small ceremony on the Caribbean island of St John in the US Virgin Islands last May, where they were picture smiling and barefoot on the beach.

But it was to be a short-lived joy for the previously unmarried Bridget Jones star.

The union lasted only about four months and was annulled by the Los Angeles Superior Court in December.

The manager of the Steamers Sub Shop in Franklin, Bill Beyer, told Country Weekly: “They were both very nice, very cool ... They acted like people who were good friends.”
