You Had Me at ‘Annulment’
September 17, 2005
After only four short months of marriage, squinty-eyed thespian Renee Zellweger and questionably popular country music star Kenny Chesney are calling it quits. Still reeling from the fact that the couple married after having known each other for only a few months, Media Absurdum is further flummoxed by the use of the term “fraud” in Zellweger’s petition for annulment. Here’s what the couple said in a joint statement to journalistic powerhouse Entertainment Tonight:
“Renee and Kenny value and respect each other and are saddened that their different objectives prevent the success of this marriage. They are disappointed that the legal term ‘annulment-fraud’ has been publicly misunderstood and exaggerated.”
Such a statement begs the question: Did the couple marry for love or business? A bachelor until the age of 37, Chesney may have had a bit of the ol’ “Tom Cruise syndrome.” (You know what we mean.)
