Kenny Chesney Denies Gay Rumors

New York (AP) -- Country Singer Kenny Chesney has told the show "60 Minutes" that 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 it was the least harmful way to do the annulment.

The interview is to air this Sunday.
