Over So Soon??

Wow ... more breaking news ... Renée Zellweger & Kenny Chesney Split:

Four months after their beachside wedding, Renée Zellweger and country singer Kenny Chesney are having their marriage annulled, PEOPLE has learned.

The couple were married May 9 in a sunset ceremony on St. John in the Virgin Islands before 35 close family and friends. It was the first marriage for both.

No further details about the couple's split were available.

The couple met at the Jan. 15 Concert of Hope tsunami relief benefit, where Chesney sang and Zellweger took phone pledges.

The pair had a whirlwind romance. On April 29, just a few weeks before their wedding, the Cold Mountain Oscar winner surprised Chesney in Jacksonville, Fla. – bringing him a margarita onstage for his song "When the Sun Goes Down" (a tradition at his shows) and kissing him on the cheek. It was the first public hint of a romance between the two.

One of Chesney's biggest hits is a song called "You Had Me From Hello," a takeoff on the famous line "You had me at hello" from Zellweger's breakout 1996 movie role opposite Tom Cruise, Jerry Maguire.

Oh well ... at least now Kenny is free to marry any man he likes ... as long as he does it in Massachusetts.
