Oscar-winner Renee Zellweger has slammed reports her three month marriage to country singer Kenny Chesney is in trouble.

British newspaper the Daily Mail claimed on Saturday (30JUL05), the famous couple have barely spent any time together since their wedding in May (05).

The 36-year-old Texan actress and 37-year-old musician married on the Caribbean island of St John after a whirlwind four month courtship.

A unnamed friend of the Bridget Jones beauty alleged, "The realities of married life are hitting them both awfully hard.

"Renee had no idea how involved in every aspect of her life Kenny would want to be. She'd never even seen him lose his temper before the wedding, but now he seems to think he can tell Renee what to do, what to wear, where to go and who to see. He doesn't seem to like her hanging out with her old friends."

Zellweger's publicist NANCI RYDER has laughed off the rumours, saying their relationship is "great".

Meanwhile, Chesney's spokeswoman HOLLY GLEASON remarks, "He's focusing on what he does best: making music."
