Was there always this much cheating in Hollywood or are they just getting worse at hiding it?!

Kenny Chesney was seen on a romantic Mexican getaway with ESPN sportscaster Jenn Brown last week.

Only problem is he his girlfriend of two years Amy was back in Nashville and knew nothing about it!

A source says of Kenny's trip with Jenn:

"They were touching and rubbing each other the whole time. they definitely looked like lovers, like they didn't have a care in the world."

As for Amy, an insider says she's furious and that "this is like a slap in the face."

Shady, shady!

In fact, he likens the whole thing to getting a sports injury!

Over five years ago, Kenny Chesney and Renee Zellweger rushed down the aisle together, only to rush towards their divorce lawyers four months later. For Kenny, the marriage was quick, sweet and filled with lingering pain. When asked how he felt about the breakup today, he explained:

“There ain’t nothing you can do about it. Just hang on for the ride. Now I look back on it as just another way of getting knocked down on the football field.”

Ouch! Oh well, c'est la vie!

Bradley Cooper is surely waiting just around the corner for you, Kenny! You just wait and see!
