More Drama In Sara Evan's Divorce

Country singer Sara Evans is facing more drama in her divorce from husband, Craig Schelske. The 118-page document was filed Tuesday in Williamson Country chancery court as part of the divorce, according to The Tennessean newspaper, asks Sara to state under oath and penalty of perjury whether or not she admits to "an affair/sexual relationship/romantic involvement" with the following men: Kenny Chesney, Richard Marx, Tony Dovolani or any member of her band. It also seeks to find out if there was any relationship with Brad Arnold, Matt Roberts, Todd Harrell or Chris Henderson — all members of the group 3 Doors Down.

The questions are included in a document used to obtain information from opposing parties during legal proceedings. Sara has not yet responded, and the court filing provides no evidence that she had relationships with any of the named people. John Hollins Sr., Sara’s attorney, told the newspaper he could not comment because of a court-issued gag order. Craig’s attorney, who is also bound by the gag order, did not return a call seeking comment.

Sara filed for divorce the day after a blowup between the couple in a Los Angeles restaurant, after which police were called to the scene. In previous court filings, Craig alleged that he had learned of his wife's "intimate relationship" during the dinner. A hearing in the case is set for September 28 in Hickman County. Sara made her recording debut in 1997, and her 2000 album "Born to Fly" went double platinum. Her hits include "Perfect," "Suds in the Bucket" and "Real Fine Place to Start." The couple have three children together, Avery Jack Lyons Schelske, 8, Olivia Margaret Schelske, 4, and Audrey Elizabeth Schelske, 2 ½. The couple married on September 25, 1993.
