Gay singer Chely Wright regrets her misguided attempt at romance with fellow country star Brad Paisley - she ended the relationship because she "could see the damage she was doing to him".
Wright 'came out' as a lesbian this week (beg03May10) and has opened up about her doomed relationship with Paisley, who duetted with her on 2000 track Hard to Be a Husband, Hard to Be a Wife.
Wright admits she kept her sexuality secret from her ex-boyfriend, and ended the romance as soon as it started to turn serious.
She tells Access Hollywood, "When I realised he was wanting forever with me... I could see the damage I was doing to him, and I cut him off completely, cold turkey."
