THE WHITE STRIPES star Jack White has given his former lover RENEE ZELLWEGER a shoulder to cry on, because she is reportedly panicking about her marriage to country singer Kenny Chesney.

The Bridget Jones beauty, whose husband is currently on tour, allegedly phoned the SEVEN NATION ARMY rocker in a state of distress - proving she is still closer to White than anyone else.

A pal of the star tells British newspaper the Daily Star Sunday, "Both married in haste. I think Renee's come down to earth with a bump and she's frantic worrying about what happens next.

"The fact she's phoning him shows there's still a deep, strong bond there.

"Even though she wears Kenny's ring, they're not as deep as she was with Jack."
