Cooke had been engaged to Nashville construction company owner Jimmy Lowrie, who confirmed the pair split "a couple of months ago." He refused to comment on Cooke's link with Chesney. "I still get along with Naomi and her family. We just went in different directions," Lowrie said. "You'd have to ask her."

But another source told Radar Cooke's intention was clear. "Naomi left her fiancé for Kenny," the source claimed. "If Kenny hadn't entered the picture, she would still be engaged."

Insiders close to Chesney told Radar he knows Cooke, but denied any romance. "He's working on a record and his relief work for the Virgin Islands," the source spilled. "He has no time or room in his life for this." Still, Cooke's pal said the pair — seen together in California in July — were more than pals."It's hard to believe it's just a coincidence Naomi called off her engagement just after she spent time with Kenny in California," the friend noted.
