Oscar-winning actress RENEE ZELLWEGER has had some hard luck in love – and her new beau Doyle Bramhall II comes with a lot of baggage!

In the latest issue of The ENQUIRER, we reveal why Renee’s bluesy rocker boyfriend could lead to more heartbreak.

The 43-year-old “Bridget Jones’s Diary” cutie annulled her blink-and-you-missed-it marriage to country superstar Kenny Chesney in 2005 and was last linked to “The Hangover” star Bradley Cooper.

Now Renee seems to have fallen for Doyle, also 43, as the two were photographed smooching at LAX on Dec. 12.

But the guitar-playing music producer has a dark secret from his past, which is why a source says, “Renee is the best thing that could have happened to Doyle.”

Oddly enough, Renee and Doyle first met when they were both students at the University of Texas at Austin but didn’t fall for each other until recently, according to the source.
