Last week, we learned about the cheating scandal between country music singer, Jason Aldean and American Idol contestant, Brittany Kerr. TMZ photographed the pair in a crowded Sunset Strip bar kissing and getting a little touchy-feely after a night of partying and a bit too much to drink.
Once he knew he was busted for kissing and groping Kerr, Aldean was quick to issue a public apology saying in part, “The truth is that I screwed up. I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar.”
According to E, Aldean has since opened up even more about his infidelity and is trying to make things right. He said, “It was important to face the backlash head-on rather than wither in shame.” He explains, “You can handle it two ways: You can go hide and run from it, or you can get up and face it and deal with it. And that’s kind of what we tried to do and just kind of move on.”
So how are things at home? Aldean said he and his wife are working privately to mend and rebuild their trust. “The main thing is that me and my family are OK and everything’s good there,” he said. “So I think it’s been a tough deal. But I kind of said what I needed to say to them, and, hopefully, they understand that and the rest of it will be us dealing with it in private and trying to fix it. It’s good, though.”
It sounds like Aldean wants to hurry up and get this ugly situation behind him. He says, “It’s been a really unfortunate thing. Really embarrassing, I think, more than anything.”
What do you think of his indiscretion? Do you think his wife is letting him off the hook a little too easy? What would you do if this were your husband or wife? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
