Last October we learned that Jason Aldean was caught kissing American Idol alum, Brittany Kerr. Shortly thereafter, Aldean opened up and tried to make things right with his wife Jessica. And while they stayed together for six-months following the cheating scandal, they have now decided to split and are calling it quits on their 11-year marriage. Keep reading for more details.
Aldean was photographed by TMZ kissing and groping Kerr in a crowded Sunset Strip bar last October. Following the incident, he was embarrassed and attributed his infidelity to too much partying and drinking. But his main concern was his family; he wanted to patch things up with his wife and make sure everything was okay at home.
Now, six-months later, Aldean and wife Jessica have split. Did they call it quits on their 11-year marriage because of the incident with Kerr? We can’t be certain, but according to E! News, the incident with Kerr wasn’t the only trouble in Aldean and Ussery’s marriage. They’ve both admitted their marriage “hasn’t always been roses.” But whose marriage is? Every marriage has its ups and downs, right? Nonetheless, they think it’s best if they just call the whole thing off and move on with their lives separately.
“Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share with the press at this time,” a representative for Aldean said Thursday. “It’s a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way.”
What do you think about Aldean and Ussery’s split? Were you shocked to hear they had called it quits? Do you think they split over the incident with Kerr? Or was it a culmination of things? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear it so sound off in the comments and let us know.
