Last week we learned that Jason Aldean and wife, Jessica Ussery had split up after nearly 12-years of marriage. Despite trying to work things out, the couple split just six-months after Aldean was caught in a cheating scandal with American Idol alum, Brittany Kerr. And now, Aldean is taking the next step toward getting on with his life. He’s officially filed for divorce. Take the jump for more details.
According to US Weekly, Aldean filed divorce papers in Tennessee on Friday, Apr. 26, the same day the split from his soon-to-be ex-wife Jessica was announced. The papers list the reason for their split as irreconcilable differences. Yes, cheating on your wife could be one of the many reasons there would be irreconcilable differences between a man and wife!
Aldean sounded off about his divorce saying it’s a very tough time for his family. “Jessica and I have been together since were teenagers. We’ve been through a lot of ups and downs over the years as we grew up together as a couple,” he said. Could there have been other instances of infidelity? We can’t be certain but either way; the most important thing to Aldean at this time is his children. He has two daughters with Ussery.
“[Jessica] will always be important to me because she is the mother of my children, and I know that we will both always make our daughters our No. 1 priority,” he said. This is a private family matter and Aldean hopes everyone will respect it as such and give the family the space and privacy they need through this difficult time especially for his daughters’ sake.
