Jason Aldean files for Divorce! UPDATE: Statement from Jason!
Remember back in November when Jason Aldean was caught kissing someone who wasn't his wife?! Turns out now that Jason is putting an end to his marriage to his high school sweetheart and the mother of his two kids, Jessica Ussery!
Jason filed papers in Tennessee last Friday to end the marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. Isn't that what they all say???
TMZ.com reports that Jason Aldean filed the divorce papers on the same day his publicist announced the couple had seperated, but made no mention of divorce.
Things began to unravel for Jason when he was caught back in November lip locking with Season 11 "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr on the Sunset Strip in September while he was in L.A. for a concert.
I'm sure this divorce could get very messy and expensive for Mr. Aldean!
UPDATE: 5/1/13: Statement from Jason Aldean!
“This is a really tough time for my entire family. Jessica and I have been together since we were teenagers. We’ve been through a lot of ups and downs over the years as we grew up together as a couple,” Aldean tells People. “She 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 number one priority.”
“I’ve learned that everyone always rushes to judgement when they hear news like this. That’s really hard because no one knows anything about our relationship but us,” he explains. “I understand that because of my job, I have to go through a lot of this in the public eye, but for my girls’ sake I really wish people would give us some level of privacy and at the very least be respectful of them.”
