Country singer Jason Aldean made headlines in 2012 when he was caught kissing a former “American Idol” contestant Brittany Kerr while married to his high school sweetheart, Jessica Ussery.
The 37-year-old singer filed for divorce in May 2013 and has now confirmed he is dating Kerr, who was said to be a “drunken mistake”.
Jason and Brittany are now a couple and the cheerleader has been spotted at many of his shows the past few months and backstage.
Aldean and Kerr were caught on camera making out at the Hollywood bar The Den in 2012, shown kissing and holding hands.
The country singer explained the indiscretion to his fans on Twitter, claiming he had too much to drink.
At that time he tweeted, “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.’
And he insisted that he ‘left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that’s the end of the story.”
Brittany Kerr claimed she suffered a lapse in judgement. She also stated that she didn’t know he was married. Umm…sure!
Jason and his wife Jessica tried to work on their marriage, but he filed for divorce in May 2013. Their divorce has not been finalized.
There have been rumors that Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr were still hooking up after she was spotted in social media photos backstage at his concerts.
Aldean’s reps today confirmed the news that he is dating Kerr, following his split from his wife (and of course before).
