Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are doing okay since the cheating scandal that plagued their relationship last summer, but the same can’t be said for country singer Jason Aldean.
Although it’s been months since the 1994 crooner was photographed getting cozy with American Idol alum Brittany Kerr, Jason and his wife of more than 11 years Jessica Ussery were unable to save their marriage. He filed the divorce papers on Friday.
“This is a really tough time for my entire family,” Jason says in a statement. “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. She will always be important to me because she is the mother of my children, and I know that we will always make our daughters our number one priority.”
Jessica stood by Jason initially following the scandal, and the couple have even appeared on red carpets and in joint interviews together. Although it was just confirmed last week that the duo was having issues, they’ve allegedly been having trouble dating back to January.
Best of luck to Jason, Jessica and their family during this difficult time.
