Country singer Jason Aldean files for divorce

  • Country music singer Jason Aldean has filed for divorce from his wife Jessica Ussery.

    The announcement comes seven months after photographers caught the singer kissing a former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr in Los Angeles.

    Aldean, one of country music's biggest stars, cited irreconcilable differences for the divorce in court documents filed on Friday in Williamson County, Tennessee.

    "This is a really tough time for my entire family," he said in a statement on Monday. "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, 36, and Ussery, 33, married in 2001 and have two children.
