Aldean & Wife 'Having Problems' Amid Split Reports
By Concetta DeLuco
Country crooner Jason Aldean and wife of 11 years, Jessica Ussery, have found themselves in rough waters as his rep admits that the singer's marriage is on the rocks.
"I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share with the press at this time," Aldean's rep tells People in reaction to reports that the two have already split. "It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way."
Scandal ensued last September after Aldean was caught cozying up to American Idol season 11 contestant Brittany Kerr. The Dirt Road Anthem singer released a public apology, saying, "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," he said. "I'm not perfect, and I'm sorry for disappointing you guys."
"I think we're fine. I think anytime you go through anything like that--I mean, it's tough," the singer told CBS This Morning back in November. "We've been together for a long time and through a lot of things together. Those are things that most people get to deal with in private, but we didn't have the luxury of doing that."
