Fame has its perks, but privacy isn’t one of them. Jason Aldean apologized for cheating with “American Idol” singer trying to prevent tabloids from making the affair scandal worse.
This Sunday, TMZ got its hands on photos of Jason Aldean kissing a woman who wasn’t his wife. The country crooner was seen kissing with Brittany Kerr, the “American Idol” singer in Las Vegas. TMZ had the photos to prove it. Soon enough, Jason Aldean issued a public apology to his wife and friends trying to put a stop to the cheating scandal before everything surges out of control.
Jason Aldean and Jessica Ussery got married in 2001. They were high school sweethearts and they managed to keep their love going. Together they are parents to two daughters, Keeley 9 and Kendyl 5 and everything seemed to be just fine, until TMZ published pictures of Jason Aldean kissing Brittany Kerr, that is.
Trying to contain the damages and avoid escalating the cheating scandal, Jason Aldean issued an official apology via his Facebook page on Sunday. “I wanted to talk to you directly, so you were hearing the truth from me and not just reading allegations made about my personal life on gossip websites” Jason Aldean’s Facebook message reads.
“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. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show, and that’s the end of the story” the 35-year-old country star writes. “I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself. I’m not perfect, and I’m sorry for disappointing you guys” Jason Aldean told his family.
“I really appreciate being able to work through this privately with my family and for all your continued support” the country star told his fans. And based on the messages left on Jason Aldean’s Facebook wall, it’s safe to say his fans had mixed feelings about him cheating on his wife.
Some have pledged their support through better and worse, while others announced they’ve already sold their tickets to his upcoming concert. “And I thought, hey, for once a great man and great artist…just sold my tickets to your concert in San Antonio” one user wrote on Jason Aldean’s Facebook Wall after reading his apology.
