Jason Aldean and Jessica Ussery have separated according to Us Weekly Magazine. The separation comes seven months after Aldean was photographed making out with American Idol alum, Brittany Kerr.
"I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share at this time," his rep told the magazine. "It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way."
According to sources the couple had issues even before the scandal with Kerr.
"There were obvious problems before the bar kiss, but he finally left earlier this year," the source said.
Aldean and Ussery have two daughters and have been married 11 years.
"It hasn't always been roses," Aldean said. "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. Any couple that's been married for 30, 40, 50 years faces make-or-break moments.”
