Jason Aldean says people need to get over cheating scandal
Jason Aldean is totally over the fact that he cheated on his wife and is now dating his mistress, and he thinks everyone else should be over it, too.
The "When She Says Baby" singer took to Instagram over the weekend to declare his happiness about his relationship with girlfriend, Brittany Kerr, and ask that their union no longer be judged. Aldean posted a quote that says, "You know my name, not my story. You've heard what I've done, but not what I've been through." The post is accompanied by a caption that reads, "So sick of people judging me and @brittanylkerr over things they know nothing about. I have made mistakes but I am a better person because of it, and I wouldn't change a thing. I am happier than I've ever been, so thank u to all the people who support us. We are happy and life goes on. Its time to move on people. #aldeanarmy #oldnews #timetomoveon."
Aldean and Kerr, who is a former American Idol finalist, were first caught together in October 2012, when Aldean was very much still married. The pair was caught kissing by TMZ cameras in a Hollywood bar, leading Aldean to apologize to his fans on Twitter. "The truth is I screwed up," he tweeted around the time of the kiss. "I had to (sic) 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. I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself."
Then, in April 2013, Aldean and his wife, Jessica Ussery, who is also his childhood sweetheart, announced their separation after 11 years and two children together. This past March, reports began to surface that Aldean and Kerr have in fact been a couple since he had filed for divorce. The two also raised eyebrows when they walked the red carpet at the 2014 CMT Music Awards as a couple in June, prompting many to say that the public appearance was insensitive and too soon.
The budding relationship has also come under scrutiny by those close to Aldean: His two daughters reportedly want nothing to do with Kerr, because they still view the songstress as "the other woman."
