Jason Aldean Separates From Wife Jessica Ussery
For the past seven months, Jason Aldean and his wife Jessica Ussery have been dealing with the fallout from his decision to cheat with American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr. Photographs emerged of the two locking lips at a club on the Sunset Strip, and that betrayal, coupled with all the media attention, obviously put quite a strain on the relationship. Until today, it was widely thought the couple was trying to make it work, but unfortunately, it now seems they’ve decided to take a break.
According to US Magazine, Jason and Jessica tried to give it a go for a few months, but he apparently moved out all the way back in January. Neither party has commented publically on the matter, but his rep did finally release an official statement today vaguely addressing the matter.
"I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share at this time. It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way."
Living apart obviously isn’t the greatest long-term sign for the couple’s relationship, but now and again, a relationship can be saved by putting it on hold for a little bit. With two young children and a history that dates all the way back to high school, Aldean and Ussery certainly have reasons to try and make it work. Here’s to hoping they’re able to tape into those reserves.
Regardless, Pop Blend wishes the family nothing but the best during this time of need. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
