“I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems,” Jason’s rep told People. “It’s a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way.”

Jason Aldean’s Cheating Scandal With Brittany Kerr
Though Jason told People in December 2012 that “all that other stuff is kind of in the past,” it’s clear that his cheating scandal with American Idol season 11 alum, Brittany Kerr, took an irrevocable toll on Jason and Jessica.
Pictures of the country singer kissing Brittany surfaced on the internet in September 2012. “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,” Jason admitted in an official statement on September 26, 2012. But his mea culpa was too little, too late — Jason and Jessica reportedly had “obvious problems before the bar kiss,” according to Us Weekly and they were just unable to hold things together.
