Seven months after admitting to fans that he "acted inappropriately
" with former "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr, country superstar Jason Aldean and his wife, Jessica Ussery, have separated, according to Us Weekly
A source reveals to the publication that the couple has been apart since January. "There were obvious problems before the bar kiss, but he finally left earlier this year," the source alleges, noting that Jessica did not attend the ACM Awards with her husband earlier this month.
"I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share at this time," a rep for the singer tells Us Weekly. "It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way."
