Jason Aldean‘s first marriage to Jessica Ussery imploded after Aldean admitted to acting inappropriately with former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr. The pair were caught on-camera getting flirty at a bar on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood. After the embarrassing news broke, the country music standout filed for divorce from Jessica on April 26, 2013 citing irreconcilable differences after 11 years of marriage.
Prior to meeting Aldean, Kerr auditioned for American Idol’s eleventh season in 2012. Obviously Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson were smitten with the beautiful former NBA dancer before she even hit her notes. Not surprisingly, Kerr’s American Idol debut crashed a couple of websites as viewers searched for more images of the curvy blonde.
Despite a “No” vote from Jennifer Lopez, the future Mrs. Aldean advanced to the Hollywood round only to be knocked out before the contestants started performing in front of a live audience. Of the 301 hopefuls who made it to Hollywood, only 98 singers advanced beyond that point.
