Jason Aldean‘s first marriage to high school sweetheart and the mother of his two young daughters, Jessica Ussery, hit the skids after Aldean admitted to acting inappropriately with former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr. The country music standout filed for divorce on April 26, 2013 citing irreconcilable differences after 11 years of marriage.
