Former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr has found her name back in the national spotlight — for all the wrong reasons. The announcement of Jason Aldean’s divorce from wife Jessica Ussery revived all the reports of the country superstar’s cheating scandal with Brittany back in the fall. The Idol alum’s mother, however, says her daughter had nothing to do with Jason Aldean and Jessica Ussery’s split.

“Brittany is not responsible for any breakup,” Debbie Kerr told RadarOnline. Any rumor to the contrary, Debbie says, is “simply not true.”

Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr were photographed last fall getting intimate and kissing at a Hollywood bar. The country singer later apologized for the cheating scandal, saying he was drunk and “screwed up.” Brittany also issued an apology over the incident for having a “lapse in judgment,” but claimed she did not know Jason was married when she met him.

According to reports at the time, Jason Aldean left the bar that night alone and no one had any evidence he and Brittany did anything more than make out. Nor is anyone claiming Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr are currently involved, at least that we’ve seen. However, the drunken hook-up between the two seem to possibly have been the catalyst behind Jason and Jessica’s eventually decision to end their marriage. Or, maybe it was just a symptom of a larger problem.

Whatever it was, Brittany’s mom wants everyone to know the Jason Aldean divorce is not her daughter’s fault. She told RadarOnline that Brittany is single, does not live in LA anymore, and “was never with that married man.”

Well, the two may not be snuggling up now, and may have never done more than kiss, but we do have the photos proving Brittany was “with that married man” at least a little bit that fateful night last fall... Even if, in the end, the real blame for the cheating scandal that may have ended his marriage lies firmly with Jason.
