Jason Aldean Dating American Idol Alum Brittany Kerr After Cheating Scandal (VIDEO)

Despite the claims that Brittany Kerr wasn’t responsible for the divorce of country star Jason Aldean and his wife Jessica Ussery, it looks like Brittany and Jason have actually been dating since the time the couple split. According to TMZ, the American Idol Season 11 contestant has been in a relationship with Aldean for nearly a year.

For those that don’t remember, Aldean was caught on camera kissing Brittany at a bar in West Hollywood. The “Night Train” singer admitted the indiscretion with a public apology on Facebook:

"The truth is that I screwed up,” he wrote in September 2012. “I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that's the end of the story. I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself.”

As for Brittany, the Charlotte Bobcats dancer called the incident a “lapse in judgment,” but claimed she wasn’t aware Jason was married when news of the story broke.

Mostly for the sake of their two daughters, Jason and Jessica attempted to make their 11-year marriage work. The duo first started dating in high school in 1994 and wed on August 4, 2001.

Despite their best efforts, the couple announced their separation on April 25, 2013. Four days later, Jason filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.”

If the latest stories are true, then Brittany and Jason have been quietly dating since right around the time of the filing. Though they’ve clearly tried to keep their relationship under wraps, Kerr was photographed watching Jason’s concert on Friday, March 14.
