Remember when married country star Jason Aldean made out with a former American Idol contestant last fall? Well, apparently Aldean's wife couldn't forget it either. A source confirms to Us Weekly that the singer and wife Jessica have separated following the cheating incident.
The source said the split occurred in the beginning of the year. "There were obvious problems before the bar kiss, but he finally left earlier this year," the insider said.
The separation supposedly came not long after the couple attended the People's Choice Awards together in early January. Jessica did not attend the ACM Awards with her husband earlier this month.
The separation has not been confirmed, but Aldean's rep did say something's up. "I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share at this time," the rep said. "It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way."
The Aldeans had been together since high school and were married for 11 years before this all went down. They have two young daughters, Keely and Kendyl. Weeks after the scandal surfaced, the couple presented a united front. "Our lives got turned upside down, and it's been a learning process," the singer said at the time. "When there's kids involved, that's something you've always got to try and protect."
