Jason Aldean filed divorce papers late last week in Williamson County, Tennessee.
The papers cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split from Jessica Ussery,his wife of 12-years. The filing comes after word last week that the high school sweethearts were separating.
Last year, when Jason was photographed kissing an American Idol contestant after a gig, he issued a public apology, and it appeared that he and Jessica were working out their problems. But suspicions began to surface when he showed up at the recent ACM Awards alone.
Brad Paisley:“George Jones’s life is an example of so many wonderful things. How someone’s God-given gifts can make this a richer, better place. How one human being can overcome adversity, addiction and life-threatening obstacles time and time again. That it is not the stumble or fall that counts, but the willingness to stand again. How a keen sense of humor and a twinkle in a person’s eye can still prevail even after all of life’s hard knocks. How mistakes, missteps and bad choices are not the end of the world if a person chooses to turn them into something good. And George’s life is, above all, the strongest example of how the love of a great woman can get a man through anything. All of this made its way beautifully into every note of the greatest voice country music will ever know. And one of the greatest friends you could ever have. We miss you already, George."
