Yes, you have read that right! Jason Aldean is now dating former "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr, the same woman with whom he was caught cheating on his wife almost two years ago.
The two have been dating each other since the 37-years-old country singer filed for a divorce from his wife Jessica Ussery in April 2013, US Weekly reported.
In September 2012, Aldean was photographed kissing Kerr at a bar in West Hollywood. Immediately after the photo circulated in public, the Grammy-nominated recording artist took Facebook to apologize for his misdemeanor.
In a status he posted on Oct 1, 2012, he wrote: "The truth is that I screwed up. 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. I'm not perfect, and I'm sorry for disappointing you guys. I really appreciate being able to work through this privately with my family and for all your continued support."
On the other hand, Kerr, who is also a former cheerleader for the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats, deleted her Twitter account a day after the cheating scandal broke and sent a public apology to TMZ. "The actions I portrayed recently were not a representation of my true character, but a lapse in judgment on my part. I would like to sincerely apologize to everyone that has been affected by this, including my friends and family," she said in the statement.
After the scandal, his wife of almost 12 years gave him another chance to prove himself, primarily for the sake of their two daughters. Unfortunately, it did not work out the second time around. Seven months after the cheating incident, Aldean and Ussery were reported to be separated from each other, and then a divorce case was filed.
