Jason Aldean and wife Jessica Ussery are officially ending their 12-year marriage.
Aldean cited irreconcilable differences in court papers that were filed in Williamstown County, Tenn., on April 26, E! News confirms.
Alden released the following statement to E! News: "This is a really tough time for my entire family. Jessica and I have been together since we were teenagers. We've been through a lot of ups and downs over the years as we grew together as a couple. She will always be important to me because she is the mother of my children, and I know that we will both always make our daughters our No. 1 priority."
Both Jason and Jessica tried to make their marriage work after Aldean was caught kissing former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr last September.
At the time, Aldean issued a public apology and admitted that he "acted inappropriately."
He told his fans, "I'm not perfect, and I'm sorry for disappointing you guys."
