    Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr have made it official.

    A rep for the country singer confirmed the romance to E! News on Monday. The two have apparently been seeing each other since Aldean filed for divorce from his former wife, Jessica Ussery, last April after 12 years of marriage.

    Their relationship is controversial, as Kerr was caught in the middle of Aldean's very humiliating cheating scandal which occurred back in 2012 when he stepped out on his wife with the former American Idol contestant.

    And while Aldean originally issued a public apology, insisting he and his wife were "workin' through" their issues, by spring 2013, he admitted they were "having problems" and subsequently filed for divorce.

    So who's the gal who seemingly stole the "She's Country" singer's heart? Here are five things to know about Brittany Kerr:
