Country music star Jason Aldean filed for divorce from his wife of 12 years on Friday.
According to People Magazine, Aldean filed the paperwork, citing irreconcilable differences, in Williamson County.
Just a day prior, Aldean's rep told the magazine, “I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share with the press at this time. It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way.”
Aldean was photographed last fall with former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr at a Los Angles bar. In one of the photos, the pair appeared to have kissed.
Aldean and his wife, Jessica, have two daughters.
Aldean is known for his hit songs such as “Big Green Tractor” and “She's Country.”
