Country singer Jason Aldean is speaking out about his relationship with girlfriend Brittany Kerr. US Weekly reported Sunday that Aldean is defending his relationship and letting haters know how he feels about their constant judgment of him. Aldean and Kerr began their relationship in 2012 prior to him filing for divorce from his wife, Jessica Ussery.
Aldean’s divorce from Ussery was in the spring of 2013. He had been married to her for 12 years. The divorced couple have two children together. Aldean has made it known that she will always be important to him for this reason.
Aldean and Kerr have since gone public and walked the red carpet together in April at the CMT Music Awards. On Sunday, Aldean went to his Instagram and shared a photo of them. The post was responded to with many lashing out at Aldean for his previous actions that occurred nearly two years ago.
Next post from Aldean on Instagram was a quote which said, “You know my name, not my story. You've heard what I've done, not what I've been through." He captioned the photo saying he was sick of being judged and that while he has made mistakes he is a better person because of them. Aldean went on to say he and Kerr are happy and he wouldn’t change a thing. He thanked his supporters and said “life goes on.” He finished it out with hashtags saying “old news” and “time to move on.”
People first confirmed the couple were an official item in March. The couple had been trying to keep a low profile but Kerr was spotted at one of Aldean’s concerts. This let everyone know they were an item. They look happy and most of Aldean’s fans still stand with him.
The couple’s relationship is going strong and Aldean even had her favorite dog at a Chicago concert to surprise her. This photo of the three of them is the Instagram post that triggered Aldean’s response. Aldean is currently on tour in the United States.
