JASON ALDEAN'S 11-year marriage to Jessica Ussery is over. The couple, who have been married for 11 years, filed for divorce last Friday. They cited the always-popular "irreconcilable differences."
Yesterday, Jason released a very wordy statement asking for privacy . . . because that's what people in the spotlight do when they'd like a pass from being in the spotlight.
Here's the statement: "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 up 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 number one priority. I've learned that everyone always rushes to judgment when they hear news like this.
"That's really hard because no one knows anything about our relationship but us.
"I understand that because of my job, I have to go through a lot of this in the public eye, but for my girls' sake I really wish people would give us some level of privacy and at the very least be respectful of them."
Jason and Jessica have two daughters, 10-year-old Keeley and 5-year-old Kendyl.
