People & Entertainment: Country star Aldean files for divorce

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Jason Aldean has filed for divorce.

The country music star filed the complaint for divorce against his wife, Jessica, on Friday afternoon in Williamson County, Tenn., citing irreconcilable differences. The two met in high school and have been married since August 2001.

"This is a really tough time for my entire family," Aldean said in a statement Monday afternoon. "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 no. 1 priority."

Aldean's publicist confirmed last week the couple had separated. The filing comes six months after Aldean was photographed while appearing to kiss former "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr in a Los Angeles bar. Aldean and his wife met while in school in Macon, Ga., and were married long before Aldean found fame. He is country's top-selling male act.
