On September 26, 2012, Jason Aldean was photographed at the Los Angeles bar The Den hugging and kissing American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr. Aldean was married at the time and had two children. The photographs were published by the gossip website TMZ.
Days later, the singer of "I Break Everything I Touch" apologized for his actions.
"Hey Guys – I wanted to talk to you directly, so you were hearing the truth from me," he wrote on Twitter. "The truth is that I screwed up. I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that's the end of the story. I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself. I'm not perfect, and I'm sorry for disappointing you guys."
