NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 30, 2013)—The romance has gone sour for Jason Aldean and his high school sweetheart Jessica.
Aldean has filed for divorce from Jessica, who has been his wife since August, 2001, citing irreconcilable differences.
There were reports recently that the couple had separated and those reports were confirmed last week by the singer’s representatives.
In a statement, Aldean said the divorce is "a really tough time" for all.
He said he and Jessica are committed to raising their two young daughters.
Aldean is country music's top-selling male act, a top concert draw and won the Academy of Country Music Music's male vocalist of the year award.
