After TMZ.com posted photos this morning of Jason Aldean and Season 11 American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr in the Los Angeles bar The Den hugging and touching each other — and in one photo, appearing to kiss — the married father of two posted this statement via his Twitter page tonight:
Hey Guys – I wanted to talk to you directly, so you were hearing the truth from me and not just reading allegations made about my personal life on gossip web sites.
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.
I really appreciate being able to work through this privately with my family and for all your continued support.
