The former American Idol contestant caught kissing married country star Jason Aldean has deleted her Twitter.com account after receiving a slew of abuse in the wake of the scandal.

Snaps of the My Kinda Party hitmaker apparently smooching singer Brittany Kerr at a bar on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles appeared on the web over the weekend (29-30Sep12).

Aldean admitted he had "acted inappropriately" and apologised for embarrassing his family, which includes his wife of 11 years, Jessica Ussery, and their two daughters.

After the snaps of the Aldean and Kerr smooching emerged, the former Idol star has faced a backlash from the country star's fans online, and decided to shut down her Twitter page on Monday (01Oct12).
