Jason Aldean is married and has children, but that didn't stop the country star copping off with American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr at a bar in Los Angeles recently. With incriminating pictures now all over the internet, the musician has done the only thing he really can do in the circumstances - publicly grovelled.

Addressing his fans on Facebook, Aldean issued a statement that read "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 websites." Blaming the booze, the artist continued: "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," Aldean added. "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." Aldean has been married to his high school sweetheart Jessica Ussery since 2001 and the couple have two young daughters. The statement has caused quite a reaction among his fans, with nearly 29,000 comments being left under the message.
