Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr have been together for a while now, but the two can’t seem to shake the criticism regarding how their relationship got started. After the country singer posted a photo on Instagram that got people buzzing, he added another post defending himself. What’s the buzz about?
As many remember, Jason Aldean found himself in a lot of hot water when he was photographed canoodling with former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr in 2012 while he was still married to Jessica Ussery. Jason and Jessica split up in 2013, and he has officially been dating Brittany for some time now.
On Sunday Aldean posted a picture on Instagram that showed him with Kerr and Manny the Frenchie. He wrote, “A little surprise for my girl @brittanykerr tonight. Her favorite pooch @manny_the_frenchie came to my show in Chi-Town tonite. #loveubaby #surprise.”
The photo was quickly liked by thousands of Aldean’s followers, but the shot garnered plenty of criticism as well. As many point out, Jason and Jessica were together long before he became famous, and it was part of what many fans loved about him. At the same time, many Instagram followers were quick to jump to the singer’s defense.
After things blew up on the initial post, Jason Aldean added another post and opened up quite a bit. The photo he posted says, “You know my name, not my story. You’ve heard what I’ve done, not what I’ve been through.” Aldean added that is is sick of people judging him, and Brittany, “over things they know nothing about.” He says he has made mistakes, and he is a better person for it.
Aldean goes on to say that he is happier than he has ever been, and he thanks those who support them. Jason ends by saying it is “time to move on people,” and he added the hashtags “#oldnews” and #timetomoveon.” This post also garnered thousands of likes in a very short period of time. While there were still some negative comments, there were many positive ones.
Though there may be many critical of the relationship, it certainly looks like Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr are very happy together. The former American Idol contestant posts many photos of them together on her Instagram as well. She recently put up a photo of them along with a caption that said, “Everyone has someone in their life who makes them look forward to another day.”
There are plenty of other successful singers whose current relationships started on shaky ground just like the one between Jason and Brittany, so eventually things should die down. It does seem as if the singer has more supportive fans than critical followers, but clearly this last round of negatively pushed him to a point where he felt he needed to speak up. Do you think Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr will last?
