Back last week when word hit that Jason Aldean and his wife of 12 years, Jessica Ussery, had been separated since January, there were understandably a few people who didn't want to believe it, especially since it was Us Magazine that broke the news.
Unfortunately, fans will now have to face the sad fact that Jason and his wife have indeed called it quits because there are now court documents to back up the news.
TMZ has obtained divorce papers that Jason filed in Tennessee on April 26, citing the usual "irreconcilable differences." The papers were filed on the same day that Jason's rep had announced that the couple was "having problems."
"I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share at this time. It's a private family matter, and we hope everyone will respect that he would like to keep it that way."
The couple has two young daughters so hopefully things can stay as calm as possible for their sake.
