Jason Aldean has filed for divorce, kicking last week's news of separation from his wife up a notch. "This is a really tough time for my entire family," the country singer told Us Weekly in a statement about the divorce, noting that he and Jessica Ussery had been together since they were teenagers - he's 36 now - and had had ups and downs along the way. They would have been married 12 years in August. "I've learned that everyone always rushes to judgement when they hear news like this," he told the mag .
