Jason Aldean talks cheating scandal on Robin Roberts' special: 'It is what it is'Add to Favorites | In the Spotlight With Robin Roberts: Countdown to the CMA Awards
On Robin Roberts' ABC special "In the Spotlight," Aldean addresses the scandal and his subsequent divorce -- kind of.
"Well, I mean it's one of those things where you go out and you're just hanging out and -- I think the biggest thing is obviously there were things going on in my marriage at the time where I just wasn't really happy and you go out and let your guard down a little bit. It's hard enough to deal with in private," says Aldean of the incident.
When Roberts says point-blank that a lot of people were wondering if he did cheat on his wife, Aldean says, "Well, I mean, you know, everybody's gonna have an opinion. I think probably the best thing that could've happened that night was [the paparazzi] also took the pictures of me gettin' in a cab with my buddies, so it is what it is."
"I'm really happy right now. ... No matter what happens, I can always get on stage and play and it all goes away," says Aldean. He and Ussery separated in April of this year.
