Brittany Kerr Apologizes For Jason Aldean Cheating Scandal, Calls It 'Lapse In Judgment'

Brittany Kerr, NBA cheerleader and former "American Idol" hopeful, decided to issue her own apology for the Jason Aldean cheating scandal, saying that hooking up with the married country star was a "lapse in judgment."

Kerr sent an apology to TMZ, who first leaked the photos of Aldean kissing Kerr at a bar in West Hollywood.

"The actions I portrayed recently were not a representation of my true character, but a lapse in judgment on my part," she told TMZ. "I would like to sincerely apologize to everyone that has been affected by this, including my friends and family."

One day after the cheating scandal broke, Kerr deleted her Twitter account, according to E! News.

Kerr, who dances for the Charlotte Bobcats, was photographed kissing the "Big Green Tractor" country star at The Den last week. Aldean is married to Jessica Ussery, whom he wed in 2001, and has two daughters Keeley, 9, and Kendyl, 5.

Aldean posted his own apology on Facebook on Sunday saying that he "screwed up." The singer admitted that he "had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately."

Blond beauty Kerr appeared on Season 11 of "American Idol" and many thought she resembled "A.I." alum Carrie Underwood.

She did not make it to the semi-finals, but was thrilled about moving her career along.

"When I got my golden ticket I was extremely thrilled, but I still feel like I'm in a dream and I just can't believe it," Kerr said during an "American Idol" interview. "I can't even fathom that I'm going to Hollywood. I've never been to California, so that's great."
