The 36 year-old lodged papers with Williamson County Court in Tennessee, giving irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, People Magazine reports.
The announcement came just one day after Aldean’s representative told the magazine:
“I can confirm that Jason and his wife are having problems, but there is nothing more to share with the press 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 were high school sweethearts and marred in 2001. They have two children together – Keeley and Kendyl, aged ten and five.
Last year, Aldean apologised to fans on Twitter after being photographed with American Idol reality TV star Brittany Kerr. The singer admitted he had “acted inappropriately at a bar”.
