Country singer Jason Aldean has apologized for cheating on his wife with "American Idol's" Brittany Kerr. Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are struggling to rebuild their relationship after her affair.
Which cheating scandal is worse? Which relationship is in bigger trouble?
Jason apologized after photos surfaced of him making out with Brittany. From his explanation, it seems like it was a one-time indiscretion. He writes, "The truth is that I screwed up. I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that's the end of the story."
Meanwhile, we're not exactly sure how far it went between Kristen and Rupert. According to Perez Hilton, Kstew insists that she and Rupert only made out, and that they never actually had sex.
Time and Commitment
Jason and his wife have been married since 2001. Meanwhile, Kristen and Rob met on the "Twilight" set in 2008.
Based on time and commitment, there seems to be more at stake in Jason's relationship. He and his wife have been together since high school, and they now have two kids.
Jason has posted a public apology on Facebook. He writes, "I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself. I'm not perfect, and I'm sorry for disappointing you guys. I really appreciate being able to work through this privately with my family and for all your continued support."
Although he made a mistake, I have to respect the fact that he immediately took responsibility and that he didn't make excuses. I also appreciate him for not airing his dirty laundry for cheap publicity (take a hint, Arnold Schwarzenegger).
Meanwhile, Rob seems willing to move forward in relationship with Kristen--for now. As an insider reports, "Rob sees it as Kristen made a really stupid mistake. After a lot of long tearful talks, they've worked it out. Rob can see how truly sorry Kristen is and has totally forgiven her."
In both cases, the cheating seemed to be a one-time affair. It also seems like Jason and Kristen are taking responsibility.
Still, I'm a bit skeptical about Robsten, especially given the promotional work that they'll have to perform for "Breaking Dawn 2." Are they really making a sincere effort to work through this? Or are they obligated to keep up appearances in order to appease the "Twilight" franchise?
