Jason Aldean admits he "acted inappropriately" with former "American Idol" contestant Brittany Kerr at a Los Angeles nightclub last week.

The married father of two owned up to his flirtatious mistake and apologized for his indiscretion which was caught on camera. Aldean took to Twitter and Facebook to make a direct apology over the weekend. He wrote that he didn't want fans to "just read about his personal life on gossip web sites."

He says he "screwed up" and "had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar." He went on to say that he left the bar alone, caught the bus to his next show "and that's the end of the story."

Aldean says he's not perfect and he embarrassed his family and himself and appreciates being able to "work through this privately."
