Kerr has also issued a mea culpa, saying, "The actions I portrayed recently were not a representation of my true character, but a lapse in judgment on my part," reports

"I would like to sincerely apologize to everyone that has been affected by this, including my friends & family," she went on to say.

Aldean, 35, and Kerr were photographed last Wednesday night at The Den in West Hollywood, and the shots appeared over the weekend on the Internet.
