And according to the source, it’s been made worse by Aiken’s political aspirations.

“Since Clay is running to become a member of Congress, he hasn’t been able to spend as much time with Parker as he has in the past,” the source said. “Jaymes is the primary caregiver to their son, and she truly is an amazing mother, very hands on. It’s very frustrating for Jaymes because Clay will complain he doesn’t get to spend enough time with Parker, and when he is granted that time, it’s not good enough.”

“Jaymes feels that she can’t do anything to make Clay happy, and now it’s impacting their son,” the source continued. “Clay and Jaymes used to be very , very good friends. She pays him a lot of money in child support each month.”

Foster had served as executive producer of Aiken’s last three albums for RCA, which didn’t create a lot of buzz.

The source said, “It will be very interesting to see if Aiken is able to defeat incumbent Representative Renee Elmers, and makes North Carolina his home. How often will he be able to see Parker between working in Washington D.C., and going back to North Carolina to meet with constituents?”
