On April 24, Kristin Cavallari filed her own divorce papers three days after her ex Jay Cutler did and cited their date of separation as April 7. So much has been said about their split via anonymous sources and unsurfaced videos, but Kristin just broke her silence and opened up about it for the first time.
During an Instagram Live, Kristin suggested that she actually hasn’t returned to her family home in Nashville since she and Jay returned from the Bahamas on April 7. She told her stylist, “[My best friend Justin Anderson and I] have been together for the entire quarantine time—literally from day one.” That “we” definitely includes her three kids, Camden, Jaxon, and Saylor too. But being quarantined with three children and getting a divorce in a middle of a pandemic obviously has its own challenges. She said, “We’ve maxed out every creative idea” adding, “I will tell you, the no school thing is tough. With the boys, Jaxon will not listen to me. He refuses to do work.” Kristin went on to say she doesn’t have the energy to fight with them about doing their schoolwork (fair) and that “everyone’s going a little stir-crazy because we really can‘t go anywhere.” As for her personal routine, her 5 a.m. workouts went out the window a long time ago. “I haven’t set an alarm since all of this has been going on,” the Uncommon James founder said. “It’s going to be really hard for me to get back into it.” Literally same…minus the ever waking up at 5 a.m. to exercise bit.
She also never used to let her kids sleep in her bed with her, but she’s been “rotating” them for the past week. “It’s cute, but those are the moments that will never be the same—we’ll never get those back. So in that sense, I’ve been trying to really enjoy that time with my kids,” she explained.
Unfortunately for the curious fans hoping she’d talk about her divorce more directly than her current living situation, Kristin didn’t. Considering recent reports accused Jay of being “rude,” “distant,” and a “jerk,” during their marriage, it’s understandable why she didn’t even go there.
Kristin Cavallari is divorcing Jay Cutler in part because she was sick of the former NFL star lying around the house, Page Six is told.
The “Hills” star married Cutler in 2013 when he was a quarterback with the Chicago Bears, and we’re told she thought he was lined up for a demanding career as a sports broadcaster after he hung up his cleats.
But sources say that after his broadcasting career faltered, the ever-ambitious Cavallari, who announced in late April that the pair were splitting, found him “unmotivated” and even “lazy” — while he found that he had a penchant for hanging out with their three kids and menagerie of animals on their Tennessee farm.
“She was growing increasingly impatient with him. He was supposed to take this big job at Fox Sports and have a life after football that would get him up off the couch and do something,” said an insider. “Instead, he backed out — this is [three] years ago — and joined the [Miami] Dolphins. That didn’t pan out well, and he was left with no TV gig until she got the show for them.”
In 2017, after eight seasons with the Bears, Cutler retired to pursue a broadcasting career, then came out of retirement and spent one injury-marred season with the Dolphins.
The couple moved on to star in the E! reality series “Very Cavallari,” which follows her jewelry business and their family and has so far aired for three seasons.
The source added that Cavallari “views herself as very polished and put together, and [Cutler as] this lazy, unmotivated guy.”
Cutler has lately been mulling another attempt at a broadcasting career, and — according to their reality show — has had offers from CBS and ESPN.
When she announced the breakup, Cavallari wrote on Instagram, “With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce.” She said it’s “just the situation of two people growing apart.”
Details of Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler’s joint custody agreement have been revealed in new court docs filed on May 4. It even stipulates how they should speak about each other in front of their kids.
Kristin Cavallari, 33, and Jay Cutler, 37, have agreed to split custody of their three children — Saylor James, 4, Camden Jack, 7, and Jaxon Wyatt, 5 — 50/50, as part of their ongoing divorce battle, according to docs filed in a Tennessee court on May 4 and obtained by HollywoodLife. The court docs detail that both Jay and Kristin are prohibited from “speaking badly” about one another or “the members of the family of the other parent” while in front of the children. The former couple are also encouraged to ensure that their children “love the other parent” and are “comfortable in both families.”
“The Mother and Father will behave with each other and each child so as to provide a loving, stable, consistent and nurturing relationship with the children even though they are divorced,” the court document states. “They will not speak badly of each other or the members of the family of the other parent. They will encourage each child to continue to love the other parent and be comfortable in both families.”
Holidays are to be split evenly, although Jay will have the kids for Father’s Day and Kristin will have the kids for Mother’s Day. When it comes to Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day, both Jay and Kristin will switch between odd and even years and follow guidelines per school releases and reconvening. The 50/50 split comes as a surprise in the former couple’s ongoing divorce proceedings. In her April 24 counter-complaint to Jay’s April 21 divorce filing, Kristin initially sought to be the “primary residential parent” after denying that her husband was always the “available at home parent and primary caretaker” of their three young kids.
