Jay Cutler would often 'belittle' Kristin Cavallari and 'made her cry in front of other people' all the time
The two were married for over seven years and were struggling for 'at least three years' before their separation announcement on Sunday, April 26
Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are getting divorced, it was revealed on Sunday, April 26.
The two were married for around seven years and were struggling for 'at least three years' before their separation announcement. There were also many signs that things were not good between the two as was seen on her E! series 'Very Cavallari'.
"He would make her cry all the time during production. He talked down to her and belittled her. She couldn't take it anymore," a source told People on Thursday, April 29. "He belittles Kristin and makes her cry in front of other people. He flies off the handle at the littlest thing and would make Kristin absolutely miserable."
Fans and followers of the reality show will also recall one specific episode last year where the ex NFL star got very drunk at a dinner party at their home and called his wife 'the breadspender'. "If Kristin wants to buy something, she buys it. If there's something that we have to pay for, "we" pay for it," he reportedly shared.
An embarrassed Kristin clapped back and said, "Okay, not like all the s*** that you go out and buy." The former couple share three children together- sons Camden, 7; Jaxon, nearly 6; and daughter Saylor, 4. The pair had got married in 2013.
The 'Laguna Beach' star cited “inappropriate marital conduct” and “irreconcilable differences” as the reasons for her divorce from Jay Cutler. She has also requested primary custody of their children in divorce papers.
The legal documents filed on behalf of Cavallari demanded Cutler pay for the children’s health insurance and other related expenses such as dental, orthodontic, and eye care. Cavallari claimed in the paperwork that the former footballer "is guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper."
Kristin had taken to social media to announce that the pair had decided to go their separate ways. In the post she had written, "With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce. We have nothing but love and respect for one another and are deeply grateful for the years shared, memories made, and the children we are so proud of."
"This is just the situation of two people growing apart. We ask everyone to respect our privacy as we navigate this difficult time within our family," the post read.
We had previously reported that Kristin believes that Cutler is trying to 'punish' her for the divorce by preventing her from buying her own home which she had been trying to do since last fall. She had claimed in court documents that Cutler was attempting to withhold some money that she had counted on to buy a home.
The pair have also accused each other of cheating and infidelity. An insider spoke to US Weekly and said, "The word around Nashville is they really just don’t like each other anymore. They would accuse each other of cheating, but nothing really solid. They are both very stubborn and bump heads a lot and neither backs down."
"Kristin and Jay always seemed annoyed with each other and they were only on the same side when it came to their kids. Their personal relationship became antagonistic and it was better for their whole family to divorce.”
