Kristin Cavallari was tired of Jay Cutler lazing around after NFL retirement: 'She thinks she's very polished'
Reality TV star Kristin Cavallari is reportedly divorcing her husband Jay Cutler because she was tired of how "lazy" he is.
The 33-year-old had a problem with the former NFL star becoming "unmotivated" and "lazy" after retiring. Sources revealed that Kristin "views herself as very polished and put together, and [Cutler as] this lazy, unmotivated guy amid their split."
The insider added, "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. 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," according to a Page Six report.
The 'Hills' star had tied the knot with Cutler in 2013 when he had been playing with the Chicago Bears. She believed that after his retirement, Cutler was all set to take up a new career and work as a sports broadcaster. However, when this failed, Kristin started to get fed up with his attitude.
In 2018, after Cutler had played eight seasons with the Bears, he tried to pursue his broadcasting career, after which he came back out of retirement and had one season with the Dolphins which he spent injured.
The pair were then seen on a new reality TV series 'Very Cavallari' which was based on Kristin's jewelry business and their family.
So far, there have been three seasons of the show. It has been reported that Cutler has been trying to make a breakthrough in his broadcasting career and as per their reality show, has had offers from CBS and ESPN.
The couple were married for around seven years and share three children together — sons Camden, seven, and Jaxon, five, and daughter Saylor, four.
We had previously reported that there were many signs that things were not good between the two as was seen on her E! series 'Very Cavallari'. According to People, a source revealed, "He would make her cry all the time during production. He talked down to her and belittled her. She couldn't take it anymore."
"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," the source added. Kristin has cited "inappropriate marital conduct" and "irreconcilable differences" as reasons for her decision to file for a divorce.
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.
