Are Kristin Cavallari and Jeff Dye in an open relationship? Long-distance love to flirty Valentine's Day chat
The 'Laguna Beach' star is smitten with a J this Valentine's Day, but it's not Jay Cutler
Just a day after alleged rumors of Alex Rodriguez cheating on Jennifer Lopez created a buzz online, Kristin Cavallari decided to work out to the singer's song 'Let's Get Loud', which some have now called a massive shade at Madison LeCroy. But shading the 'Southern Charm' star hasn't been the only thing on Cavallari's itinerary as her Instagram also drops a whopping detail about a special 'J' in her life, whom she would like to skip the chocolates for since the big V-Day is coming up.
Hopeless romantics might assume it's about her ex Jay Cutler, but there's a new J in her life since October 2020, comedian Jeff Dye and here's all you need to know about their 'no label' romance.
Are Kristin and Jeff Dye in a relationship?
Dye, 38, and the Uncommon James owner, 34, have been linked with each other since the end of 2020 and the two have been packing on the PDA ever since. However, their relationship yet to be defined. Based on Us Weekly's insiders, “She’s just hanging out with him. They’re enjoying each other’s company [and] having fun. That’s it. They’re really just getting to know one another and seeing where things go. … If they do decide to one day become official, people will know for sure.”
Labels out of the way, there's also the issue of long distance that the yet to be official couple have to tackle. While Dye lives in Los Angeles, Cavallari is based in Nashville. Noting how the two aren't making things super intense, the source told the outlet: "If she goes to L.A., she’ll meet up with him,” the source adds. “But right now, there are no labels. … They’re not exclusively dating and aren’t boyfriend [and] girlfriend.”
But that hasn't stopped the back-and-forth on social media. Just two months after they were first linked together, the pair traveled to Mexico for a PDA-filled vacation. And even though they are yet to take the next step, chemistry runs raw and intense between them, assure insiders. “Kristin and Jeff’s relationship is super hot and fiery right now,” the insider said at the time. “They’re very into each other and Jeff is so obsessed with her. … [Jeff] thinks he’s so lucky to be spending time with her. He loves that she owns who she is and admires her success.”
Kristin's Valentine's Day flirting
It looks like a reunion might be on the cards and it could be either with Cavallari's new flame or even the ex one. Earlier this week, the 'Laguna Beach' star shared with her Instagram followers a glimpse of her Valentine's Day plans through a story that read: "Dear J, You can skip the chocolate this year. I want tequila, a beach and [the] Secret Rose candle at Uncommon James. … PS. T minus 12 days. You’ve got this.”
The hint of a pattern made several social media users believe this was about her now ex and retired NFL player Cutler, whom she split with in April 2020 after seven years of marriage and three children. But their hopes were shattered when Dye played along with a list of his own itinerary and confirmed that the note was really for him. “Dear K, You can skip the distance this year. I want drinks, dancing and you from Uncommon James,” the Washington native teased on his Instagram Story on February 2, signing off with “XOXO, Jeffy.”
Reunion with Jay Cutler
The reason Cavallari's Valentine's Day plans got fans' hopes up about Cutler was the very cozy photo she shared of the two of them back in January - sparking rumors of a reconciliation. But sources have confirmed to Us Weekly that "there are no talks of Jay and Kristin getting back together." Their current focus is on their kids, whom they are sharing in a joint custody, with 182.7 days to each parent. “Kristin and Jay have remained friends. They will always have each other’s back no matter what,” the insider added. “Coparenting has been going well — they are doing the best they can.”
