Growing up in Southern California in the age of Laguna Beach and The Hills, I was so happy to see Kristin Cavallari finally find her match with Jay Cutler. It was a beacon of hope to see such a strong female in a successful marriage. Despite their differences, they found a way to make it work and they seemed genuinely supportive of each other. They were the couple I would point to as an example of a happy marriage.
So I am taking it hard to hear that they are divorcing after ten years together and three children. I loved getting to know Jay and seeing their relationship on Very Cavallari. He has a dry sense of humor and an amazing ability to embrace the joy of doing nothing. He seems to enjoy staying home with the kids and does not mind taking a back seat to his successful wife. Jay appeared to be a perfect balance to Kristin’s drive and dedication to her business. It was proof to me that there are supportive men out there, and that a strong woman like Kristin can still find her happily ever after. Now, it turns out they are not a happy, successful couple after all. And although the divorce started amicably enough, there are new details emerging every day that suggests the relationship is much uglier than it appeared.
According to E! News, a source close to Kristin now says that she believes Jay is trying to “hide” some of his money from her. Apparently, the couple has the same financial team, but Kristin believes they are partial to Jay. The source states, “Jay and Kristin have shared the same business managers for years, but the managers are long-time friends of Jay’s which is proving problematic in the divorce, obviously. Part of the problem is that Kristin believes Jay is trying to hide certain assets from her.”
In court documents obtained by E! News, Kristin mentions that Jay has possession of a private email between her and her financial advisors. Kristin says Jay only could have gotten ahold of it in one of two ways: Their financial manager either “provided the email to Husband without Wife’s knowledge or consent,” or Jay “hacked into Wife’s password-protected email account.” In the case of the latter, the email would be inadmissible in court.
If Kristin‘s financial team is leaking info to Jay, I hope she replaces them real quick. Or at least changes her passwords Clearly, Kristin needs a place to live if they are getting divorced. This comes on the heels of Kristin claiming Jay blocked her from being able to purchase a house for her and their children. Kristin says that this is Jay’s way of punishing her for not agreeing to his parenting plan in the divorce. She also says that it is not surprising for him to act this way. Kristin claims that this action is “typical of Husband’s behavior towards Wife” and that he frequently tries to belittle her.
Jay filed his own response to Kristin‘s statements. He asks to have them struck from the record. Jay states that her allegations are “immaterial, impertinent and scandalous matters that are alleged against Husband with no basis in fact or law.” He also submitted the email from the financial manager, who claims Kristin “left out” advice warning her to not move ahead with her purchase. So how did he actually get the email though???

At this point, Kristin‘s legal representatives say that she now wishes to move out. They stated, “Wife fears that if the parties are required to remain in the same residence, it would be an unhealthy environment, causing irreparable harm to their minor children.”
Well, duh. They need to be away from each other. Clearly, the marriage is not the rosy picture portrayed on TV, and maybe it never was. There is clearly more to it than just two people growing apart. Jay’s actions show a clearly antagonistic attitude. He is trying to make things difficult for Kristin just for the sake of making them difficult. It just shows such a lack of respect. He needs to remember that they do have three beautiful children.

There is always the chance they could still get back together. This is not the first time they have broken up. Kristin even called off their wedding before they reconciled and eventually married. Now it would seem that she was right to be hesitant in the first place. If there is any chance for Jay and Kristin to even be friends in the future, they need to find a way to keep it civil. I hope they are able to put a stop to the public mud-slinging before it gets any worse. And I still hope to see Kristin get her happily ever after.
TELL US- ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT KRISTIN AND JAY ARE GETTING DIVORCED? DID YOU SEE IT COMING? DO YOU THINK JAY IS TRYING TO PUNISH KRISTIN BY WITHHOLDING FUNDS? ARE YOU GLAD TO SEE KRISTIN MOVING ON? DO YOU THINK THERE IS ANY CHANCE THEY WILL GET BACK TOGETHER?
