Just days after announcing their split and filing for divorce, The Hills star Kristin Cavallari has alleged “inappropriate marital conduct” and “irreconcilable differences” as the reasons for her divorce from former NFL quarterback, Jay Cutler, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.
The reality star, 33, lists their date of separation as April 7, the day they returned from their family holiday in the Bahamas amid the coronavirus pandemic. Cutler, 36, listed “irreconcilable differences” as grounds for the divorce and lists their date of separation as April 21.
Cavallari also claims Cutler “is guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper,” and that: “any misconduct alleged or implied against her” in Cutler’s divorce petition “was in response to and/or as a result of misconduct on [Cutler’s] behalf”. Cutler has not alleged misconduct against Cavallari in his filing.
The Hills alum is seeking primary physical custody of their three children — sons Camden, seven, Jaxon, five, and daughter Saylor, four, with “reasonable periods of parenting time” for Cutler. Cutler is seeking joint custody of the kids.
She also requested child support and wants the former Chicago Bears quarterback to pay for their three kids’ health insurance.
The pair started dating in 2010 and tied-the-knot in 2013. Cutler became a prominent part of Cavallari’s recent reality series Very Cavallari, in which a lot of their relationship was documented.
On Sunday, April 26, the stars announced they were getting a divorce, making a joint statement on Instagram.
“With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce,” the statement read.
“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.”
A source told People that the breakup had “absolutely nothing to do” with the rumor that Cutler had an affair with Cavallari’s former best friend, Kelly Henderson. According to the source, Cavallari and Cutler simply grew apart.
“She has so much on her plate, with her brands and with the show,” the source said. “Jay is not as interested in all of that. She’s so passionate about her work and they couldn’t relate to each other as much. So it pulled them apart.”
