Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are trying to get through their divorce together!
As we reported, the Laguna Beach alum and the former NFL star announced their plans to divorce after 10 years together earlier this month. Although their joint public statement appeared to be cordial enough, it was said that things between them were tense behind the scenes, with K.Cav reportedly “blindsided” by the ex-athlete’s sudden filing.
Well, tensions or not, the exes are now apparently putting aside their differences so they can resolve their divorce in a civil manner.
An insider told E! News:
“As far as the divorce is concerned, she and Jay are starting to work through things more amicably. They are working on valuing everything out right now. The home assets are the easy part.”
The not-so-easy part? Figuring out how to factor in the Uncommon James retail stores the reality star opened up pre-pandemic.
The source explained:
“The issue is that she had opened brick and mortar Uncommon James stores before the pandemic hit, so it is really unclear what will happen with them and how to calculate that into the assets, so that will hold the divorce being finalized for some time… She has one in Nashville and one opened in Chicago in late 2019. They are also working through Jay’s NFL pension and retirement as well. The pandemic really threw a wrench in getting this done expediently, it will likely be months and months before the divorce is finally resolved.”
The insider went on to explain why Kristin decided to pull the plug on her reality show Very Cavallari, sharing:
“Kristin felt like it was a good time to focus on what is next for her. She and Jay have always agreed to not have the kids featured on the show, and when they did appear its always from the back. Now with the divorce, there really isn’t much of a show left to do… Plus, she really wants to take care of her life and her family, and get settled in her new situation, and adding any kind of filming schedule on top of that also did not make sense for her.”
Hopefully, Kristin and Jay — who share kids Camden Jack Cutler, Jaxon Wyatt Cutler, and Saylor James Cutler — can get through this situation as quickly and painlessly as possible.
