Jay Cutler Accused of Making Estranged Wife “Cry All the Time” While Filming Reality TV Show

Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler really seemed to be the beacon of a happy couple while on their reality TV show, “Very Cavallari.”

Things came to a crashing end once cheating rumors surfaced earlier this year and then both parties released statements on Instagram that they were headed towards a divorce.

Now things are being uncovered and aren’t painting Cutler as a model husband when filming their reality TV show, according to PEOPLE.

“He would make her cry all the time during production. He talked down to her and belittled her,” a Cavallari friend tells PEOPLE. “She couldn’t take it anymore.”

Another source close to Cavallari, 33, says the exes have been “struggling” for “at least three years,” and that the Uncommon James founder has long been unhappy.

“He belittles Kristin and makes her cry in front of other people,” the source says. “He flies off the handle at the littlest thing and would make Kristin absolutely miserable.”

Season 2 of the show showed a shocking moment where Cutler, who appeared to be drunk, told an entire group of friends how Cavallari was not the breadwinner, but “the breadspender,” wasting their money, before abruptly leaving the table.

Cavallari called his remarks “embarrassing” during a confessional.

Cavallari cited both “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct” as grounds for their divorce just one day after their announcement on Instagram.

“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,” they continued in a statement posted on their respective Instagram accounts.

Cavallari is seeking primary physical custody of their children while Cutler wants joint custody.

The pair tied the knot in 2013 and share sons Camden, 7, Jaxon, 5, and daughter Saylor, 4.
