The marriage between Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler is not only over, but it is going to get nasty in the impending divorce.
It was over the weekend when Jay and Kristin released joint statements that they were both ending their 10-year marriage.
“With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce. 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.”
Less than 24 hours later, TMZ got hold of the legal documents that show Kristin was alleging “misconduct” by Cutler that triggered the divorce.
“She says Jay “is guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper.”
It’s puzzling because Kristin also insinuates Jay has accused her of misconduct … “any misconduct alleged or implied against her in the complaint for divorce was in response to and/or as a result of misconduct on behalf of the Husband.” Jay, who filed for divorce, never mentioned “misconduct” against Kristin in his petition.
Kristin is asking for primary physical custody and wants Jay to have visitation. He wants joint custody of their 3 kids.
She also wants child support and wants Jay to pay for their kids’ health insurance and maintain a life insurance policy where she is listed as sole beneficiary.”
“Kristin says the grounds for divorce are both “inappropriate marital conduct” and “irreconcilable differences.” Something must have happened during their quarantine, because Kristin lists the date of separation as April 7, the day they came back from the Bahamas. Jay lists the date of separation as April 21.
She’s asking for primary custody, claiming Jay has been something of an absentee father … “She denies that Husband has always been the available at home parent and primary caretaker of the parties’ minor children. Wife would show that she has been the primary residential parent …” Jay says in his petition, “Husband has always been the available at-home parent and the primary caretaker of the parties minor children.”
As you might remember, it was earlier this year when Kristin Cavallari revealed on the E! reality show ‘Very Cavallari’ that she and her best friend Kelly Henderson hadn’t spoken all summer in the aftermath of the rumor that Henderson and Cavallari’s husband Jay Cutler were having an affair.
