It was only just a week ago that the world was swooning over Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler’s seemingly perfect lives on Instagram as the couple was stranded on one of the most beautiful beaches during the quarantine. While many news outlets and memes joke over who is going to remain married after this whole lockdown experience ends, it seems as if this pair didn’t make the cut. Just yesterday Cavallari announced their split on social media, which shocked fans who thought the couple was going strong for the past ten years.
Yet, today, it has been reported that the pair have officially filed for divorce and Cavallari cited “inappropriate marital conduct” within the divorce filings. According to TMZ, who obtained the divorce documents, Cavallari has reportedly said that the 36-year-old former NFL quarterback “is guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper.” Cavallari also made sure to claim “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.”
It was Cutler who initially filed for divorce from Cavallari, but he did not mention any sort of “misconduct” against Cavallari within his petition. It only came to light once Cavallari filed her own documents that such claims were made. Cavallari is reportedly asking for primary physical custody of the children they share together—daughter Saylor, 4, and sons Camden, 7, and Jaxon, 5. Cavallari is only petitioning for Cutler to get visitation—nothing else. The documents obtained by TMZ read, “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 …”
Cavallari also reportedly wants Cutler to provide child support in order to pay for their children’s health insurance, as well as getting a life insurance policy where she “is listed as sole beneficiary.” Things are a bit different from Cutler’s side of the table, as he wants joint custody of the kids. He is arguing that he “has always been the available at-home parent and the primary caretaker of the parties minor children.” It looks like both sides are arguing very different things.
There is another glaring discrepancy in between what both parties are claiming of the separation in the documents obtained. Cutler has listed their date of separation as April 21, 2020, while Cavallari is claiming that it was April 7, the exact same day the family returned back to Nashville after being stuck in the Bahamas during quarantine. While Cavallari announced the news of the split on her Instagram this past week, she claimed it was that the pair was “growing apart.” But it seems these documents are telling another story.
