Jana Kramer Says Meghan King’s Comment Bothered Her
During an October 31 episode of her “Whine Down” podcast, Kramer mentioned when she called out King for calling Caussin attractive. Kramer and the NFL player called it quits in 2021 after six years of marriage and two children.
The singer revealed that she was talking to the “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum, who she referred to as an “acquaintance.” Kramer said that King’s words seriously bothered her. “There was something that she said in our DMs that really bothered me,” she revealed.
The conversation took place in February and was based on resilience and strength during their respective divorces. Amid the conversation, Kramer claimed King said to her, “At least your ex is hot.” She continued per TooFab, “So I go, ‘I’m sorry that kind of bothered me. I would never say your ex is hot, especially knowing how much he hurt you. Anyways, have a great day. It just irked me, and we haven’t spoken since that.”
Jana Kramer Reveals Cheating Was Her Deal Breaker
Kramer further explained that for her, regardless of how good a person looked, as soon they cheated, their attractiveness was gone. “First, what does being hot have to do with it?” she asked. “Because me, when a man disrespects a woman, you ain’t hot, ever. You’re done.”
The singer added that she never considered a person’s attractiveness after they cheated on her. Kramer said, “I’ve dated some very attractive men. The second you lie to me, you are the ugliest human in a room to me. Or cheat; you are ugly to me. And I would never be like, ‘At least he was hot.’ The hotness has nothing to do with it.”
The actress revealed that although King apologized to her after the comments, she ghosted her shortly after. According to TooFab, Kramer shared, “She’s like, ‘Sorry, Jana, I was trying to lighten it up. I thought he was a good-looking guy when I saw him on your feed; I was trying to find a silver lining,'”
“I would’ve said, ‘At least you have beautiful children.’ That’s the silver lining.”
Meghan King Says She Was Complimenting The Singer
King joined Kramer as a guest on her podcast and tried to clarify her intention behind the previous statement. According to the reality star, her words were an attempt to give the “One Tree Hill” actress a compliment. She also intended to make light of a “sh*tty” situation.
King continued, “We both know it sucks. And so it’s like, alright, we both have these sh*tty situations, but at least he’s hot, and I said that because I don’t know, I thought it was a compliment. I thought it was a nice thing to say.”
The reality star apologized for her previous comments and said she never intended to make light of the situation. King, however, maintained that Kramer had overreacted at the time and that the actress was probably feeling sensitive.
Jana Kramer Divorced Mike Caussin Last Year
Kramer acknowledged King’s apology and reiterated that her children with Caussin were the actual silver lining in her divorce. She said, “For me, it’s like, we have our kids, and I’m grateful that was the silver lining for that relationship. And I’m never going to take away him as a dad, and I’m glad he’s the father… I have to have a silver lining.”
Kramer has two children, Jolie Ray and Jace Joseph, from her marriage with Caussin. The former couple announced their split in April 2021 and ended their six-year-long union. The artist released a message at the time revealing that she fought to make the marriage work, but it was all for naught.
The April 21 post read, “As I try to make sense of a reality I never wanted to believe could be possible again, those words have now become a reality. I’ve fought y’all. I’ve loved hard. I’ve forgiven. I’ve put the work in. I’ve given everything I have, and now I have nothing else to give. ‘It’s time.'”
A source told E! News that Caussin broke Kramer’s trust and caused the marriage to break irreparably. “Mike broke her trust yet again. He had so many chances to make this right, and she tried and tried, but she was really left with no choice.”
