Jay Cutler has been busy!
The former Chicago Bears quarterback has been single for a while now after splitting from his wife Kristin Cavallari in April of last year. That said, he’s back on the market and has been playing the field since. However, he revealed that dating can be “hard.”
Talking About The Reality Of Dating
“It’s hard as hell really,” he stated on his Uncut With Jay Cutler podcast. “Meeting people is hard. I think finding out what people really want from you; I think that’s probably an issue. I’m at a different phase of my life now with kids. Priorities have changed. It isn’t just a purely selfish play by my part.”
The football player added, “There are a lot of other aspects that have to be taken into consideration whenever you get back out into that world and the whole landscape has changed. There are apps, there’s Twitter, there’s Instagram, it’s a whole different ball game. You’re not just walking into a restaurant or bar and talking to somebody. That doesn’t exist anymore.”
He’s Back In The Game
Well, things might have been different recently for the pro athlete as multiple sources say he was out on a date with Jana Kramer.
“So far it’s just been one date,” an insider told People, adding that the country singer was being shady by going out with the father of three because of an alleged friendship with his ex-wife, but was not really proven. “Kristin and Jana are just acquaintances and have only met twice. They’re not friends.”
Another source claimed that Jana leaned on Kristin during her divorce from ex-husband Mike Caussin.
Not Happy For His Ex
A few days ago, news of the reality star dating Chase Rice broke out.
According to a source, Kristin and the country singer — who both live in Nashville — have been spending time together for a little over a month. “At the moment, it’s still casual. It’s new,” a source told E! News. “She’s been to one of his shows already and they’re having fun.”
Obviously, the news reached her ex-husband, and it didn’t sit well with him.
“Jay was trying to make Kristin jealous by going on this public date with Jana,” an insider speculated. “He’s not happy she’s dating Chase and has been trying to get Kristin back,” adding that the Uncommon James founder has blocked the Whine Down podcast host on social media.
Rumors of Jana and Jay dating first came to light when an Instagram account (@cocktailsandgossip) posted anonymous tips from fans who allegedly spotted the two having a meal at Bourbon Steak and grabbing drinks at Nashville hotspot L.A. Jackson.
“I think I had to just take some time to be alone, but I’m starting to dip my toes in again. There’s still a lot of work I have to do healing-wise, but I am entertaining things,” Jana recently shared in an interview. “There have been a few DM slides … the game’s different for me now. I’m not looking to just have a fling. I want to find my person.”
