‘Very Cavallari’: Kristin Cavallari May Have Lowkey Hinted That She Was Getting Divorced Months Before Her Official Announcement

It looked like Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler’s divorce was going to get very ugly, very quickly. Initially, reports indicated that the former couple was ready to battle over cash and the custody of their three children. Now, it seems like they’ve reached an amicable agreement. The quick turnaround might have something to do with the fact that they both saw this divorce coming. In fact, Cavallari may have hinted at the impending divorce during a fan event more than two months ago.  

Kristin Cavallari advised a fan not to get married

Even as their marital problems mounted, Cavallari and Cutler offered the public a seemingly united front. They attended events together, filmed a reality TV show together, and even took part in meet and greets together. One such event, however, gave fans a real glimpse into the couple’s marriage.

TMZ unearthed a video from February 2020 that showed Cavallari and Cutler answering fan questions at an Uncommon James event. In the video, one fan asked Cavallari for advice about life as a newlywed. The fan, according to Cosmopolitan, was recently engaged. Cavallari didn’t even take a moment to think about the question. She quickly told the fan, “don’t do it.”  The group, Cavallari and even Cutler, all laughed at the advice, but looking back, it doesn’t feel like a joke.

Cavallari is not known for having much of a verbal filter. In fact, she has made an entire career out of oversharing. She happily told fans about dealing with a blocked mammary duct and recounted her colonic date with Cutler for the television cameras. The admission, which seemed like a joke back in February, may have been Cavallari’s way of subtly announcing the end of her marriage.

The video doesn’t just clearly show that Cavallari was questioning her decision to tie the knot, months before she announced her official split. It also indicates that Cutler was over the relationship, too. For the duration of the video, Cutler is seen in the frame, looking uneasy. In fact, it seems like he’d rather be just about anywhere other than where he was.

It makes sense, now. Cavallari and Cutler’s marriage was clearly on the rocks for several months. In Very Cavallari, Cavallari stated, repeatedly, that she was frustrated by the state of her marriage, and Cutler’s cavalier attitude about it. In the divorce filings, Cutler said that he had separated from his wife several weeks before they returned from a lengthy vacation to the Bahamas.  

Can Kristin and Jay’s separation be amicable?

While the writing was clearly on the wall for months, it looks like Cavallari and Culter have figured out a way to move forward amicably. Their disagreements about money seem to have been settled. Cutler agreed to allow Cavallari to purchase a Nashville mansion with marital funds. They have even come up with a permanent custody solution that will enable them to parent equally.

The only issue left seems to be the “marital misconduct” that Cavallari cited in her court papers. While the term has led many to believe Cutler cheated on his wife of seven years, that isn’t necessarily the case. Marital misconduct could point to any number of issues, but a reputation management consultant told Fox News, none of it bodes well for Cutler’s image.
