Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler shocked fans at the end of April when they announced, in the midst of worldwide quarantine orders, that they were divorcing after 10 years as a couple, seven of which they'd spent married. While that initial news made the split sound amicable enough, things got heated pretty quickly, and now we know how Cavallari has been spending her quarantine time during those divorce proceedings.
The entrepreneur and Very Cavallari star recently spoke to her stylist, Dani Michelle, on an Instagram Live (via E! News), and decided to be totally honest about what life is like for her and her three children (7-year-old Camden, 6-year-old Jaxon, and 4-year-old Saylor) during quarantine, including where they're living and how her schedule has changed. Here's what Cavallari had to say:
Well, it makes a lot of sense that Kristin Cavallari wouldn't have stayed in the same house with her soon-to-be ex-husband Jay Cutler during this time, which is stressful enough for a lot of people. Instead, Cavallari and her children have bunked with her good friend, and Very Cavallari co-star, celebrity hairstylist Justin Anderson. Cavallari said that they've actually been staying with Anderson since returning from a three-week family trip to the Bahamas, where Anderson and his fiancé, Jay, were also along for the vacation (along with Cutler).
Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler got word of the stay at home order while in the Bahamas with their kids, but eventually made their way back to Nashville, which they've called home. There were already rumors that the couple had been trying to make their marriage work for quite some time, which were really fueled by speculation that Cutler cheated on Cavallari with a former friend of hers (which was denied by all parties). So, if this trip was meant to be a final family vacation before announcing their split, it's pretty easy to understand why they'd head back and live apart immediately.
It only took a couple of days for the divorce to go from the outward appearance of a non-contentious one to looking like something that could get very messy. Cavallari added "inappropriate marital conduct" to her divorce filing, along with citing "irreconcilable differences" as Cutler had, and Cutler said in his filing that he was the "at-home parent" who provided most of the care for their kids, which Cavallari took exception to.
Kristin Cavallari later filed additional divorce papers, which stated that she was trying to find a home for her and her kids, only to have Jay Cutler tell their business manager not to release the money she'd need to obtain her own home. Those same papers also alleged that Cutler was trying to instigate arguments with her in front of their children by saying "inappropriate" things to and about her, and she feared the situation would get worse once he refused to leave the home.
If Cutler is capable of being mean enough to Cavallari to make her cry, which is rumored to have happened on the set of Very Cavallari, then it's no wonder she packed up the family to stay with Justin Anderson.
Even though Kristin Cavallari is clearly going through a lot right now, she did say that she's trying to enjoy the extra time she's now getting to spend with her children:
