Kristin Cavallari made the move to divorce her estranged husband Jay Cutler. The Very Cavallari star wanted to end her marriage quickly. But it could turn out to be a messy divorce. Jay was the first to file for divorce on April 21 in a Tennessee court. Kristin filed court documents on Friday, April 24 to get the divorce moving as quickly as possible.
The couple then announced their shocking split on Sunday, April 26. On the reality show, Kristin and Jay discussed their prenuptial agreement. They even joked about it. But it’s not funny anymore since their prenup will be part of their divorce battle.
Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler joked about prenup on reality show
According to The Blast, Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler laughed about the terms of their prenuptial agreement years before their divorce. It was a simpler time when the couple was on good terms. On the July 2018 episode of Very Cavallari, Kristin and Jay discussed their prenup on their couch. It stemmed from the issues with her business, Uncommon James.
Kristin vented to Jay about her employees acting inappropriately at work. Jay told her to fire one of the employees. Kristin said that he doesn’t understand because he doesn’t run his own business. Later, Jay joked that he owned half of the company, but she didn’t agree with him. The two joked that they would have to revisit that idea in their prenuptial agreement.

Kristin Cavallari’s divorce battle is heating up
The prenup is no longer a joke. It’s become a problem in their already messy divorce battle, as per The Blast. Jay wants the court to enforce the prenuptial agreement they signed before their marriage. He claims it holds all the answers to their agreement on child support, division of property, and spousal support. Jay is seeking legal and physical custody of their three children.
The reason for Jay’s divorce is “irreconcilable differences which rendered further cohabitation improper and impossible.”
Kristin wants primary custody of their children. She’s also demanding a cut of the former NFL’s retirement account. The reality star also accused him of “inappropriate material conduct.”
The couple released a joint statement
Over the weekend, the couple shocked fans when they released a joint statement about their divorce.
“With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce. We have nothing but love and respect for one another and are deeply grateful for the years shared, memories made, and the children we are so proud of. This is just the situation of two people growing apart. We ask everyone to respect our privacy as we navigate this difficult time within our family.”
