Jay Cutler’s now dissolved marriage is still in the headlines as his ex-wife, Kristin Cavallari is explaining more about why the two are no longer together. Jay and Kristin announced their divorce in April 2020 in a joint statement.

“With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce,” the two said.

However, Cavallari went on a podcast to further explain why she had to separate from the former Chicago Bears quarterback.

“Basically I called off the engagement [for] the same reason I got a divorce, and so I guess if there’s any takeaway from that is you can’t ignore red flags,” Cavallari said on an episode earlier this month of the “Call Your Daddy” podcast. “People don’t change, and you’ve got to trust your gut.”

Cavallari has said that there wasn’t one thing that led her to file for divorce from the former NFL star. However, she said she was “really unhappy” with her “unhealthy relationship” with him and thought about her children; she didn’t want her children to believe that the energy in her marriage “was normal.”

“It was just time,” Cavallari continued. “Nothing major happened. At the end, it was just time. It’s the scariest thing. It’s always the saddest thing. I mean, it’s so many emotions, but it can also be the best thing. I’m very careful about what I say,” Cavallari said, adding that Camden even Googles his parents. “It was toxic, period, end of story. That’s all I need to say.”

Cutler heard the noise and responded to it recently to discuss how he handles knowing his marriage is being explained to the public.

“I’ve kind of steered clear of all of that,” Cutler said to Sofia Franklin on her podcast, “Sofia with an F.”

The two were married from 2013 to 2020, and they have three children: sons Camden, 9, and Jaxon, 8, and daughter Saylor, 6. The two mutually agree that their children are the main priority.

“If she wants to say stuff, she can say stuff. I’m not going to go down that road about her. I mean, she’s still the mother of my kids,” Cutler continued. “If that’s the way she feels, but I also don’t understand,” he continued.

For Cutler, he left room for doubt about the reasoning for the insight by Cavallari, making it seem like she is clout chasing based on the time since their divorce.

“It’s two and a half years [since the divorce]. Why are we having these conversations?” Cutler opined.

Cutler himself has been forthcoming with how he has felt since the divorce.

“When the settlement came through, I threw a party,” a laughing Cutler said during a conversation with Clay Travis on the latest episode of his “Uncut with Jay Cutler” podcast. “I don’t recommend divorce for anybody, let me go ahead and say that,” Cutler said. “It’s true and funny and it is what it is. It is a happy ending,” Cutler said. “Kristin got what she wanted. I won on the other side of it, so it is what it is. Everybody wins.”

The saga of Cutler and Cavallari’s failed marriage is continuing.
