Kristin Cavallari was upset that Jay Cutler had become something of an ‘unmotivated’ and ‘lazy’ homebody following his retirement from the NFL.
The 33-year-old stunner, insiders told Page Six, ‘views herself as very polished and put together, and [Cutler as] this lazy, unmotivated guy’ amid their split.
Cavallari was upset that Cutler, who played for the Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears and Miami Dolphins over 12 years in the league, did not have a burgeoning broadcasting career after leaving the gridiron.
The latest: Kristin Cavallari, 33, was upset that Jay Cutler, 36, had become something of an ‘unmotivated’ and ‘lazy’ homebody following his retirement from the NFL
The Very Cavallari beauty and the former NFL quarterback, 36, are divorcing after a decade-long relationship, seven as a married couple, and are parents to three kids – sons Camden, seven, and Jaxon, five; and daughter Saylor, four.
Cavallari ‘was growing increasingly impatient with’ Cutler’s tendency to relax on their Tennessee farm with the kids and their animals, as she had envisioned he’d have a seamless transition from the field to the broadcast booth
While he initially inked on to be a Fox Sports color commentator after he was cut by the Chicago Bears in March of 2017, he never made it to the booth, as he joined the Miami Dolphins in August of that year after they lost then-quarterback Ryan Tannehill to injury for the season.
‘She was growing increasingly impatient with him,’ a source said. ‘He was supposed to take this big job at Fox Sports and have a life after football that would get him up off the couch and do something. Instead, he backed out – this is years ago – and joined the Dolphins.

‘That didn’t pan out well, and he was left with no TV gig until she got the show [Very Cavallari] for them’ in 2018.
Sources earlier this week told E! that another issue between the former couple was that Cutler ‘wasn’t as supportive of her career as she would have liked,’ and that ‘the issues were ongoing for a long time’ and ‘things weren’t improving,’ despite that ‘they both wanted the marriage to work.’
In her Instagram post announcing the news, the Laguna Beach beauty said the split would be a cordial one: ‘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.’
