Here's why Kristin Cavallari kicked Jay Cutler to the curb

Very Cavallari star Kristin Cavallari and NFL alum Jay Cutler announced their divorce in April 2020, after seven years of marriage. The couple, who started dating in 2010 and welcomed three kids during their union, blamed the split on "growing apart."

Despite their seemingly mature breakup announcement, the split quickly became messy, with both parties disagreeing over custody and their living arrangements. Cutler had asked for joint custody of their kids, while Cavallari filed for primary custody. The reality star also accused the former quarterback of blocking her from buying a $5 million home in Tennessee, where the now exes have lived since 2017.

The two have since reached an agreement, and they've been named "joint primary residential parents," with "each spending 182.5 days with the kids a year and alternating time with the kids on a week-on, week-off basis," as People reported. What's more? Cutler has since released the funds for Cavallari to buy her home, where she'll live with her kids when she has custody.

Now that the dust surrounding their divorce has seemingly settled, let's take a minute to explore why Kristin Cavallari kicked Jay Cutler to the curb in the first place.

Does Kristin Cavallari think Jay Cutler is lazy?

In Season 3 of Very Cavallari, Kristin Cavallari brought up the possibility of Jay Cutler launching a career in sports broadcasting. Cutler said he explored the option, but didn't find the right fit. "One wants me to do some studio stuff, but I don't really want to do that," Cutler, who would rather be a game analysis in the broadcast booth, told Cavallari (via the New York Post). 

Cavallari brought up the idea of Cutler getting a job once before, encouraging him to open up a butcher shop aptly called "Cuts." The reality star told Cutler, "Like, how fun would it be for you to have an office to go to every day." 

A source told Page Six that Cavallari was frustrated with Cutler's lack of a job after he retired from the NFL in 2017, claiming, "She was growing increasingly impatient with him. 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." They added, "Instead, he backed out — this is [three] years ago — and joined the [Miami] Dolphins. That didn't pan out well, and he was left with no TV gig until she got the show for them."

The insider said Cavallari found Cutler to be "lazy" and "unmotivated," while she viewed herself as "very polished and put together."

Who knows, maybe it was for the best these two split up.
