She didn’t Cav in.
Kristin Cavallari says she and her ex-husband Jay Cutler attempted to make things work amid their divorce — even going on a few dates — but eventually “decided I didn’t want to be in a toxic relationship anymore.”
Speaking to Kaitlyn Bristowe on her “Off the Vine” podcast, Cavallari discussed her split with Cutler, calling it “such a roller coaster but … probably the best decision I’ve ever made.”
“There’s been times over the last 18 months where I’m like, ‘Is this the right decision?’” Cavallari, 34, told Bristowe. “Jay [and] I actually went on a couple of dates like months and months and months ago.”
“But,” she continued, “then I was like … It’s not there for me anymore.”
Cavallari further explained, “The thing with Jay is, we aren’t getting our divorce because of love lost, right, which made it really challenging because we were crazy about each other.
“And so I just decided I didn’t want to be in a toxic relationship anymore and I had to break it off. But that’s made it hard and made me sit here and question it for a few months. But then going back and dating him a little bit made me reaffirm it like, ‘No, I know that I’m doing the right decision.’”
Cavallari and Cutler, 38, announced their breakup in April 2020. “It didn’t happen overnight,” Cavallari went on to tell People in September of that year. “We tried really, really hard for years and years. It was the hardest decision I’ve ever made.”
Their divorce is ongoing. The pair share sons Camden, 9, and Jaxon, 7, and daughter Saylor, 5.
