Kristin Cavallari reportedly divorcing Jay Cutler because he was ‘lazy,' 'unmotivated’

Sporting News

The pending divorce between Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari comes, in part, because Cavallari thought of Cutler as "lazy" and "unmotivated" later in their marriage, per a report from Page Six.

"The Hills" star, who announced the couple's divorce in April, reportedly grew "increasingly impatient" with her husband's lack of ambition; he originally had planned to pursue a career in broadcasting at Fox Sports in 2017 following an eight-year career in Chicago. He was ready to take the job when he decided to back out and return to the NFL for one final season with the Dolphins. He threw for 2,660 yards, 19 touchdowns and 14 interceptions (plus four fumbles) for Miami in 2017.

Page Six, citing a source, reported that Cutler had nothing else lined up after retiring from the game for good.

"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,” the source told Page Six. “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 source also added that Cavallari views herself as "very polished and put together" — and Cutler as "this lazy, unmotivated guy.”

Cutler joined Cavallari's reality show "Very Cavallari" in July 2018, displaying the same irritability that he did as an NFL player — and becoming a surprising breakout star because of it. Page Six reports that Cutler has mulled another potential job in broadcasting; per "Very Cavallari," he has received offers from ESPN and CBS.
