Kristin Cavallari has filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, in which she alleges “misconduct” on the part of Jay Cutler and claims that’s what triggered the divorce. She says Jay “is guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper.”It’s puzzling because Kristin also insinuates Jay has accused her of misconduct … “any misconduct alleged or implied against her in the complaint for divorce was in response to and/or as a result of misconduct on behalf of the Husband.” But Jay never mentioned “misconduct” against Kristin in his petition.Kristin is asking for primary physical custody and wants Jay to have visitation. He wants joint custody of their 3 kids.She also wants child support and wants Jay to pay for their kids’ health insurance and maintain a life insurance policy where she is listed as sole beneficiary.Kristin says the grounds for divorce are both “inappropriate marital conduct” and “irreconcilable differences.” Something must have happened during their quarantine, because Kristin lists the date of separation as April 7, the day they came back from the Bahamas. Jay lists the date of separation as April 21.UPDATE:Kristin Cavallari accused her estranged husband Jay Cutler of “marital misconduct” in divorce papers filed this week, and it had fans talking about whether that meant there was an infidelity in the marriage.
Well, we now know the answer to this.
It turns out, Tennessee, where the divorce is taking place, is a “fault state,” which means the person asking for the divorce must show that the “fault” is on the spouse. So, according to TMZ, “Kristin and Jay can’t end the marriage without some showing of misconduct.” Apparently, the term “inappropriate marital conduct” is common in Tennessee divorce filings because of the “fault state” guideline.
TMZ is reporting that the one thing about Jay‘s divorce filing that upset her was that he said he was the “at-home parent” who was the “primary caretaker.” She disputes this, and wants primary custody of their three kids. The site is also saying that the breakup did not happen because of another woman.
