Former Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is blocking soon-to-be ex wife Kristen Cavallari from purchasing a new home for her and their three children to live in, Cavallari says in new court documents. 

The filing reveals that Cavallari has been house hunting since the fall of 2019 due to her split with Cutler. The purchase was paused when the couple attempted to resolve their quarrels, but they failed to do so. According to the documents, they “realized the attempt to reconcile was not working and knew a divorce was inevitable.” In early March, Cavallari went back to trying to buy a house. 

This was put to a halt when Cutler informed her, “his attorney was going to tell their business manager to not release the funds.” 

Cavallari claimed that this was a way of “punishing” her and her attorney stated that, “This is typical of Husband’s behavior towards Wife.” 

Cavallari has continued to request the judge allows her to purchase a new home using her portion of their funds. 

Documents states, “Wife does not believe that it is in the best interest of either party or their minor children to reside in the same household… Wife fears that if the parties are required to remain in the same residence, it would be an unhealthy environment, causing irreparable harm to their minor children. Husband makes inappropriate statements to and about Wife and attempts to draw her into an argument in front of their minor children. Now that Husband has announced he will not leave so Wife can exercise parenting time with the children, Wife fears the situation will escalate.”
