Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler’s divorce stalls as he petitions for ’50 percent ownership’ of her company Uncommon James

They made the decision to end their seven-year marriage nearly one year ago.

And Kristin Cavallari’s divorce to Jay Cutler is stalled in courts as he reportedly petitioned for ’50 percent ownership’ of her company, Uncommon James.

The 34-year-old reality star launched the jewelry brand out of her home in Chicago in 2017 and has since opened multiple stores, a business which Cutler argues he’s entitled to a portion of because it began when they were married.

Kristin opened her third storefront recently in Dallas, Texas, and has brick-and-mortar locations in Nashville, Tennessee, and Chicago, Illinois. 

Sources told TMZ that ‘Kristin doesn’t feel she owes him anything from Uncommon James’ because she started the business with her own money.

She’s reportedly ‘pushing back hard’ against his quest for ownership of the brand which also boasts a range of apparel and home goods.

Jay and Kristin announced their intent to separate in April 2020 after 10 years together, seven years of marriage and three children: Camden, eight, Jaxon, seven, and Saylor, five.

She told Hollywood Life that their split has made her a better mom to her kids.

‘I’d say it’s maybe made me a better mom in some ways because I have my kids half of the time now,’ she said. ‘So when I have them for my week, I am so incredibly present.’

The Hills star reflected on the year as she’s adjusted to being a single parent and admitted she’s seen a lot of positive changes. 

‘I am not distracted by my phone or anything else,’ she said. ‘I am with them. If someone is having a temper tantrum or something, I remain calm because I know that I am losing them in a few days.’

Kristin requested to change back to her maiden name on Nov. 4, 2020, and the process was completed the next day.

And while divorce proceedings are sealed and not yet finalized, it appears the pair are still on good terms.

In January, the former couple sent fans into a frenzy when they posted an identical selfie of them together.

The friendly exes, who have three children together, even used the same caption in their posts: ‘The world is full of users. 10 years. Can’t break that.’
