AceShowbiz - It seems like things are becoming complicated once again for Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler amid their divorce. According to multiple reports, the former athlete wants to have 50 percent ownership of Kristin's lifestyle and jewelry brand Uncommon James.
The company is currently owned by the "Very Cavallari" star. However, Jay apparently thinks that he should get half of it because the brand was launched when they were married. Kristin, meanwhile, insisted that she funded the business by using her own money.
Kristin once talked about how Jay thought he's a co-owner of Uncommon James in an August 2018 episode of her E! reality show. "He thinks he owns half of this company, and he does not. That is not on our non-existent prenup," so she said in the outing.
She then jokingly addressed the matter once again in a March 2019 episode of the show. "Jay already thinks he owns half the company, so by me letting him go in, I'm potentially creating a monster," Cavallari laughed after sending Jay to help her employees.
In the episode, Jay also claimed that he worked in IT, shipping and designing as well as a general consultant in the early days of the brand. Kristin, however, shut down his claims.
Kristin and Jay announced their split in April 2020. During their seven years of marriage, they have three children together--sons Camden (8), Jaxon (7) and daughter Saylor (5). "With great sadness after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce," the pair said in a joint statement. "We have nothing but love and respect for one another and are deeply grateful for the years shared, memories made, and the children we are so proud of. This is just the situation of two people growing apart."
They reached a joint custody agreement in May. The pair also sparked reconciliation rumors when they appeared to be close again earlier this year.
