The Hills alum Kristin Cavallari‘s love life has kept fans guessing since she and her husband of seven years, Jay Cutler, split in April 2020. While she seemingly moved on briefly with comedian Jeff Dye, the Uncommon James founder has sparked dating rumors with country singer Chase Rice. Keep reading for everything we know about who the Laguna Beach babe is dating right now.
Kristin and Jeff first sparked romance rumors in October 2020 when they were spotted kissing in a Chicago bar. In the days following their public tryst, an insider told In Touch that the couple’s “chemistry” is “off the charts” and they already have a spark. “She really, really likes him, and they’re seeing what happens,” the source added.
“Kristin thinks Jeff is super sexy, and he constantly has her in hysterics, which is one of the key things she looks for in a man,” the insider said at the time. “They bounce off of each other, and he’s just her type!”
The dynamic duo even exchanged “I Love Yous” during an Instagram Live broadcast in early January 2021, but according to People, Kristin and Jeff split later that month. Interestingly enough, social media sleuths noted Jeff spoke highly of Kristin during a comedy show a week prior to the news of their split, so it seems they may be on good terms.
In another surprising turn of events, Kristin and Jeff fueled rumors they rekindled things doing a social media Valentine’s Day challenge where they filled out the blanks on February 2. “Dear J, you can skip the chocolate this year, I want tequila, a beach and [a] secret rose candle at Uncommon James. Xoxo, KC,” Kristin’s post on Instagram Stories read.
The comedian echoed the same sentiments in his own post, writing, “Dear K, you can skip the distance this year, I want drinks, dancing, and you from Uncommon James. Xoxo, Jeffy.”
Us Weekly reported on March 18 that the pair had split once again. However, the Daily Mail obtained photos of the pair poolside lounging on recliners and kissing at a resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, just two days later. It appears they have since fizzled out.
Kristin has moved on with Nashville singer Chase. A source told Us Weekly on August 31 that she and country crooner are a casual couple at the moment but “really like each other.”
“It’s still very new,” the source said. “They’ve been spotted around Nashville on a couple of dates, she’s been to one of his shows, and they’re taking things slow.”
Kristin has been keeping fans guessing and even previously sparked reconciliation rumors with Jay on January 23, when they posed for a photo posted to each of their social media accounts.
“The world is full of users. 10 years. Can’t break that,” read the identical captions on their pictures. In the snapshots, Kristin leaned into her former flame with her arms crossed as the pair stared down the camera. However, it appeared to be a nod to their strong friendship.
The MTV alum revealed the pair were divorcing in April 2020, after seven years of marriage. “With great sadness, after 10 years together, we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce,” she wrote on Instagram. “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. We ask everyone to respect our privacy as we navigate this difficult time within our family.”
The former NFL player and reality star share three children — sons Camden Jack and Jaxon Wyatt and daughter Saylor James.
