Fans may be wondering who is Kristin Cavallari’s boyfriend, Jeff Dye, a.k.a. the man she’s dating after her divorce from Jay Cutler. We’ll explain what we know about their relationship later, but first, let’s recap Cavallari and Cutler’s divorce.

Cavallari and Cutler announced their divorce in April 2020 after 10 years together and almost seven years of marriage. The couple share three kids: son Camden, 8, son Jaxon, 6, and daughter Saylor, 4. In an interview with People in September, Cavallari revealed that her and Cutler’s marriage had issues long before they separated. “I always thought it was interesting when people would refer to us as ‘couple goals.’ I was like, ‘If you guys only knew,'” she said.

The Hills alum revealed that their marriage hit a lot point while they filmed season 3 of her E! reality series, Very Cavallari, in 2019. “We definitely kept a lot of stuff private,” she said. “Producers saw stuff, but they didn’t put it in the show—which is good, because I don’t want my kids to ever [see that].”

“It didn’t happen overnight,” Cavallari continued of their breakup. “We tried really, really hard for years and years. It was the hardest decision I’ve ever made.”

In the end, Cavallari explained that her marriage ended because the two were no long compatible. “Every relationship has their stuff. I met Jay when I was 23. I was a baby. Jay and I had so much love for each other, but we grew up,” she said. “When you work at something for so many years and nothing’s changing, I think you have to just make a decision. We all want to be happy.”

Now with Cavallari and Cutler’s divorce out of the way, let’s explain what we know about her new boyfriend, Jeff Dye.

It’s unclear when Cavallari and Dye started dating, but news broke of their relationship in October 2020 after TMZ posted a video of them kissing in Chicago.

Who Is Kristin Cavallari’s boyfriend Jeff Dye?

So we know that Cavallari and Dye went public with their relationship in October 2020, but who is he? For one, Dye is a comedian. He was a finalist on season 6 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2008. He was also a correspondent on E!’s Hello Ross! and appeared on the reality TV show Better Late Than Never from 2016 to 2018. So he and his girlfriend have E! and reality TV in common.

“I like dating women who have kids because they’re already going to all the places I was gonna go,” he wrote at the time. “They’ll tell me their day like ‘we are getting breakfast, going to the water park, then getting ice cream’ I’m like me too! Shot gun!”
