Last week we heard that Jana Kramer was divorcing her husband, Mike Caussin, after years of his cheating and her taking him back. These two built a cottage industry around forgiving infidelity and treating Mike’s serial cheating as an addiction they could somehow overcome. Ultimately Jana gave up after catching Mike cheating for the umpteenth time. We didn’t cover it, but she told multiple outlets that was the final straw. Now we’re hearing that she checked the “adultery” box on her divorce filing. I’m glad that she actually filed for divorce, because given her history I did not expect her to go through with it. Here’s more from E! and I’m also quoting People on the reasons for their divorce, which I missed before.
Jana Kramer’s petition to divorce Mike Caussin reveals new details about her decision to leave her husband after six years of marriage.
In the divorce filing obtained by E! News on Monday, April 26, the 37-year-old country singer lists her reason for separating from the former football player as “inappropriate marital conduct, irreconcilable differences and adultery.”
Additionally, the documents reveal Jana and Mike entered a post nuptial agreement, and she wishes to share custody of their two children, Jolie Rae, 5, and son Jace Joseph, 2. She also asks for Mike to pay alimony and cover the cost of of her legal fees.
Their date of separation is listed as Tuesday, April 20, one day prior to Jana’s divorce announcement in which she wrote that she couldn’t “fight any longer.” – From E!
A source tells PEOPLE that the divorce is due to infidelity, which the couple had previously separated over in 2016.
“He cheated and broke her trust again,” the source says. “After fighting for the marriage for so long, she’s come to terms with the realization that his patterns were never going to change.”
“The focus now is on their kids,” they add. – From People
I hope Jana gets the peace she needs to heal, and I really hope this is the last straw for her. I listened to their podcast exactly once and the way Mike lied, deflected and talked around his cheating was despicable. It was clear that Jana knew what was happening and just kept hoping he would change with enough therapy and talking about it. You can’t marry or get into a relationship with someone based on the hope that they’ll change. They show you who they are early on.
