Jana Kramer was out with Jay Cutler at a bar when she ran into her ex


I thought Jana Kramer still lived in Los Angeles and couldn’t figure out where she had all this time to run around with her new beau Jay Cutler. That’s my fault, BTW, because Jana and her ex Mike Caussin have clearly lived in Nashville for a while. But this whole Cutler romance makes much more sense now that I realize he did not have to make any effort for it. However, because they are all in the same town, awkward run-ins are always possible, especially when you’re chasing fame or your next hook up. And that’s exactly what happened when a new bar opened in Nashville. Jay and Jana made their first official We’re a Couple outing, only to have Mike there. The photographers at the event caught on to the tension in the room and did everything they could to make it worse. They kept begging Jana to get a shot of the three of them, something Jana claims she forbade. That did stop her from detailing her every feeling about the run in when asked.

After Jana Kramer and Jay Cutler made headlines when they posed for a photo together during a September 8 night out in Nashville, she opened up about the experience — and revealed her ex-husband Mike Caussin was also there.

The duo was spotted together, with their arms around one another, at the opening of the Twelve Thirty Club rooftop bar and the One Tree Hill alum, 37, recalled seeing Caussin, 34, there with another woman.

“I haven’t [seen the photo] either, but you know what’s really messed up? My ex was there the same night and the photographer tried getting a picture with all three of us and I was like ‘No, no, no, no, no nice try,’” she recalled during the Monday, September 20, episode of her “Whine Down” podcast.

When the singer was asked if she knew her ex — with whom she shares daughter Jolie, 5, and son Jace, 2 — would be in attendance that night, the Soccer Mom Madam actress revealed that she “had a feeling” he’d show up.

“I would say that was really hard to see him there,” the “I Got the Boy” crooner said. “See him flirt with other girls and I mean, granted, I was there as well doing my thang but it was really hard. You know what was hard? It looked so easy for him. Does that make sense? Where it’s, like, it looked like it didn’t bother him one second and that, like, hurt, you know? Because I was just, like, he’s just untamed and uncaged and he’s happy.”

The Christmas in Louisiana star noted that she spoke with her ex that night, which felt “strange.”

“I was like ‘This is awkward,’ and he’s like ‘Not at all,’” she remembered of that night. “And I was, like, ‘Ugh, OK.’ I’m glad that he was fine with [them both being out with other people] but at the same time … I talked to my therapist about it and just a little piece of me was, like, it would’ve been nice to be like ‘Yeah, this is hard, but I’m glad we can be cordial.’ That acknowledgment that it could hurt a little bit.”

I’m not saying that any of Jana’s feelings are invalid. I just don’t know that she has to tell everyone about it. Mike has shown Jana who he is for the entirety if their relationship, I just cannot buy into her surprise anymore. Of course he’s flirting “untamed.” Of course he has no problem hitting up women while in the same room with Jana. He did that while they were married, why would divorce stop him? As for Jay, I know they’re new, but I wouldn’t be too hip on my girlfriend blabbering on how hung up she still was on her ex to the press. It doesn’t bode well for the strength of their bond.

However, what also doesn’t bode well for the future of Jayna is that Kristin Cavallari’s friends claim Jay is only dating Jana to make Kristin jealous. They say Jana is nothing like his “ideal girl.” My misgivings over a grown man having an “ideal girl” fantasy aside, wait to hear what turns Jay off. Get this, Kristin’s friends see a potential issue with the fact that Jana, “shares a lot of her personal life with her fans — she’s just not the typical girl Jay would date.” Oh, ya think?!

    Ugh Jay Cutler is really awful. And she seems like his type physically.
    These 2 need to be single for a while and work on all their major issues. Separate their businesses. Focus on coparenting.

  2. Mina_Esq says:

    I can’t believe these people are adults and caregivers to young children. They are all so very immature. I have no issue with her over sharing. There is obviously an audience for that. What I wish for her, however, is a break from dating. I was once in an abusive relationship with a narcissist. It took me two years to recover. You really need that alone time to process and heal. Jumping into a thing with another guy is just another unhealthy step for her.

  3. Sequinedheart says:

    This is so juvenile! This is the crap me and my girlfriends would pull when we were 20. So lame

    • Erin says:

      Totally agree, this is high school/college drama. I also agree with Hecate that he has shown her over and over again who he is so acting surprised is either performative or she still hasn’t learned anything from all of this.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      Nobody would be paying attention to them if it weren’t for the drama though, right?

  4. Susan says:

    This Jana character seems to have made a career out of being the girl who dates/marries/get involves with jerks. Which I guess is a career path in reality tv circles? Maybe she will get involved with a toxic bachelor from the Bachelor franchise next.

  5. Princess Peach says:

    I don’t believe Kristin’s friends. She’s a narcissist and clearly wants everyone to believe she is super desirable. Does anyone remember how she harassed one of his teammates for saying John Mulaney’s gf was the hottest NFL Wag? It was so cringey.

    As for Jana…doesn’t sound like she is ready to be dating.

  6. smcollins says:

    So, basically, she’s pissed that he’s not pining away for her, jealous of her being with another man, and begging her to take him back. I get the feeling that she didn’t “have a feeling” he’d be at the same function, she was *hoping* he’d be there and it blew up in her face. I know she’s had awful, traumatizing experiences with men but, wow…her issues obviously run deep but maybe focusing on herself and her children instead of playing these juvenile games would better help her to deal with them (because therapy alone isn’t going to work if she doesn’t take actual action in her life to make changes).

    • Kebbie says:

      Also, she’s really bad at the juvenile games. Jay was a legit football star. Her ex is a failed football player. She could have easily made Mike jealous going out with Jay, but then she goes on her podcast and bares all. She had the upper hand and she just gave him all the power again.

  7. Izzy says:

    All of these people seem like immature train wrecks.

  8. Case says:

    I say this kindly — Jana clearly needs a better therapist. This is high school silliness. Of COURSE her ex wasn’t jealous and has no problem flirting with other women, he cheated on her their entire relationship!

    I feel bad for their kids.

    • PoppedBubble says:

      Hard agree. Preferably one who can help make her understand that Mike is a narcissist who will truly and honestly not care or feel bad, jealous, etc. about her because he is incapable of those feelings. She’s got to understand though it may look like it, he doesn’t care about any woman he’s with. When she finally accept that, she can finally focus on why she loves men like that and making sure she stops doing that. Instead it’s all self love mantras and “being strong.” So annoying because she doesn’t learn.

  9. Kebbie says:

    Jana is exactly Jay’s type. She’s seems exactly like Kristin Cavallari to me.

    And Jay is the kind of guy who goes after qualities he claims to not like, so he ends up with fame seeking women who over share and put everything out there in the press.

    What’s funny is Kristin clearly sees herself as being more discreet than Jana lol

  10. Tanya Nguyen says:

    I feel really sad for Jana. She has obviously not learned from past very traumatic experiences. It shows in the fact that she is so surprised that her ex doesn’t miss her. He never cared about her, he never loved her and he was never committed to their marriage. I was hoping she would truly allow this knowledge to sink in and that it would help her in navigating dating. If someone shows you unkindness and contempt, then run far away. I really don’t want her to keep being treated like crap. She doesn’t have to stick around for it.

  11. Les says:

    Their styles – Kristin’s , Jenna, Jay, Mike – all seem interchangeable to me

  12. AMA1977 says:

    Jana is addicted to drama, pure and simple. The ink was barely dry on the divorce decree before she was “entangled” with some other guy she claimed was a long-time friend. Now that has fizzled and she’s moved on to this turd, who is churlish, dumb, anti-science, and so unlikeable that he, a moderately conventionally attractive white former NFL QB, couldn’t get a TV career off the ground. She is still hung up on her ex, and all of her validation is external. If your internal dialogue of not being good enough is constantly forcing you to overshare, accept abusive behavior, “forgive” terrible breaches of your trust, and generally devalue your worth, then you will never be at peace and never make good decisions. I feel sorry for her, and it is unconscionable that her young children have witnessed this behavior their whole lives and are learning to be adults from these damaged people.

  13. Stacy Dresden says:

    Gross. Too old for this. I’m referring to me AND the subjects of this story. Lol

  14. TIFFANY says:

    Jay had children with and married a reality TV personality.

    He know who he dating.

  15. lena horne says:

    I really wish this woman would go away. But I love reading her train wreck story.

  16. Gigi says:

    Um, let’s see. She needs content for her podcast and she had a song drop yesterday. I think I might have a clue why I’m hearing about this.
