Current and former NFL players have taken to social media on Wednesday to weigh in on the news about former quarterback Jay Cutler.
Cutler, who last played in the NFL in 2017, is getting divorced from his longtime wife, Kristin Cavallari. The divorce has reportedly not been finalized yet, though, and we're starting to learn why.
According to a report from TMZ Sports, one holdup in the divorce settlement is that Cutler is seeking half of Cavallari's business, Uncommon James. Cutler reportedly argues that the business was launched during their marriage, so he has rights to half of it.
From the report:
Sources close to the ex-couple tell TMZ … the reason it's taking a while to finalize their divorce is because Jay's seeking 50 percent ownership of Uncommon James, Kristin's chic jewelry and apparel line.
We're told Cutler's insisting he should get a stake in UJ because Kristin launched it while they were married … and well before he filed for divorce in April, 2020.
Several current and former NFL players have taken to social media to praise Cutler for the news.
Jay Cutler for president! Do this for all the men in the world https://t.co/ZpaDXlRq7S

Cutler and Cavallari announced their divorce last year.
"With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce. 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 couple announced.
