Kristin Cavallari has ended her romantic relationship with Jeff Dye. The former Very Cavallari star, 34, and the 38-year-old comedian had been an item for five months, but an insider told E! News that they have decided to end their long-distance romance. Cavallari lives in Nashville, while Dye is based in Los Angeles.
“It was never that serious to begin with,” the insider told the outlet. “She was having fun.”
Another source told ET the romance between Cavallari and Dye began “fizzling out.”
“Kristin wasn’t ever looking for anything serious,” the insider said. “She enjoyed Jeff’s company and he made her laugh, which she loved, but she never really saw anything long-term happening between them, especially with co-parenting being such a new thing for her right now. She’s focusing on the growth of her business and her kids. A serious relationship was never top of mind, at least for right now.”
Cavallari and Dye were first linked in October 2020 after being spotted together in Chicago. They later hooked up in Nashville in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. At the time, an insider told E! News that the two celebs were “casually dating.”
The “split’ comes after another source told People that Cavallari considered herself “single” the whole time she was dating Dye.
“She’s having fun and enjoying dating,” the source said, adding that the relationship was “not exclusive and he’s not her boyfriend.”
