KRISTIN Cavallari and Jay Cutler have reportedly reached a temporary custody agreement that will involve their three kids splitting time between both parents.
The Sun exclusively revealed that Jay is “terrified” of Kristin which has created a “very tense” home environment at their Nashville house.
However, it appears the reality star will now move into a place of her own amid their mutual agreement.
Sources revealed to E! News: “They are now agreeing that Jay will allow Kristin to purchase the home she has been looking at since November of last year when they started having serious issues, which prompted her to start looking in the first place.”
“In exchange for that, they are agreeing to split the time with their children, one week on and one week off.
“They are having the kids stay in the home and Kristin will stay a week, then Jay will stay a week,” the source added.
The insider said when Kristin is moved into her new house, the kids will go back and fourth between the two homes every other week.
Kristin “should be able to close within a month” on her future abode, the source said.
The couple is hoping the new arrangement will alleviate tensions between them “since they aren’t having to deal with each other as much.”
“Things between Jay and Kristin will probably get better once she is settled,” the source claimed.
Earlier this week, The Sun exclusively revealed that the Laguna Beach alum claimed Jay has been “controlling and manipulative throughout their marriage.”
She said he agreed to her purchasing the home she found in Nashville, but allegedly “withheld” the funds when she “would not accept the unfavorable settlement Husband was proposing.”
Kristin then claimed on April 28 that Jay informed her he was “not agreeing to her purchasing the home unless she agreed to his parenting plan” and that he would “only release the funds” if she agreed.
The Very Cavallari star claimed her: “Husband is using the parties’ funds in an attempt to control wife and force her into accepting proposals which are not favorable to her.”
According to a friend of the couple, the arrangement has “created a very tense situation.”
“Jay may be a big dude who played in the NFL. But he is terrified of Kristin sometimes,” they added.
The source continued: “But it has been weird the past few weeks as Kristin spends three days with the kids in the house and then Jay spends three days with them.”

A source told People on Tuesday: “They didn’t want to get a divorce, because of the kids. Kristin has been very torn about it.
“When she realized that it just wasn’t possible for them to stay married, her focus was on keeping things amicable.”
The insider continued of the custody battle: “Kristin is strong and confident. She is also an amazing mom.
“If Jay wants to break their deal about keeping things amicable, she is not scared of fighting for what she wants for their kids,” the source added.
