Fans have been wondering if their fave Laguna Beach alum Kristin Cavallari is dating Jeff Dye ever since TMZ posted a video of the pair kissing in Chicago on Oct. 11. But things are apparently pretty casual between the two. “Their relationship is very easygoing, and Kristin is not thinking long-term right now and isn’t trying to get serious right away," a source reportedly explained to Us Weekly on Oct. 14. "She has three children and knows it will have to be a slow process.”
That said, the two are apparently legit an item. “Kristin and Jeff are totally a thing,” the same source reportedly shared with Us Weekly. “She loves to laugh and Jeff is obviously so funny and playful. He is making her life lighter through this transition and deterring her away from feeling upset. Jeff has helped put her in a good headspace and he is stoked on her and thinks she’s so beautiful and sexy.” (Elite Daily reached out to reps for both Dye and Cavallari for comment, but did not hear back in time for publication.)
Not everybody is "stoked." On Oct. 15, a source reportedly claimed to Us Weekly that Cavallari's ex-husband, Jay Cutler, "is not happy" to see her potentially "moving on." (Elite Daily reached out to Cutler's rep for comment on this claim and did not hear back in time for publication.)
While there's no real intel on when Cavallari and Dye's rumored romance began, Us Weekly reports Dye apparently "has been liking Cavallari’s Instagram posts since July." On Aug. 20, the comedian stepped it up from reportedly just liking her photos and actually commented on a post she put up promoting Dry Farm Wine. Alongside a whiskey glass emoji, he wrote, "wine??? You need some whiskey."
Per Us Weekly, Cavallari has apparently "been liking Dye’s social media posts since the beginning of October."
This is Cavallari's first rumored romance since her split from Cutler, to whom she was married for over 10 years. Excited for her!
