Co-parenting is no easy task — even when you’re a celebrity. Just two weeks after filing for divorce from husband Mike Caussin, the harsh reality of Jana Kramer’s new setup has been sinking in. Kramer discussed the tricky topic of divorce in an episode of her podcast “Whine Down,” opening up about the split for the first time on the show.
She admitted that the divorce was a tough pill to swallow, and she tried to make it work for the sake of her children, Jolie and Jace. “I didn’t want to break up my family. My whole thing was, like, I didn’t want this for the kids,” she said. Additionally, Kramer revealed that co-parenting would be incredibly tough on her, especially when her two kids go for their first overnight at their dad’s house.
“I’m gonna be destroyed. That’s not what I wanted. That’s not what I worked for. That’s not what I fought for,” she shared. “And it’s not f**king fair. And that makes me so angry. I worked too damn hard for it to end this way.” Kramer also shared that she had several conversations with her therapist leading up to the split and her therapist told her that Caussin was “taking [her] light away.”
Following the news of the divorce, it was reported that “[t]wo days after the pair called it quits, a temporary restraining order was issued by Tennessee court,” per Us Weekly. According to the outlet, it doesn’t allow the pair to talk about one another in a “disparaging” way in front of their kids.
