According to an insider, the couple had been dealing with marriage issues for quite some time.

"This isn't out of the blue. They've been trying to make it work for a while," the source told E! News.

Fans of the E! show will know that the couple didn't hold back for the cameras when it came to their relationship. Recently, the Uncommon James founder opened up about some of her struggles with her marriage.

"Jay has been great, yes. From the outside, things are so perfect and things are so great," she explained. "But actually, they're not. And that sucks. It sucks. That's the thing, though, with marriage... it's ups and downs."

She added, "But in two months we could be up here again... that's how we've always been, our whole relationship. It is what it is."

She expressed that there is "no such thing as a perfect relationship."

"Jay and I have problems. I've always been very vocal about that," she shared. "We have to work at our relationship, so hearing him say that we're perfect is kind of silly to me. We definitely have issues."

The insider pointed out that "cheating" was not a factor in their decision to split.

During season 3, Kristin revealed that she had a strained relationship with her best friend, Kelly Henderson, after cheating rumors swirled between her and Jay.

"When season two was airing, there was a lot of talk on social media about Jay and Kelly having an affair. Not for one second have I ever thought that it was true," Kristin said. "It wasn't the actual accusations of them having an affair that made me upset, it was how Kelly went about it."

The NFL star and Kelly both denied the affair allegations.
