Jana Kramer revealed this week that her ex-husband, Mike Caussin, cheated on her with over 13 different women during their nearly six-year marriage.
“That has to be really painful,” “Red Table Talk” co-host Jada Pinkett Smith expressed empathy in a preview clip of Wednesday’s Facebook Watch show on Tuesday.
“I know we’re both in better situations,” the country star told the co-hosts through tears, “But I think about this year, my kids won’t wake up at my house Christmas Day. That one’s gonna hurt.”
The couple, who have two children, Jolie, 6, and Jace, 3, divorced last year after marrying in 2015.
She continued, “That’s when I get like, ‘That’s not fair. You took away my dream too of what I wanted for my family. That’s not fair.'”
Last Thanksgiving, she wrote on Instagram, “My heart hurts not being with [her children] today and I have a feeling whether it’s the first holiday apart or the 30th there will always be an ache in the heart.”
She and Caussin, a former NFL player, divorced a year after their wedding due to infidelity issues, and the ex-tight end sought treatment for sex addiction.
“For me, I realized a lot of things throughout my life that sex and sexual acting out was my addictive behavior, and that’s where I went to hide my feelings, to run away from reality and that was my drug,” Caussin said in 2019.
In 2017, the couple renewed their vows, and in 2020, they co-wrote “The Good Fight: Wanting to Leave, Choosing to Stay, and the Powerful Practice of Loving Faithfully.”
In April 2021, Kramer wrote on Instagram, “’ It’s time.’ As I try to make sense of a reality that I never wanted to believe could be possible again, those words have now become a reality. I’ve fought y’all. I’ve loved hard. I’ve forgiven. I’ve put the work in. I’ve given everything I have, and now I have nothing else to give. ‘It’s time.'”
She added, “Please know that I still believe wholeheartedly in marriage, love, and rebuilding. I just can’t fight any longer. It’s time to heal. Thank you for all the love, heart, and support, in many ways you have fought on this journey alongside me, and for that I am grateful.”
