The fans who thought something might be going on between Kristin Cavallari and Austen Kroll must have forgotten that she already has a man in her life — comedian, Jeff Dye! Kristin had a blast during a night in with some friends, including Austen, on Dec. 13, and it was documented all over Instagram. Of course, this led to some speculation that Kristin might be dating Austen, and Jeff seemingly had something to say about it. “He wishes,” Jeff tweeted on Dec. 15, along with a winking emoji.
He wishes. 😉

Additionally, Austen’s comment on one of Kristin’s recent Instagram pics also had fans buzzing about what might be going on between the pair. “See you next week!” he wrote in the comments section of her bikini pic. “Keep breaking the Internet in the meantime.” Kristin appeared to respond to the dating rumors with a post on her own Instagram Story on Dec. 14. She shared a boomerang video of herself rolling her eyes with the caption, “I didn’t realize I wasn’t allowed to have FRIENDS that are guys.”
Kristin’s pal, hairstylist Justin Anderson, was the one who initially shared the pictures and videos of Kristin and Austen hanging out on Dec. 13, but it was all in good fun. “My apologies for the Instagram Lives last night,” he wrote afterward. “new rule: my phone should be locked up when I drink.”
Meanwhile, things seem to be going strong between Kristin and Jeff. The two were first photographed making out at a bar in Chicago back in October. At the time, things were very new between them. However, by the following month, HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY reported that things were getting more serious. “It’s the real deal, but Kristin is taking it slow,” our source admitted. “They’ve spent a lot of time together.”
Earlier this month, Kristin and Jeff solidified the fact that they’re a full-on couple during a vacation to Mexico. Photographs surfaced of the pair kissing on the beach. This is Kristin’s first relationship since her split from husband, Jay Cutler, earlier this year. She and Jay had been married since 2013 and have three kids (Camden, Jaxon and Saylor) together.
