UPDATE (4/29/21, 7:18 p.m. ET): Jana Kramer and Michael “Mike” Caussin obtained a temporary restraining order against one another on April 22. This prevents the exes from making “disparaging remarks” in front of their kids or employers, and from relocating the kids outside Tennessee (where they live) or “more than 50 miles from the marital home” without the court’s permission, according to a document of the restraining order that HollywoodLife reviewed.
ORIGINAL: Jana Kramer, 37, is accusing Michael “Mike” Caussin, 34, of being unfaithful again. The country music singer listed “adultery,” “inappropriate marital conduct,” and “irreconcilable differences” as being the reasons she is separating from the former NFL player, according to her divorce filing from April 21 that HollywoodLife obtained. Jana also listed April 20 as the day she and Mike separated — this was one day before the One Tree Hill alum broke the divorce news herself in an emotional Instagram message.
Amid this separation, Jana and Mike have reportedly “entered a post nuptial agreement,” per the divorce filing. However, Jana stated that she believes she is the “fit and proper person” to have custody of their kids Jolie Rae, 5, and Jace Joseph, 2, and wants “specific parenting time allotted” to Mike in the court documents. Jana is also requesting that she should be “awarded” alimony and legal fees.
HollywoodLife has reached out to Jana and Mike’s reps for comment. This new report arrives after Jana declared that she has “fought,” “loved hard” and “forgiven,” but now has “nothing else to give” while announcing her split to the world on April 21. Jana and Mike infamously had a very turbulent relationship plagued by cheating scandals after they first began dating in Aug. 2014.One month after their relationship began, Jana accused Mike of cheating on her. While they eventually reunited and even tied the knot in May of 2015, the couple announced that they were separating again in Aug. 2016. Soon after, a report emerged claiming that Mike had been unfaithful, and Jana said there “were multiple affairs” while speaking EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife on our podcast in Oct. 2020.
Mike began seeking treatment for sex addiction in 2016; after putting this work in rehab, the retired football player reunited with Jana once again and they renewed their vows in Dec. 2017. They even documented the hurdles they faced in their book called The Good Fight which was released in Sept. 2020.

While Jana and Mike initially worked to overcome the cheating scandal, Jana admitted to HollywoodLife that “it’s one of those things where I can’t be like, just because I forgive you doesn’t mean that there’s still not pain.” However, she added that “the weight isn’t as heavy and [they] don’t talk about it every day,” and that it “has become [their] story.”
