“I’ve always wanted to have a family, to be married,” the singer admitted to Us Weekly in 2015. “And I wanted those things so badly that I’ve forced things before.”
After calling off a seven-¬month engagement in August 2013, the “I Got the Boy” singer realized she needed to take a break from romance.
“For the first time in my life,” she continued, “I was happy being alone.”
And then she met NFL tight end ¬Michael Caussin. When the twosome connected in June 2014, the twice-divorced Kramer was convinced her unlucky-in-love streak was over.
“I was in such a good, healthy place that everything just fell into place — it was easy,” raved Kramer 11 days before their May 2015 wedding. “He’s a great listener, we communicate really well together and we have so much fun. It just works.”
Or so she thought. As Kramer was fulfilling her fantasy — baby Jolie arrived January 31 — the former Washington Redskins pro, 29, was betraying the woman he once called “my partner in crime.” A source close to Kramer reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly,
“Mike cheated on her multiple times with multiple women.”
Though the ACM Award winner, 32, had her suspicions — the two even split up after he strayed in 2014 — she was hesitant to leave the father of her child. But when a friend approached her this summer and confessed that she believed a paid escort she knew was sleeping with Caussin, Kramer realized she could no longer ignore the red flags. She announced their separation in August and weeks later hinted that the athlete’s wandering eye was to blame, posting an Instagram clip of herself singing Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats.”
