Jay Cutler does a mediocre job calling the shots on the football field. Off the gridiron, however, he was incredibly good at controlling Kristin Cavallari.

The Bears quarterback smothering the former Hills star was one of the things that caused their relationship to unravel, according to a new report.

A friend of Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler, who knew the couple and spent time with them socially, says he made things difficult for his fiancee.

The two called off their engagement this weekend.

Says the source of the now-former couple:

“Jay Cutler was beyond controlling and didn’t really like Kristin to go out,” the friend says. “When she did go out, he would call all the time, demanding to know exactly where she was going and who she was with.”

“He always made her choose between being with him and being friends with a lot of her girlfriends. I’m not surprised it didn’t last.”

Cavallari and Cutler, 24 and 28 respectively, were first linked last summer. They had been planning a wedding for next spring, and Kristin is said to be “absolutely devastated” after the football star broke up with her.
