Jeff Dye rages at his ex Kristin Cavallarirevealed the intimate details of his DUI arrest in October, insisting she only shared the story for clickbait.
The comedian appeared on The Smoochietown Podcast with Marco DelVecchio on Thursday and slammed Let's be honest podcast host for not only sharing the story on her podcast in the weeks after his arrest, but also for lying. For starters, Cavallari never mentioned Dye by name October 24 episode of her podcast (called “My First 72 Hours in LA You Couldn't Script”), but the timeline she shared on her podcast matches Dye's version.
Long story short, Cavallari, 36, went on her podcast to reveal Dye, 40, was arrested while they were on a coffee date in Burbank after he crashed his Tesla into a tree and left the scene. Officers arrived at the cafe and told Cavallari that he matched the description of the driver. Dye was arrested and taken into custody, leaving Cavallari shocked and confused as to exactly what happened.
Cavallari, who dated Dye after her divorce from former NFL star Jay Cutler, said she agreed to meet Dye at a coffee shop after he asked her out. Dye said on Smoochietown podcast that he wanted to see her to see if there was a chance of rekindling what they once had. But the day started rough. Dye confirmed Cavallari's side of the story – that he woke up late after a night of drinking with friends at his house. He said he was supposed to meet her at 9 a.m. at a coffee shop. On the way there, Dye said he was still feeling the effects of the previous night's alcohol consumption, but didn't think much of it. However, he lost control of his Tesla and crashed into a tree. In a panic, Dye took off on foot and walked about a mile to meet Cavallari.
“I knew as soon as I crashed I was like 'F**k. They're going to get me',” he said.
He added: “It was literally the worst day of my life.”
But the fact that she told the story on her podcast doesn't sit well with Dye, who is also furious that she shared photos of the car falling apart. Dye explained that the car looked the way it did because firefighters had to pry open the doors, which he said can't be opened after an accident because the car is basically a big computer.
“And that's the other delusional part about Kristin telling a story on her podcast for clicks, which she's screwing over,” Dye said. “It's not her story to tell. And also, she said this, she says, 'Well, that was my experience, too. That's why I shared it on the podcast.' Interesting because, you know, when we were dating, I had a billion experiences with you that I wasn't just going to share. I had experiences with you that I wasn't going to tell everyone. Those were my experiences too when you were fucking away with all those other people.” But anyway.”
“She posted the photos?!” DelVecchio asked in shock. “Why?!”
“Because he's a terrible person,” Dye replied. “She didn't care. She just wanted to tell the story on her podcast. It was very horrible.”
Dye said the Burbank coffee shop is one he visits almost every day. Upon his return from the ordeal, Dye said the barista allegedly told him, “You're going to have a lot of balls coming back here.”
“I don't think people realize how awful it made me feel,” Dye said. “I don't know if anyone will ever find out. Imagine the worst thing that's ever happened to you, and strangers are looking at you in a coffee shop.”
He added that having a personal experience that you're ashamed of and everyone talks about is something that haunted him.
“He's only talking about it because of her,” he added.
Dye said he has since stopped drinking alcohol and has now been sober for nearly two months.
“It was the best,” he said of his decision to quit drinking. “My life has been infinitely better since then.
