It’s been a rough few weeks for actress-turned-country singer Jana Kramer as her separation from her husband of 15 months, Michael Caussin, became a hot topic for tabloids. Shortly after their split went public, it was revealed that Jana would be competing on Season 23 of Dancing with the Stars.
In the midst of juggling an intense tour schedule, competing on DWTS, nursing a rib injury and taking care of her 7-month old daughter, Kramer has also had to deal with the emotional distress caused by the separation from her husband.
According to Us Weekly, Caussin checked into a rehab center to deal with sex addiction shortly after his separation from Kramer. The country singer hasn’t specifically addressed the reasons why she split from Caussin, but referred to some of the latest tabloid reports in a video diary recorded during last week’s DWTS rehearsals saying that the news is “embarrassing.”
In an interview following Monday’s episode of Dancing with the Stars, Kramer was in great spirits after beating Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds in a head-to-head dance off where Kramer won immunity for the week. But, the singer’s mood instantly changed when the reporter asked her about how she manages to stay focused with all the “buzz” revolving around her right now.
“It’s hard, but you know… I have one… Jolie is that,” Jana said tearfully.
