Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari are being sued in Tennessee for an alleged dog attack. According to WKRN, the former NFL quarterback and reality TV star are being sued by Nathan Beam of Jackson county after allegedly being bit by one of their German Shepherd dogs in June of 2020. The incident happened at a home in Franklin, Tennessee.
The lawsuit states that Beam, a cable and satellite installer, was invited to the property to perform a new install. Neither Cutler nor Cavallari was at the home at the time of the alleged incident, according to Beam. However, he said their two German Shepherd dogs were roaming the property, which is owned by Next Chapter, LLC, a Davidson County limited liability company. Once the installation was complete, Beam alleges the former couple's German Shepherd, Kona was blocking the driver's side door of his truck.
Beam then said the dog bit him when he went to pick something up off the ground. The dog allegedly bit Beam's left thumb and fingernail and "would not let go for several seconds." The filing states that Cavallari's personal assistant was at the home at the time, and Beam claims the assistant handed him a paper towel and told him to leave the property immediately. Beam is suing for damages, claiming he has suffered physical pain and mental suffering due to the incident. Here's a look at what social media has to say about the lawsuit.

"Quit trying to pet Dogs," one person responded to this tweet. As the lawsuit states, Beam was not trying to put the dog. He was looking to leave the home but one of the dogs was allegedly blocking his truck.prevnext

"This is a standard dog bite lawsuit," a person on Facebook wrote. "He will win. The owners will pay little out of pocket as insurance will cover damages. Possible workers comp claim depending on the state laws and owners compliance with company rules. Hope he does well and heals well. Nothing will happen to the dogs unless there are multiple instances. Life will go on."prevnext

"Can’t blame the dog for being dangerous, you blame the owner!" another Facebook user wrote. "And you should never let your dog roam around while someone is out doing work at your home, regardless what type of work. If that person has never been around your dog, you keep your dog away from this person!!"prev
