Jana Kramer recalled the time she found a photo of a topless woman on husband Mike Caussin’s phone. The couple has been vocal regarding their marital problems that stem from his cheating, as well as his alleged sex addiction.
On their podcast, Whine Down, the couple had a candid and raw conversation as they rehashed a recent fight. He received a photo from a woman who was not wearing a top via text message. Caussin immediately deleted the picture, choosing to keep it from his wife.
Kramer later discovered it when she went through his Apple Watch, triggering a slew of trust issues she has with her husband.
“When I looked, I was like Goddamnit. I saw it, and my heart just fell. It’s here. It’s happened again. I’m such a f$%king idiot, and I immediately called my best friend, and I was just shaking crying outside, and then I called the number, and then I texted it, and it was like, ‘Sorry hun, can’t talk on the phone. Do you want me to come over?’ and I was just like, ‘You texted my husband. I would love to know your correspondence. Please, from one woman to another,” the One Tree Hill alum revealed.
More messages led Kramer to believe that perhaps it wasn’t even from a real person. The issue quickly became the fact Caussin without telling her.
“The deleting things—whether it was a fluke text—sends me right back to him deleting all the messages that he did with his affairs,” she shared. “It’s just heavy. My anxiety level is through the roof,” she admitted.
Caussin did apologize to his wife on air. He also explained his choice to delete the message.

Today is a tough one. Our podcast episode that aired this morning was one we almost didn’t let air at all. Up until a day ago mike and I wanted to pull the episode completely and just not have an episode for today because it was that heavy for us. Honestly the day we recorded I wanted nothing to do with “work”. I wanted to text our producer and make up some excuse why we couldn’t record. The thing though is because Mike and I work together the show must go on and I realize we can’t just cancel things because we are in a bad spot. So instead I put my big girl pants on and started to record with mike after a very long and intense 24hours of not talking to each other. In the beginning of the ep I truly tried to put the acting chops on and play cool but it’s evident as the episode went on that didn’t happen. We decided to open the door into what happened and woah did we let it all out. Those of you may not understand the trauma and the pain around what we talked about and openly shared so please be nice and know we ended up keeping the episode because we hope it can help. See that’s the thing. None of this has been easy with our shares but we just hope along the way we are able to help others out there not feel so alone. Reality is no matter what you’ve been through marriage can be a difficult walk especially with added triggers and pain…but know this, ur not alone in that walk and we are here rooting y’all on. Be kind to us as honestly we are embarrassed by how fresh and raw this episode was. Also. Because the podcast didn’t end great…today we are good, and have grown stronger from it. See that’s the thing, if you’re both willing to fight you can get stronger on the other side. Love y’all and really appreciate the support. #bekindpls
“I see it, and I know the right thing to do is to go get Jana, pull her aside, and say, ‘Hey. I just received this. I don’t know what the hell it is, but I just need you to know. I was terrified to do so, Jana and I have had a really good run recently like not a lot of past stuff coming up, we’ve been handling situations pretty well, handling triggers pretty well, talking things out, it really felt like we were really building a lot of forward momentum,” he explained.
Jana Kramer admitted before ending the podcast, she and husband Mike Caussin went to therapy following the incident. The podcast conversation was tense, but she used Instagram to assure fans the couple is doing much better now. Therapy always helps.
