Jana Kramer asks 'can't a girl go on a date?' after fans slam her for 'moving too fast' with Graham Bunn after divorce

JANA Kramer shut down fans telling her she’s moving on too fast after her divorce, asking, “Can’t a girl go on a date?”

The 37-year-old singer was spotted holding hands with The Bachelorette's Graham Bunn just weeks after her divorce from her cheating ex, Mike Caussin.

On Jana’s new Whine Down podcast episode, she set the record straight on her relationship with Graham, 42, after previously admitting they’re in an “entanglement.”

Earlier this month, Jana and Graham were spotted getting handsy with each other during a dinner date, seeming more comfortable and serious than just "an entanglement," as she'd said on Daily Pop.

The One Tree Hill actress admitted on her podcast that she didn't really know what that word meant and should've "taken a beat" before she said anything.

Though she maintained that the two aren't serious, she slammed the notion that she can't have some fun simply because she just split from her husband.

Jana revealed she and Graham "are friends" and have "known of [each other] for seven years as he's interviewed her as a country radio DJ.

She insisted she didn't even know he was on The Bachelorette before she got to know him as the DJ and has actually been interviewed by him while she was pregnant with her daughter Jolie, 5.

He was "always so sweet, so kind," and Jana said that continued when he found out she was going through a divorce, which is when they started to become much friendlier.

The Dancing with the Stars alum explained: "He had reached out to me and sent me a very– he’s a big Christian and sent me this really nice passages and messages from the bible.

"It was just very kind and thoughtful. And so we became friend."

As she went through what their relationship is currently like, Jana admitted that it's been "hard" because while she knows she "needs time heal and grieve and be alone," she also enjoys being with him.

"It’s also one of those things where I’m like, ‘Man, can’t a girl go on a date and have fun, too?’ she asked listeners.

The mother-of-two continued: "But he is sweet, but right now he knows, and I know, that I just need to be alone. I need to go through what I’m going through, and I need to do that alone."

In late April, Jana took to Instagram to announce she's splitting from Mike, 34, after six years of marriage.

Jana filed for divorce from football player Mike Caussin for "inappropriate marital conduct, irreconcilable differences, and adultery," as was listed in her filing.

Following their divorce, Jana was granted primary custody of their two kids and she's been forced to pay child support to her ex as she makes 20 times more than he does.

Following a tumultuous marriage, Jana, who treated herself to a boob around the time of her split, said it's been a hard battle between knowing she needs time for herself and wanting to be part of a healthy relationship.

She said on her podcast: "Yeah, I have been unhappy for so many years, and I’ve just been fighting it, so don’t I deserve to go out and have fun and be treated nice and kind?

"I know that I do deserve that, but that’s in time. Because right now I just really need to focus on my kids, I need to focus on myself, I need to focus on my healing."

She admitted that she still misses her ex and what they had together but knows she has "to be strong."

As she's coping with the end of her marriage and the changes that come with that to her family and romantic life, Jana said it's been difficult to read harsh notes from fans.

“It’s hard to see comments because people are like, ‘Oh my God, she’s moving on like JLo,’ the Lifetime movie star said, referencing Jennifer Lopez moving on from Alex Rodriguez with ex Ben Affleck.

"And it’s like, look, we all cope in different ways, but you don’t know the behind-the-scenes,” she added.
