Perhaps his lawyer was concerned that your husband may reveal confidential attorney-client communications to you. You should tell your husband that cutting off communications between the two of you will prevent you and your husband from resolving issues in your divorce case, likely increasing the cost of the divorce, to your husband's attorney's economic benefit. Keep things peaceful and friendly between you and your husband, and do what you can to try to work out a fair resolution with him. Since your husband is represented by counsel, you should also be represented by counsel, who can advise and steer you appropriately.

This answer does not create an attorney-client relationship.
He may be repeating what he was told.
It may also be he is simply trying to intimidate you.
Inform your attorney of this latest gambit and follow his/her advice regarding the "silent treatment."

Does he suffer mental illness? Why would a friendly divorce go like that?

When it becomes clear to me that my client has a big mouth, and the other party is smarter or better at chiseling information out of my client or better at manipulating my client, I then instruct my client not to talk with the other spouse. Otherwise, I advise my clients that it can be good for them to talk with their spouses in an attempt to resolve issues and thus reduce my time on the case, and thus reduce the overall attorney's fees. Most of my clients like the theory of what I just explained, but in actual practice cannot do it, because most litigants who come to attorneys in a divorce do so because the emotions are way too caustic and they just can't talk anything through. That is why they went to the trouble of hiring an expensive attorney in the first place.
