Everything You May Have Forgotten About Chrishell Stause and Justin Hartley's Relationship
Justin Hartley filed for divorce from Chrishell Stause after two years of marriage back in November, and now their split is front and center on season three of Netflix's Selling Sunset. Though the details around their separation are still pretty hazy, we were able to get some answers when the series dropped on Aug. 7.
So far, we know that Justin cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their divorce and that he noted July 2019 as the date of separation. He also informed Chrishell of his divorce filing via text, and to be honest, she deserved better. The This Is Us actor has yet to publicly comment on the separation, and he has since moved on with soap star Sofia Pernas. Meanwhile, Chrishell currently appears to be single, but her Instagram DMs have apparently been lit.
