Why Did ‘Selling Sunset’ Star Chrishell Stause file for Divorce?

Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause, stars of This is Us and Selling Sunset, divorced over two years ago after ending their four-year marriage. Details about their former “ship” and current relationships are still circulating as both celebrities appear frequently on the red carpet and television (and as there are brand-new Selling Sunset episodes to watch).

At the MTV Movie & TV Awards in May 2021, Justin made his red carpet debut alongside Sofia Pernas and shocked everyone by announcing his impending marriage. Fans observed rings on *that* finger, and as it turned out, they had secretly wed, according to People. Although the couple had been dating in the open for five months, few details were available about their wedding. 

Chrishell made her relationship with Australian singer G-Flip public in May 2022 during the Selling Sunset season 5 reunion. Things moved along quickly, and a year later the couple had a small ceremony to say “I do.” However, because not everything is captured by the cameras, here is what Chrishell and Justin have revealed about their separation:

Why did Justin Hartley file for divorce?

According to rumors, Justin gave “irreconcilable differences” as his justification for filing for divorce. The “This Is Us” star has also stated that they will split up on July 8, 2019. But according to reports, Justin Hartley’s ex-wife claimed that she was troubled when he indicated that their divorce was finalized in July 2019. Because they remained together until November 22, 2019, this is true.

Both Hartley and Stause have remained quiet on social media about the divorce. But, recently Stause gave fans a peek into her relationship during the Season 2 finale preview of her Netflix show Selling Sunshine.

Why the couple ended their relationship?

Unknown factors may have contributed to Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause’s divorce. However, he specifically mentions a separation date of July 8, 2019, which is a bit weird. This is because the couple appeared romantically involved with one another almost a week before the This is Us star filed for divorce.

For several months, the couple was seen out and about. To avoid having to pay her spousal support, Justin Hartley’s ex-wife claims to people close to her that Hartley lied about the time of their separation.

Chrishell Stause is requesting spousal support as part of the settlement, though. She asks him to pay her legal expenses. According to reports, the actor turned down this request.

Recently, she spoke candidly with ET Canada about how challenging it was to go through her divorce while filming the show. She reportedly told the magazine, “Yes, the cameras were there, but this is still new to me and I am trying to get used to such an uncomfortable thing.” My personal life kind of exploded while I still had a month of filming left.

“They were there and some of it is going to be shown and I’m dreading that.”
