Justin Hartley is a talented actor, but as with many Hollywood celebrities, the star’s personal life is more talked about than his professional accomplishments.
The former soap opera actor has gained fame thanks to the hit NBC show “This Is Us.”
But as Hartley’s success continued to grow, so did the reports about his love life.
The star is currently in the midst of his second divorce. Even though the divorce isn’t finalized, that hasn’t stopped Hartley from moving on.
The latest news making the rounds is that the actor has a new girlfriend.
In 2002, Hartley joined the cast of the NBC supernatural soap opera “Passions” as Fox Crane.
Hartley’s character was brought in as the new love interest for Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald, played by Lindsay Korman.
Sparks flew for the characters and their portrayers. Justin and Lindsay began dating in 2003.
By May 2004, the couple were married, and two months later in July, Lindsay gave birth to their daughter Isabella.
Justin and Lindsay were a popular couple with the soap opera community. Lindsay remained a lead actress on “Passions,” while Justin branched out into primetime.
However, much like their soap characters, Justin and Lindsay were destined to live happily ever after.
In May 2012, Lindsay filed for divorce after eight years of marriage.
After his marriage to Lindsay ended, Justin seemed ready to find love again.
In January 2014, he began dating actress Chrishell Stause.
Like Hartley, Stause was a soap opera actress best known for her roles on “All My Children” and “Days of Our Lives.”
After two years together, Justin and Chrishell became engaged in July 2016. A couple of months later “This Is Us” premiered and sent Justin into stardom.
A year after announcing their engagement, Justin and Chrishell married in October 2017.
Justin and Chrishell seemed like a happy couple. The two weren’t shy about sharing PDA on social media, and Chrishell was a proud wife as she accompanied her husband on the red carpet.
However, in November 2019, news broke that Hartley had filed for divorce from Stause.
Fans were still reeling from the announcement of Justin and Chrishelle’s divorce.
While Chrishelle was mending her broken heart, it looked like Justin wasted no time in getting back in the dating game.
Six months after filing for divorce, Justin was spotted with “Blood & Treasure” actress Sofia Pernas in May 2020. Paparazzi photos caught the pair sharing a kiss, leading to speculation that they were dating.
So far neither side has commented about the rumors, but Justin and Sofia have known each other for years.
The two first met back in 2015 when they were on the CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless.” Justin played Adam Newman, while Sofia portrayed Marisa Sierras.
Now, five years later the two are reportedly dating.
While Justin is moving on with his life, Chrishelle is still reeling from the shock of their divorce.
The “Selling Sunset” star has opened up about her split with Justin, and viewers will learn more on the upcoming season of the show.
One detail that Chrishelle has recently shared is that she learned about her divorce via a text message. Stause also said she thought it was a joke, but immediately realized it wasn’t.
This little detail has raised eyebrows about Justin’s character, and given Chrishelle more support in their divorce battle.
Fans are sure to learn more details about the couple’s split as Chrishelle continues to share her story.
