The divorce between This Is Us actor Justin Hartley and Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause continues to get messier and messier. The final few episodes of the latest season of Selling Sunset reveal that Hartley blindsided Stause with his divorce filling, leading to tons of speculation over whether or not he had been unfaithful.
A source told E! News that any rumors of Hartley’s cheating were “100% false.”
“Cheating was never in the cards and never happened on either side.”
However, the abruptness of the split and Hartley’s almost immediate relationship with his former Young and the Restless co-star Sofia Pernas, has caused some to speculate.
A second source told E! News that the divorce should not have been as much of a surprise to Stause.
“Chrishell knew they were having problems in their marriage. They were fighting for months before Justin filed, but she didn’t think he would actually end their marriage. They always brushed their problems under the rug.”
On Selling Sunset, Stause explained that Hartley texted her that he had filed for divorce shortly before the news went public.
“I found out because he texted me that we were filed. 45 minutes later, the world knew. In a fight, like that’s his go-to. Like, ‘I’m out, I’m out,'” she went on. “I hate that kind of impulsive stuff, but I always just thought: ‘That’s an issue, we’ll work through it.’ If [divorce is] really what you wanted, there are better ways to go about it.”
According to the source at E! news, “she speculates a lot about what truly happened between them” and is struggling to find closure after the demise of their two year marriage.
“Chrishell is heartbroken that he has moved on so quickly. It doesn’t do her any good to dwell on the possibilities of Justin cheating, and is trying to move on.”
While they are sticking to the “no one cheated” line, Stause did like some tweets that seemed to imply that Hartley was unfaithful. One read:
“@justinhartley filmed a movie in Canada at the same time his new gf @SofiaPernas was filming the summer before they split. The timing seems like he probably cheated on @Chrishell7 and took a coward’s way out to avoid spousal support and gaslight her”
With the recent Netflix release of Selling Sunset, people are more interested in this split than ever, so be sure to keep an eye out for more gossip about these two.
