At the end of last month, Justin Hartley, a star of This Is Us, surprised his family and friends by demanding the divorce of his wife Chrishell Stause, a saleswoman from Sunset, just a week after the couple went to a evening at the Golden Globes be happy and in love. Now, the split has taken an even stranger turn after Stause filed his answer.
When Hartley applied for a divorce, he cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split and indicated the date of the separation on July 8, 2019. The actor, aged 42, also explained that he did not want to pay support. or the legal fees of Stause. However, the couple had been seen together many times since then and they had both posted pretty nice talk about each other on social media.
In his response, Stause indicated that the separation date was November 22, 2019, the same day that Hartley filed for divorce. She also claimed support from Hartley and asked her to pay for her legal fees.
Since Hartley filed her complaint, Stause has removed the words “wife” and “mother-in-law” from her Instagram bio – Hartley shares a 15-year-old girl with her first wife, Lindsay Korman. And she also posted a quote from author Nishan Panwar.
“It’s hard to watch people change right in front of you. But it’s even harder to remember who they were, “we read.
In addition to the Golden Globes, Hartley and Stause also held a screening night on November 16 for her former co-star Young and the Restless, Melissa Claire Egan, who also happens to be Stause’s best friend. Egan even posted a group photo of the evening and congratulated Hartley and Stause.
“SO Lucky for these friends and lucky for my besties @chrishellhartley & @justinhartley, hosting a screening party for” Holiday for Heroes “tonight. Best friends in the world. If you missed it, it will be broadcast again, check it! @hallmarkmovie, “writes Egan in the caption.
According to Us Weeekly, the couple also attended a Los Angeles Kings hockey game together, as well as a recording of the Ellen DeGeneres Show. It goes without saying that friends and family were caught off guard by the split.
“Justin and Chrishell’s relatives are completely shocked by Justin’s filing of their divorce petition. The couple has always been amazing, no sign of slippage, “said one insider.
The last time Justin Hartley wrote about Chrishell Stause on Instagram was July 21st when he wished a happy birthday to the “little human gem”.
