  • Justin Hartley filed for divorce in November 2019, leaving Chrishell Stause "blindsided".

Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause was left heartbroken when her then-husband Justin Hartley filed for divorce out of the blue last November. Just over six months later, Justin was linked to his former The Young and The Restless co-star Sofia Pernas, and the pair made things Instagram official in August.

Sofia and Justin starred together on the soap from June 2015 until May 2016. Reportedly, Sofia and Chrishell met on that same show in 2016 where they became friends, while Chrishell and Justin also first met on the show before they started dating.

Addressing her ex moving on in a new interview, Chrishell admitted it was "painful" to see. Speaking to People, she added, "I feel like anybody would be heartbroken to see how quickly or easily you are replaced; of course that’s going to sting."

However, the real estate agent is now more than ready to put the split behind her and move on. "It’s been almost a year, so I'm excited to get back out there. I’m a hopeless romantic, so I think it can still happen. It’s 2020, maybe you could meet your person through an Instagram DM. I don’t know. Crazier things have happened!"

Justin filed for divorce in late November 2019, citing "irreconcilable differences". Documents reportedly listed July 8, 2019, as the date of their separation, but the pair had been publicly attending events together until November - around the time the third series of Selling Sunset was filming.

After the scenes aired on the third season of the Netflix show, a source close to Justin claimed the This Is Us actor was reportedly "irritated" by the show's portrayal of the split, and said there is more to the story.

The source told Us Weekly, "He’s irritated that she’s airing their private information publicly and knows there is more to the story than is being told. His close friends and family know what really happened, as does Chrishell, so ultimately it’s her choice of what is put out there."

They added, "Justin is in a good place. [He] wants to just move on."

It looks like they're both
