Sophia Bush's relationship with professional soccer star Ashlyn Harris has been making headlines since mid October, coming to light just two months after Bush filed for divorce from husband Grant Hughes and one month after Harris split from athlete wife Ali Krieger.

Also making news (and certainly not for the first time!) is Bush's past romance with One Tree Hill star Chad Michael Murray, which ended nearly 20 years ago. Given the sudden interest in Sophia Bush's dating life, here's everything to know about it, including how many times she's been married and which costars she's been linked to.

Is Sophia Bush still married?

Bush is in the process of divorcing her second husband, Grant Hughes, to whom she's been married for less than a year. A representative for Hughes told People that he bears no ill will toward his ex-wife. "Grant will always want the best for Sophia, and is supportive of all that makes her happy and fulfilled," the rep said.

Bush was also married to OTH costar Chad Michael Murray from 2005 to 2006.

Who is Sophia Bush's husband Grant Hughes?

Hughes is the co-founder of FocusMotion Health. According to its website, the company "creates data-driven orthopedic recovery solutions to automatically assess and monitor pre- and post-operative patients, building the deep learning and diagnostic AI that will transform human recovery." Kobe Bryant invested in the business in 2016.

Who is Sophia Bush dating now?

Bush is dating professional soccer player Ashlyn Harris, who retired from the sport at the end of the 2022 season and announced her divorce from fellow soccer star Ali Krieger in September of this year.

How did Sophia Bush and Ashlyn Harris meet?

A source close to the new couple told People that they have been friends for a long time. "After being friends for years, and running in the same social circles, Sophia and Ashlyn went out on their first dinner date a couple of weeks ago," the source said.

Did Ashlyn Harris cheat with Sophia Bush?

That's the rumor, although neither Harris nor Krieger, who share two children, have commented on it directly. A source told People that their divorce began "months ago" and "they have been living apart since the summer." But Krieger did post a picture of herself to Instagram with the caption "Preparing for playoffs while in my Beyoncé lemonade era." Interestingly, Lemonade references the 2016 album on which Beyoncé addresses husband Jay-Z's infidelity.

How many times has Sophia Bush been married?

Bush has been married twice—first to costar Chad Michael Murray, then to entrepreneur Grant Hughes.

Why did Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray get an annulment?

Bush and Murray met on set in 2003, got engaged by May 2004 and were married in April 2005. However, the union didn’t last long. They separated in September 2005, after just five months of marriage, and Bush filed for annulment the following February. While speaking to Michael Rosenbaum for the "Inside of You" podcast, Bush said she was "a very naïve 21-year-old kid" and that contributed to the breakup.

What did Erin Foster say about Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray?

During a recent episode of The World’s First Podcast, which she hosts with her sister Sara Foster, Erin Foster—who dated One Tree Hill star Chad Michael Murray just before he started seeing his co-star, Sophia—claimed that the two CW stars had an affair prior to her relationship with Murray coming to an end. “I’ve moved on though,” she continued jokingly. “I’m over it. I mean, just barely. Just barely over it.”

In response, Bush's OTR costar Hilarie Burton wrote in an Instagram Story, "Ooof. Cringe. I got off my red eye flight home and multiple people had sent me this headline. As the person who had a front row seat then? This wasn’t it."

"We were all told you’d broken up which is why our guy was perusing [SIC] her," she continued. "Now this is being spun to make my sister look like a brazen harlot. And if she’s anyone’s harlot, it’s mine!"

Bush and Foster co-starred in the horror movie Stay Alive and dated from 2006 to 2007. A year after their split, Bush told Us Weekly, "We weren’t ready to get married, but it definitely doesn’t mean we don’t care about each other."

Bush and Lafferty also co-starred on One Tree Hill. The two began dating in 2008 after she and Foster broke up. The pair hadn't publicly revealed their relationship status when their co-star (and Bush's ex-husband) Murray told a local CW affiliate of the situation, "It’s one of those things where you grow up a lot faster. You’re put in a situation where you’re gonna deal with things right in your face."

Lafferty and Bush broke up in 2009.

Bush and Nichols had an on-again, off-again relationship before he joined the cast of One Tree Hill in 2010, apparently in a bid to prove to her that he was serious about their relationship.

In May 2010, Bush told E! News, "We had so many years of history prior to him coming to work on the show and I think someone taking a job and moving their life across the country to show you how much they care is pretty much the most romantic gesture that a person could make."

Things didn't work out for the pair, and they ended up breaking up in 2012.

Bush and Fredinburg were first linked in 2013, and their relationship ended the following year. Tragically, Fredinburg was killed in an avalanche in Nepal in 2015. Bush honored his life on what would have been his 34th birthday in September of that year.

On Instagram she wrote in part, "I still don't know what the words are. Magic. Friendship. Memories. Consciousness. Dimensions. Infinite. Break. Dance. Live. Believe. Do. So many. None are the one. They're puzzle pieces but not the whole picture. What I do know is that you are missed. That you are still here. That you changed us, inspired us, pushed us, and guided us. What I do know is that I saw you this weekend, deep in the desert, many times."
