Justin Hartley and Chrishell Hartley: The Way They Were


Kekenapep –

This is now. Justin Hartley has filed from divorce from wife Chrishell Hartley after two years of marriage.

According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, the This Is Us star, 42, submitted the papers on November 22.

Justin and Chrishell, 38, married in October 2017 after dating for four years. The Passions alum popped the question in July 2016 and Chrishell opened up to Us about waiting to expand their family in May.

“We don’t know [when] yet,” she said at the time. “I have a stepdaughter (Justin has a daughter), so we’ve got our hands full with high school.”

The couple’s divorce case is listed as a “dissolution without minor children.”

The couple confirmed their romance in January 2014. They first met when Chrishell was working with Justin’s ex-wife, Lindsay Hartley, on the set of All My Children. The two began dating years later.


The Future Hartleys

Justin popped the question in July 2016 after dating Chrishell for two years. The couple announced the news on social media with Chrishell sharing a picture of her engagement ring while lounging outside and tanning. “You guys think I need sunscreen?” she captioned the photo.

Wedded Bliss

The couple said, “I do,” on October 30, 2017, in front of friends and family in an outdoor wedding. Justin’s This Is Us costars Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz and Milo Ventimiglia were in attendance. His daughter from his first marriage, Isabella, 15, was part of the bridal party and shared in the couple’s special day.

Coffee King

In March, Justin told Us about his go-to daily activity that he loves to do for his wife. “I’m an early riser, so when I hear her coming down the stairs in the morning, I turn on the coffee maker for her and get espresso going,” he said. “She really loves that I do that.”


For the Love of Cheese

The 38-year-old actress admitted in March that her man knows the way to her heart … through cheese. After filming a movie in New Orleans, Chrishell flew to meet Justin in New York and when she arrived he had a cheese board waiting in their room. “If you know me, that is like my love language. … That’s the sixth on the love languages, if you didn’t know,” she told Us at the time. “So he had a cheese board waiting for me and a bottle of wine. And it was just so sweet and so nice, and just like one of those things.”


Nothing Like Kevin Pearson

Chrishell told Us in May that her husband is nothing like his This Is Us character … thank goodness. “Thank God because he wouldn’t be a very good husband,” she said. “There’s parts of Kevin that are good, but I don’t think I’d want to be married to him, you know? So luckily, Kevin gets all of his charm, but I get both. I also get the good husband’s side. So, I win!”

More Love to Come

On their one-year anniversary, Justin couldn’t help but gush about his wife. “The best day, the best friends and family, the best wife! Happy first anniversary to my @chrishellhartley!! Let’s do 300 million more!” he wrote on Instagram in October 2018.

Winner Winner

“Well #ThisIsUs didn’t take home the trophy but I am taking him home so looks like I am the big winner tonight!” Chrishell captioned a sweet photo with her man at the 2019 Emmys in September. “I now also win the cheesy caption award if there is an award for that-double winner! 😜😜 (Sorry guys, they serve alcohol here) 🤪😆🙌🏽💗.”

Calling it Quits

On November 22, Us confirmed that Justin had filed for divorce from Chrishell after two years of marriage. The NBC star cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split and listed July as their date of separation.


Social Media Activity

Stause shared a cryptic quote on Instagram in November 2019, days after her split from Hartley made headlines. “It’s hard to watch people change right in front of you. But it’s even harder remembering who they used to be,” the message read. She also updated her Twitter and Instagram bios with positive quotes.

This Is Contentious

While the Bad Moms Christmas actor listed their date of separation as July 8, 2019, the Selling Sunset star cited the date that Justin filed for divorce as their date of separation: November 22, 2019. According to the paperwork, Chrishell is seeking spousal support from and asking her estranged husband to pay for her attorney’s fees, but Justin does not believe he owes his wife of two years any money.

Looking On the Bright Side

Hartley opened up about appreciating life following the split while attending the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in January 2020. “We have hectic lives and everyone’s busy and rushing all over the place and trying to occupy space and time and get to the next thing and you have to slow down every once in a while and just kind of realize where you are, appreciate what you’ve done and reflect a little bit and be like, what’s going on here? And make sure you’re OK,” he told reporters. “Surround yourself with good people. That’s a good thing to do as well.”

Four months later, Stause exclusively told Us Weekly that she is trying to “focus on the positive side of things.” While promoting her new season of Selling Sunset, she told Us: “Transitions are hard … thankfully there is a lot to focus on right now.”


Still Emotional

Stause, however, got emotional on season 2 of her Netflix show. In a teaser, the Kentucky native could be shown crying over her split from the actor. She also got choked up while promoting the show in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in May 2020. “Where the show picks up, that was my life and unfortunately you are going to follow the journey of that — the good and the bad. When it gets to the bad, I am going to go under a rock and I am going to go off the grid.” She added: “I obviously really, truly love him and it’s unfortunate the way that everything happened and the timing of everything. I still had a month to plot shooting the show when this all went down. Hopefully we can get to a place where one day we will look back at this and laugh. I don’t know, hopefully. It’s very unfortunate and relationships are hard.”
