Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause reveals her husband informed her of divorce via text

Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause has confirmed rumours that she is dating her co-star and boss, Jason Oppenheim.

Stause made the revelation on Instagram today (28 July) that she is in a relationship with Oppenheim, who runs the real-estate company Oppenheim Group with his twin brother, Brett.

The pair were pictured on holiday in Capri together with a number of the Selling Sunset crew.

Brett, who also stars on the series, commented on her post, writing: “Love you Chrishell. Thank you for making my brother happy.”

The couple’s other co-star, Mary Fitzgerald, also commented, writing: “Nothing makes me more excited than to see two of my closest friends together and making each other so happy!”

Earlier this year, Stause split from Dancing With the Stars’ Keo Motsepe.

Previously, Stause opened up about learning her estranged husband, This Is Us actor Justin Hartley, had filed for divorce over text, which was documented in the third series.

“I found out because he text[ed] me that we were filed,” Stause said of the moment. “45 minutes later, the world knew.”

Stause said her decision to share the news about Oppenheim was inspired by “the JLo effect” in a nod to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s rekindled romance, which they recently made Instagram official.

Lopez and Affleck’s original romance dates back to 2002. The couple were engaged in November of that year, the same month Affleck appeared in the famous video for Lopez’s hit song “Jenny From the Block”. They announced in January 2004 that they had called off their engagement.

Rumours that the pair had reunited surfaced in May this year – a development apparently confirmed by Lopez’s recent Instagram post.
