Hartley cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the divorce authority, claiming that he and Chrishell had been separated since July 8, 2019, despite the couple being seen together several times after the specific date.
In its reply, Stause entered the ‘date of separation’ as 22 November 2019, which was contrary to the July separation cited by Hartley.
On her Netflix reality series, actress Days of Our Lives claimed that Justin informed her of his intention to divorce via text message, just 45 minutes before the heartbreaking news was announced.
‘I found out he was texting[ed] me that we were filed. Forty-five minutes later, the world knew, ”Chrishell said in the third season of Selling Sunset.

She went on to stress that ‘forty-five minutes’ was not enough time to prepare for attacks on questions they had to receive from their common fans.
‘Because of the crazy way this went down, people want answers and I want answers. I know people say we were only married for two years, but it’s like we were together for six years, ‘she explained passionately.
She also referred to Justin’s divorce filing as an ‘impulsive’ decision and that he would often use the same ‘I’m out’ approach during matches they had previously had.

‘In a fight it is [Justin’s] go to, you know? ‘ she said. ‘Like, “I’m out, I’m out.” I hate that kind of impulsive thing, but I always just thought, you know, it’s just a problem we’re working through. If this is really what you want, there are better ways to go about it [it].
‘I talked to him right after because I thought it must be a joke, but that was a bit of the end of communication.’

‘Chrishell is really ready to just settle down and be a wife and home mom and was hoping to start a family relatively soon,’ the source told the outlet. ‘Justin wants it, but also does not think it should happen in the near future and is at a point in his career where he will really be able to explore all the possibilities that come his way.
‘He’s reached a new level of fame thanks to the show and he does not want to close many doors right now and that is not the path Chrishell wants to take. She thought babies would happen shortly after they got married, but it just didn’t work out. ‘
