Chrishell and Justin split in 2019

Justin and Chrishell took fans by surprise when it was announced that the father-of-one had filed for divorce in November 2019, citing "irreconcilable differences", after two years of marriage. Chrishell admitted on Selling Sunset that she had been "blindsided" by his decision, while speaking to her friend and co-star Mary in a hotel room.

"We had a fight that morning over the phone... we didn't talk things through, and before we had a chance to figure anything out, he filed," said Chrishell, in tears. "I found out because he texted me that we were filed. Forty-five minutes later, the world knew."

She added: "I talked to him right after [the text] because I thought that must be a joke, but that was the end of communication. What do you say after that?"
