It was all good until it wasn’t. Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause has reportedly called it quits with Dancing With the Stars pro Keo Motsepe after just three months of dating, Page Six reported. Keo was the first relationship for Chrishell following her divorce from This Is Us star, Justin Hartley. While on Selling Sunset, Stause shared how blindsided she was by the text message Hartley allegedly sent informing her of his decision to file for divorce. Fans of the show rallied around her in support and were happy to see her move on with someone new.
The couple confirmed their romance in December 2020 by posting a photo that showed Keo planting a kiss on Chrishell. The next day, Chrishell followed it up with another snap that showed Keo kissing her on the cheek. “The internet has absolutely zero chill. So I guess you saw this already, but I’m just gonna leave this here,” she captioned the post. In the weeks that followed, she appeared on the Viall Files podcast and teased about her budding romance. “The timing of it, I was like, oh uncomfortable, I don’t know what — you know, I just want to be careful what I say because obviously I’m excited and everything, but, you know, you don’t want to squash something by talking about it,” she told host Nick Viall. By the Christmas holiday, Chrishell shared how Keo “fit right in” when meeting her family, per People.
So what caused the duo to call it quits shortly after their first Valentine’s Day? We explore the reported reason here.
