In the world of Hollywood, relationships can be as fleeting as the paparazzi’s flash. And when a high-profile couple calls it quits, the public is always eager to know the reason behind the split. Such is the case with Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause, who made headlines after their divorce was announced in 2019. And now, with Stause’s recent revelations, the drama has once again resurfaced.
But amidst the accusations and finger-pointing, one person has come to Hartley’s defense: his ex-wife, Lindsay Hartley. The 43-year-old actress, who shares a daughter with Hartley, took to Instagram to sing her ex-husband’s praises and highlight his qualities as a “solid man” and “devoted father.”
“In a day when social media should be used for positivity… An inspiration towards movement in an honest and deserving way… I’d like to join, by highlighting my appreciation for my family,” she wrote in a lengthy post. “I appreciate what we have today and am thankful for the family we have built.”
Stause, on the other hand, seemed to find Lindsay’s involvement in the matter appalling. She posted a quote on her Instagram story that read: “Be the woman who fixes another woman’s crown without telling the world it was crooked,” and accompanied it with the caption: “Women who build each other up are my tribe.”
But that wasn’t all. Stause also hinted at the cause of her split with Hartley by liking a fan’s tweet that insinuated he had been unfaithful. The tweet read: “@justinhartley filmed a movie in Canada at the same time his new gf @SofiaPernas was filming the summer before they split. The timing seems like he probably cheated on @Chrishell7 and took a coward’s way out to avoid spousal support and gaslight her.”
The drama surrounding Hartley and Stause’s divorce has been a topic of discussion for some time now. The couple, who met on the set of “The Young and the Restless,” tied the knot in 2017 after dating for four years. But just two years later, Hartley filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Since then, both parties have moved on with their lives. Hartley is now dating actress Sofia Pernas, while Stause is engaged to “Dancing With the Stars” pro Keo Motsepe. But despite their new relationships, the drama between Hartley and Stause continues to make headlines.
It’s unclear what the future holds for these two, but one thing is for sure: Lindsay Hartley will always stand by her ex-husband’s side. And as for Stause, she’s determined to surround herself with women who uplift and support one another.
