I first saw her on the CBC & UPN network show, Heartland (now airing on Up TV and was happy to see her on GH. Good luck to her and maybe the ION network will air her show since they have aired other Canadian shows like Private Eyes with Jason Priestley (now) and Erica Durance’s show Saving Hope for 5 seasons.

According to court documents on Friday via TMZ, Justin is citing irreconcilable differences as the cause of the split.

The date of their separation is listed as July 8, 2019, which has perplexed those in the media when the pair have been seen together in recent months at Hollywood events and sharing posts of one another on their social media accounts.

Justin and Chrishell were last seen together in public last week on November 14th at a Hollywood Reporter-sponsored pre-Golden Globes party.  Reps for both actors have you to share statements or make a comment.

Hartley and Stause tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Malibu’s Calamigos Ranch back in October 28th, 201, which was four years to the day after they met.

As daytime fans know, Justin and Chrishell met when they were both part of the soap opera community.  Justin was last on daytime as Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless.  Hartley has one child, Isabella, from a previous marriage to another soap actress, Lindsay Korman, who he met when they both were on the defunct NBC soap Passions. Justin and Lindsay were married for 8 years.
