A source tells ET, "People close to Justin and Chrishell are completely shocked by Justin filing for divorce. The couple has always been incredible with no signs of things being on the rocks. Friends are speculating this was an impulse on Justin’s side due to something that happened, and are hopeful the couple can work things out."
ET confirmed on Friday that the This Is Us actor filed for divorce after two years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.
