A day after filing for divorce from wife Chrishell Stause, the This Is Us star stepped out ringless while out and about in Los Angeles on Saturday. Hartley, 42, was dressed in all black and wearing dark sunglasses as he made a quick stop at the gas station. The actor's left hand was visibly without his wedding ring.
ET confirmed on Friday that Hartley filed for divorce after two years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. According to docs obtained by ET, Hartley lists the date of separation as July 8, 2019. However, he and Stause had been spotted attending a Hollywood event last week.
Following the news, a source told ET that the couples' friends were very surprised by the sudden divorce filing.
"People close to Justin and Chrishell are completely shocked by Justin filing for divorce," the source said. "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."
The two have no children together. However, Hartley is a father to 15-year-old daughter Isabella from his first marriage to Lindsay Hartley.
Hartley and the Selling Sunset star tied the knot in October of 2017 at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California. Hartley met the Kentucky native on the set of The Young and the Restless, and after nearly three years of dating, the actor proposed.
