Chrishell Stause is no longer wearing her wedding ring.
The 38-year-old actress was photographed out and about in Los Angeles on Friday, but left a familiar piece of jewelry behind amid her split from Justin Hartley. Stause, who stunned in a black off-the-shoulder dress, put her ring-less hand on full display while walking her dog.
The Selling Sunset star's outing comes soon after she moved out of her and Hartley's home. "Chrishell is a real estate agent, so finding a place of her own wasn’t hard, but moving out was," a source told ET earlier this week. "Chrishell still loves Justin but knew getting out of the family home was for the best. Chrishell is still very upset, but trying to stay strong and has the help of her friends and family."
"Although hard, Chrishell has taken off her wedding ring," the source added.
Stause responded to Hartley's petition for divorce and filed for dissolution of marriage citing irreconcilable differences on Tuesday -- but listed a different date of separation than her estranged husband. Hartley listed their date of separation as July 8, 2019. Stause's filing listed the date as Nov. 22, 2019 -- the day Hartley filed for divorce after two years of marriage.
"Chrishell is still shocked that Justin filed for divorce and is devastated how everything is unraveling," ET's source said. "Chrishell signed up for a marriage, to work through things and fight for their love, but she feels Justin has just given up."
The source also claimed: "Justin loves Chrishell, but people close to the couple feel he’s choosing his career path over their marriage. Justin is finally getting his big break in Hollywood and it’s completely changed him and how he treated his marriage."
