In 2019, news revealed that Hartley filed for divorce after two years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. There were discrepancies in the duo's separation dates as Hartley, 43, stated that they were separated in July 2019, while Stause dated it as November. 

The pair was said not to have signed a prenup, and their separation posed a big topic. Stause claimed that her former husband filed for divorce via text message.


Like her, Hartley seems to be moving on with his former "Young and Restless" co-star Sofia Pernas. They were said to have reconnected after meeting last spring. Hartley and his new flame have also been spotted kissing in public.

An insider told ET that Hartley was glad to be moving on and had been ready for a while. He had Pernas made their relationship Instagram-official on December 31, where they cozied up in photos. 

Presently, she seems to have also left the past behind, moving forward with her new lover.


Back when they worked together on "Young and Restless," Pernas and Hartley had no romance going on. However, amid quarantine, the pair grew closer and got to know each other better. 

Stause, on the other hand, kindled her relationship with Motsepe after the 29th season of DWTS. During the show, the TV personality was paired with Gleb Savchenko. 


In his recent interview on Radio Andy on Thursday, Hartley, who plays Kevin on "This Is Us," made it known that he was happy about the current state of his career and personal life, adding that he was thankful for good health.

The actor noted that he was very aware of how his personal life made headlines, but he was unwilling to feed more stories to the paparazzi as he continues to keep things private. 

However, it seemed "Selling Sunset" star Stause had a hard time coming to terms with the fact that her ex-husband moved on fast. Presently, she seems to have also left the past behind, moving forward with her new lover.
