Selling Sunset’s Jason Oppenheim and Chrishell Stause have called it quits just five months after going public with their relationship.
According to PEOPLE, multiple sources confirmed the recent break-up, only one week after Crishell posted a video featuring her former bae on Instagram.
Why Did Jason Oppenheim and Chrishell Stause Break-Up?
A few hours after the news broke, Jason confirmed his split from Chrishell on Instagram.
“While Chrishell and I are no longer together, we remain best friends and we will always love and support one another,” he said.
“She was the most amazing girlfriend I’ve ever had, and it was the happiest and most fulfilling relationship of my life.
He continued: “While we have different wants regarding a family, we continue to have the utmost respect for one another. Chrishell is an exceptional human being and loving her and having her in my life is one of the best things that has ever happened to me.”
Later on, Chrishell took to her Instagram to open up about the news.
“Jason was and is my best friend, and other than our ideas for family ultimately not being aligned, the amount of respect and love we have for each other will not change going forward,” Chrishell wrote.
“Men have the luxury of time that women don’t and that’s just the way it goes. All of that being said, navigating this public terrain is difficult and I am just trying my best.”
Navigating a public relationship can be extremely difficult and Chrishell was hesitant to share the news, however, “sometimes it’s easier to just live transparently because we only get one chance at this life.”
She added: “I very much hope to one day have a family and decisions I make at this point are with that goal in mind. Thank you for the kindness and support to those that understand.”
Finally, she said: “And thank you Jason for the most incredible relationship and for consistently being honest with me even when it hurts.”
Jason Oppenheim Reveals Why They Initially Kept their Relationship Under Wraps
In early December, while doing the publicity rounds for the new season of the hit Netflix series, Jason — who owns the Los Angeles real estate firm Oppenheim Group — opened up about his relationship with his co-star.
Speaking to US Weekly, the realtor admitted why the pair decided to keep their romance under wraps for so long.
“I think when [a relationship is] public, it puts a lot of just added pressures and publicity and opinion,” he said.
Jason — who once was in a long-term relationship with co-star Mary Fitzgerald — also revealed that it was predominantly Chrishell’s decision to keep their coupling on the DL, saying: “I followed her lead on things, and I respected her decision making on that.”
Jason Oppenheim and Chrishell Stause Didn’t Even Tell Their Colleagues They Were Together!
Jason, the founder of Oppenheim Group, disclosed that he and Chrishell hardly told anyone they were dating.
The only people in the know of the pair’; relationship status were very select in their inner circle, including family friends. They didn’t even tell their colleagues!!
We’re not sure about you, but it was SO OBVIOUS during the season that they were together and just weren’t telling anyone…
So, in short, Chrishell and Jason were sitting on the JUICIEST piece of goss ever!!
The couple went public in July 2021, but we will have to wait for season five to see their co-stars IRL reactions to the news.
