Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause enjoys fans SLAMMING ex Justin Hartley after ‘divorce text’ bombshell… then asks them to stop the ‘bullying’
Fans of Selling Sunset were outraged to discover that This Is Us star Justin Hartley informed ex Chrishell Stause over a text message that he would be filing for divorce back in November last year.
However, it seems Chrishell had mixed feelings about the support she received on Twitter after seemingly sticking up for her ex when she felt that Justin, 43, was starting to get ‘bullied’ on social media.
‘I SO appreciate all the love you guys have given for #SellingSunset,’ she tweeted over the weekend, adding: ‘That being said, some of you are attacking a certain person in defending me. I appreciate the sentiment because certain things made me mad too. But I hate feeling like someone is getting bullied.’

Chrishell had originally responded to a slew of funny and supportive tweets over the weekend, including one that referred to her ex as ‘Justin Fartley.’
Writer Ira Madison wrote ‘This n**** Justin Hartley TEXTED Chrishell that he was divorcing her?!?’ to which Chrishell responded: ‘Me trying to keep it classy and not like your tweet.’
She also responded to a GIF that showed the iconic Sex and the City movie scene where Charlotte berates Mr. Big for ditching Carrie at the altar.
But it seems as though the reactions were getting too intense for the reality star as she then backtracked and asked fans of the show not to be nasty and to stop bullying.

Fans had gone wild watching the episode where Chrishell reveals to her costar Mary Fitzgerald that the This Is Us actor sent the bad news on text message, explaining: ‘He text me that we were filed,’ she said, adding: ‘Forty-five minutes later, the world knew.’
Stause went on: ‘I talked to him right after because I thought that must be a joke. But that was kind of the end of the communication.’
‘When I found out, I was minutes before leaving the house for work so I immediately just grabbed a few things and I just got out of there as fast as I could,” the former soap star said.

‘I don’t think I really knew where I was going or what I was going to do, but I just had to leave.’
‘I’m just kind of in shock with it all,’ the former daytime TV star added through tears.
News of Stause and Hartley’s divorce emerged last November, with the 43-year-old actor citing irreconcilable differences in his legal filings.
At the time sources say the split came as a complete surprise to Chrishell.

There is some dispute over the timeline of the breakup.
In divorce filings This Is Us star Justin listed the date of separation as July 8.’ She claims November 22, the day he filed, was the actual date of separation, however.
Making things murkier, the pair made several public appearances together following Justin’s claimed date of separation, seen together at the Emmy Awards in September 2019, the Veuve Clicquot Polo game in October 2019, and a Hollywood Reporter-hosted pre-Golden Globes bash in November of that year.
