Chrishell Stause and Keo Motsepe split: Truth behind his 'lies' and friendship with 'misogynistic cheaters'
Chrishell and Keo dated for three months but after news of their split came out, she slammed Keo for playing the 'victim'
'Dancing With the Stars' competitors Chrishell Stause and Keo Motsepe's intense romance shot through the roof then simmered, and eventually faded in the three months that they have been together. The news of their split went from being 'amicable' to bitter in a matter of hours, thus breaking a short romance. She wanted to keep it "drama-free" but sources close to her ex hinted that she may not have been 100% into the relationship.
"Keo is heartbroken. He enjoyed his time with Chrishell and was 100 percent in it... He's had a tough time with his mom's passing, but he really wanted to make his relationship with Chrishell last," Etonline quoted an insider.
This prompted the 'Selling Sunset' star to present her side of the story via Instagram stories. She shared a clipping of the article with a note that read: "Ok I TRULY wanted to keep this drama-free, but playing the victim and bringing your mom into it is a step too far for me. I was also 100% in it as well," she continued, "until revelations told to me recently have made me question if you could even order a coffee without lying".
As expected, her addressing the breakup in an upfront manner didn't sit well with some of the users, of which one said that it may not be the exact "representation of his feelings". "I gathered all the facts before I posted. Don't worry. I know where it came from," Chrishell responded and added Dua Lipa's popular track 'IDGAF' to the story. This is when you know she is ready to draw the curtains on her short-lived relationship, which came on the heels of her divorce news with Justin Hartley.
Chrishell and Justin were married for a couple of years before she was reportedly blindsided by him with the news of their split. She learned of it via phone calls and digital news outlets. It was heartbreaking and confusing in equal measures. Also, it didn't help that this tough phase was playing out on 'Selling Sunset' Season 3. But she got herself together and moved on from the bitterness.
The next thing we know, she is ready to own the dance floor on 'DWTS' Season 29. She may not have won but it did help her to look forward to newer experiences in life, and that's where Keo came in. He swept her off her feet and the two got into a whirlwind romance, the highlight of which was when they vacationed alongside her partner from the ABC-show Gleb Savchenko and new girlfriend Cassie Scerbo. It was controversial because Gleb's estranged wife Elena Samodanova was not okay with the PDA he was packing on. A lot was said and written when the photos surfaced.
Now, fans who seem to have done their research on the Chrishell-Keo relationship timeline are blaming the guy for all that may have gone down between them. "Keo hangs out with misogynistic cheaters like Gleb and Val and has had multiple failed relationships the past few years. But yeah Chrishell is the problem," one commented, to which another shared: "Yeah if you’re a good person you should be keeping company with good people."
"I swear if only Keo is cut for his messy behavior and breakup with Chrishell but they keep Gleb and the racist anti-vaxxer trio Jenna, Val, and Peta I just know the racist producers would pull that stunt," a user pointed out. "Y’all wtf happened between Chrishell Stause and Keo? Swear 5 mins ago they where having like the best Valentine’s Day?!?!" a fan wondered.
