3:59 PM PT -- The plot just thickened. Justin lists the date of separation as July 8, 2019 ... months ago. The weird thing is ... they've been together a number of times since then ... as recently as last week. And, in his docs, Justin says he does not want to pay Chrishell spousal support and he wants her to pay her own lawyer's fees. It is possible they had a prenup that would make spousal support unnecessary.
Hartley filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- in which he claims irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce from Chrishell Stause, who has been on "Days of Our Lives" and is a star of the Netflix show, "Selling Sunset."
It's almost like this came out of the blue. Justin and Chrishell were together just last week, so something seems to have happened.
The couple has no children together, so custody won't be an issue. It's unclear if they have a prenup. BTW, Justin has one child from a previous marriage.
Justin and Chrishell dated for 3 years before he proposed. They met when their mutual friend encouraged them to go on a date since they were both starring in soaps at the time and were single. He was on "Young and the Restless," and the soap community is small.
