It’s over! Chrishell Stause and Keo Motsepe have broken up after three months of dating, Us Weekly can confirm.
An insider exclusively tells Us that the split is still fresh.
“She broke up with him earlier this week,” the source says. “There were multiple things that led to the breakup. Keo’s super upset over this and still trying to process it.”Chrishell Stause and Keo Motsepe. Courtesy of Chrishell Stause/Instagram
One day before the news broke, Motsepe posted a portrait of himself via his Instagram Story. He captioned the post, “Trust in God.” The Dancing With the Stars pro then posted a pic with his mom, who died in January.
“Damn I miss you today,” he wrote. “Miss our prayers together and u telling me , it’s going to be fine!”
The Selling Sunset star, meanwhile, shared a cryptic Instagram post on Wednesday, February 24, featuring her dog.”It’s you and me kid,” she captioned the snap, seemingly alluding to the breakup.
News of their split comes after the pair spent their first Valentine’s Day together. They posed for a photo, which Stause shared via Instagram, with the realtor’s beloved pet.

“My Valentine,” she captioned the photo, adding an emoji with heart eyes.
The professional dancer shared one of Stause’s headshots on his Instagram page, writing, “I LOVE YOU BABY happy Valentine’s Day.”
Stause and Motsepe met in September 2020 after the Kentucky native was cast on season 29 of DWTS. She was partnered with Gleb Savchenko while Motsepe was paired with Anne Heche.
It was rumored initially that she and Savchenko, who announced his split from wife Elena Samodanova shortly after he was eliminated from the ABC dancing competition, were a couple. Both the Russia native and Stause denied those claims.
“Our friendship during our season on DWTS was not the reason for our split,” he said in a November 2020 statement. “Elena and I have had longstanding issues in our marriage. This has been an ongoing situation between Elena and I paired with poor timing.”
Stause, for her part, addressed the controversy later that same month, saying, “I feel like it really is annoying because it’s one of those things where, unfortunately, the timing of what he’s going through personally, people want to make it into something it’s not.”
One week later, she and Motsepe made their relationship Instagram official. Speaking with Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick via Instagram Live the following day, Stause revealed that she broke the news about her new relationship to friends during Motsepe’s birthday party.
“I think that was the night we were like, ‘I don’t know how much [longer] we can hide this for,'” the actress said at the time.
The pair vacationed with Savchenko and Cassie Scerbo in Mexico. They shared several cozy snaps together from the trip.
Stause and the South Africa native later spent Christmas together with her family. They shared several photos from the trip, including a few in matching pajamas.
The All My Children alum was previously married to This Is Us‘ Justin Hartley for two years. The pair went through a public breakup in November 2019. Us broke the news last month that they had finalized their divorce a year after they called it quits.

Wants to put a ring on it? Scott Disick confesses his desire to fully commit to ex Kourtney Kardashian in a brand new Keeping Up With the Kardashians clip.
In a sneak peek of the E! reality show’s final season, Disick, 37, and Kardashian, 41, are grilled by the Poosh creator’s family about whether they will ever reconcile. Kim Kardashian begins the discussion by asking, “Kourtney and Scott, so when are you guys gonna get back together?”
Disick says that “wherever Kourt stands, I stand with her forever,” to which Kourtney notes is “nice.” The 40-year-old KKW Beauty founder, however, suggests that it “would be epic” to have “a Kourtney-Scott wedding.” After Khloé Kardashian declares that Kourtney should “propose” to the Talentless designer, Kris Jenner weighs in with her own marriage idea.Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian.

“Scott, if you could just bring it within yourself to go over there and get on one knee, propose, we’ll have the wedding,” the businesswoman, 65, says. “It’ll be amazing. Make my daughter respectable.”
Disick doesn’t disagree with Kourtney’s family’s opinions on their reconciliation as he declares, “Well, I love you and I’m ready to marry you. Right here, right now. Kourtney knows that eventually we’ll get married and live a good life.” The former Dash owner replies, “or when you wanna work on yourself” before her former flame asks, “What else do I have to do?”
Disick and Kourtney dated on and off for nine years before splitting for good in 2015. They coparent children, Mason, 11, Penelope, 8, and Reign, 6.
Though the Flip It Like Disick star is currently dating Amelia Gray Hamlin and the wellness guru is seeing Travis Barker, Us Weekly exclusively revealed on February 3 that the exes still have “an incredibly special bond that no one can ever come between.” The former couple’s “history together and love for each other can’t be touched by anyone else, and they both know that,” the insider added.
Kim announced in September 2020 that season 20 would serve as KUWTK’s final run. The long-running reality show is set to return to E! next month.
In addition to airing discussions about Disick and Kourtney’s possible reconciliation unfold, Us exclusively revealed in January that Kim’s marital woes with estranged husband Kanye West will also be explored after she filed for divorce on February 19. The “Flashing Lights” rapper, 43, is “less than thrilled” that the pair’s issues were documented for TV, the source told Us.

It’s official! Shailene Woodley confirmed that she is engaged to Aaron Rodgers three weeks after he surprised football fans by revealing he had a fiancée during a speech at the NFL Honors.
The Big Little Lies alum, 29, addressed her romance with the quarterback during the Monday, February 22, episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
“So it’s kind of funny. Everybody right now is freaking out over it and we’re like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been engaged for a while,” Woodley told Jimmy Fallon on Monday’s episode. “He’s, first off, just a wonderful, incredible human being. But I never thought I’d be engaged with somebody who threw balls for a living. Like, I never thought as a little girl … ‘Yeah, when I grow up, I’m gonna marry someone who throws balls! Yeah!’ But he’s really just so good at it.”Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley. IPA/MEGA; Sara De Boer/Startraks
The actress also confirmed that the twosome met during the coronavirus pandemic.
“When I first met him, I think my dog like pulled me aside and was like, ‘If you don’t date this dude, I will disown you as my mother, because the three feet that I run with you when you throw a ball is nothing compared to the marathon I’m able to run with him,’” she said, noting she’s never even been to a football game. “We met during this whacky, whacky time and all the stadiums were closed that he was playing in, so I have yet to go to a football game. I didn’t really grow up with sports, especially American sports. It was never really on my radar. When we met, also, I knew he was a football guy, but I didn’t know like what kind of a football guy he was. And I’m still constantly learning.”
Rodgers, 37, revealed on Saturday, February 6, that he is engaged but did not specify to whom. “2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change, growth, some amazing, memorable moments, 180 straight days of having my nose hair scraped, playing for very little fans or no stands the entire season,” he said during the NFL Honors awards in his acceptance speech for the 2020 AP Most Valuable Player. “I got engaged and I played some of the best football in my career.”
The Green Bay Packers quarterback then expressed his gratitude to his loved ones. “So I’d like to thank, first and foremost, my teammates for their support, their inspiration, protection, incredible play on the field. … Off the field I’ve got a great group of people that support me, so I’d like to thank my team,” he raved. After listing several more individuals, he gave a shout-out to “my fiancée.”
He concluded: “There’s so many more people I’m thankful for. Just encourage people to read books, to meditate, speak things to life, manifest the desires of your heart, question everything and spread love and positivity.”
The engagement news came days after Us Weekly confirmed Rodgers and Woodley’s relationship. “Aaron and Shailene are dating!” a source told Us. “They started off as friends, but things have turned romantic. The two are staying in contact while they are living away from each other. The relationship is long-distance for right now, but they are making it work.”
The couple first sparked romance rumors in July 2020, although they kept things low profile for months.
Rodgers previously dated Danica Patrick for more than two years. Her rep told Us in July 2020 that the pair were “no longer together.”
The NFL star opened up about changes in his personal life in September 2020. “I have just a new and increased love of life and I have made decisions and changes and habits that put me in a lot better headspace,” he explained on The Pat McAfee Show. “There’s just a lot of things that have come together in my life over the last few months that have really been enjoyable and reminded me, given me perspective in life and in football to view things through the most positive lens I possibly can.”
For her part, Woodley confirmed her split from Ben Volavola in April 2020 after first being linked to the rugby player, 30, in 2017. She told Bustle at the time that the two “were very much on the road to marriage and children” but she realized she “was still at an age where I wasn’t able to fully commit.”Listen to Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood as each week the editors of Us break down the hottest entertainment news stories!
