Justin Hartley was seen locking lips with his former The Young and the Restless co-star Sofia Pernas, after filing for divorce from his wife of two-years Chrishell Stause in November.  

The 43-year-old actor appeared lost in the moment, as he kissed Pernas, 30, outside the Southern California Orthopedic Institute on Friday.


His doting new girlfriend not only dropped off the This Is Us star for his doctor’s appointment, but came back hours later to pick him up. The co-stars-turned lovers first met on the CBS soap opera, which Hartley starred on from 2014 to 2016 as Adam Newman.

His new flame portrayed Marisa Sierras, Adam’s nephew’s girlfriend in 2015, on the same set Hartley met his estranged wife.

The pair’s smooch comes after the Smallville star filed for divorce late last year, citing irreconcilable differences in his legal filings.

At the time sources say the split came as a complete surprise to Chrishell. There is still some dispute over the timeline of the breakup.


In divorce filings, Justin listed the date of separation as July 8. While, the All My Children alum claims November 22, the day he filed, was the actual date of separation.

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.


Sources close to Chrishell think he has fudged their official separation date because he has some sort of deal in place and doesn’t want her to have a part of it. 

TMZ previously reported that Chrishell’s lawyer, Samantha Spector, is asking Justin to pay her client spousal support, to his dismay.
