Selling Sunset stars Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim have opened up about their shocking decision to split after five months of dating.

Shortly after news of their break-up emerged on Tuesday evening, the pair took to their Instagram platforms to explain that their "ideas of family did not align".

Chrishell, whose romance with Jason is set to feature on season five of the hit Netflix series, wrote in her statement: "I have tried to embrace the world I have found myself in and that includes being open and honest about my relationship."

"It felt scary and terrifying knowing that it may not end in what society deems a success and what I am ultimately looking for. But after many long heartfelt talks, I am choosing to see it as a success no matter what label is attached to it publicly," the 40 year old added.



Chrishell, who was previously married to This Is Us star Justin Hartley, continued: "Jason was and is my best friend, and other than our ideas for family ultimately not being aligned, the amount of respect and love we have for each other will not change going forward.

"Men have the luxury of time that women don't, and that's just the way it goes. All of that being said, navigating this public terrain is difficult and I am just trying my best.

"No one would rather only speak about work related things more than me. But I understand this comes with it, and I will always love and be extremely grateful for the opportunities I have been given."


Chrishell added: "Although my initial reaction to a private situation was to not speak on it, sometimes it's easier to just live transparently because we only get one chance at this life. I very much hope to one day have a family, and decisions I make at this point are with that goal in mind.

"Thank you for the kindness and support to those that understand."

The real estate agent concluded: "And thank you, Jason for the most incredible relationship and for consistently being honest with me even when it hurts."

Jason also shared a statement about their split.

Saying how they will "remain best friends and will always love and support each other", he alluded to their different views on family and how that was their deciding factor to part ways.

He added: "While we have different wants regarding a family, we continue to have the utmost respect for one another."

Jason, who co-owns one of Los Angeles' leading real estate firms, The Oppenheim Group, with his twin brother, was confirmed to be dating his costar Chrishell back in July.
