That all my children Alum and Jason went public with their romance in July 2021 during a European vacation, surprising fans of the Netflix reality series with their relationship. At this point, the two had been dating for a few months but initially kept their connection under wraps. The colleagues resigned in December 2021.
“While Chrishell and I are no longer together we remain best friends, we will always love and support each other. She was the greatest girlfriend I’ve ever had and it was the happiest and most fulfilling relationship of my life,” the Oppenheim Group co-founder wrote on his Instagram Story when the two announced their split. “Chrishell is an extraordinary person and loving her and having her in my life is one of the best things that has ever happened to me.”
For her part, Stause acknowledged that the breakup was partly caused by her and Jason’s different visions for their future. “Although my first reaction to a private situation was not to talk about it, sometimes it’s easier to just live transparently because we only get one chance in this life,” she noted in a statement of her own. “I really hope to have a family one day, and decisions I make at this point are centered around that goal. Thank you for the kindness and support for those who understand.”
That Young and restless Alum revealed her romance with G Flip, 27, during season five Sell sunset Reunion in front of Jason and her co-stars. Earlier this year, the musician claimed that the couple are on the same page when it comes to potentially starting a family.
“I definitely see kids in my future,” the Australian native said on the PEOPLE Every Day podcast in May. “Right now, me and Chrishell know where we are in the stages of our lives. And we are very transparent about that. … I’ve always loved children and, yes, definitely will someday in the future.”
