Chrishell Stause

Off the market. After their recent Instagram announcement, fans may be curious to know who is Chrishell Stause’s boyfriend, Keo Motsepe?

Stause and Motsepe, a professional dancer on Dancing With the Stars, announced their relationship on Wednesday, November 2, with the same post on their Instagram. The picture saw the two side by side as Motsepe kissed Stause’s cheek. Motsepe captioned the picture with a simple heart emoji. Stause, who posted the photo on her Instagram Story, commented on his post with two pink hearts.

Along with his Instagram post, Motsepe also took to his Instagram with a video of him calling Stause “baby.” He captioned the video, “I will always make you smile.” Stause’s relationship news comes amid rumors that she had an affair with her DWTS partner, Gleb Savchenko, who split from his wife, Elena Samodanova, after 14 years of marriage in November. The Selling Sunset star shut down the rumors at the time with a post on her Instagram Story.  “I am so saddened about the news of Gleb and Elena’s split. It is unfortunate that this has caused rumors to swirl about my personal life. Having gone through a public split myself, I would not wish this on anyone,” she wrote.

Motsepe is Stause’s first public relationship since her split from Justin Hartley in November 2019. The This Is Us actor filed for divorce from Stause by surprise, which she documented on Selling Sunset season 3.
