In a surprising turn of events, renowned hairstylist Chris and Lukas decided to part ways after just over six months of marriage. The couple, who officially went public with their romance in February 2023, and wed in April 2023, with none other than Kim Kardashian officiating the ceremony, have separated.
According to reports, it was Chris who filed the divorce documents on Monday (November 13), citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split.
The official date of separation is noted as Friday, November 10.
Notably, the documents also disclose the existence of a prenuptial agreement in place. According to tabloids, it was Kim who asked the boys to sign the agreement before tying the knot.
Interestingly, Chris and Lukas’ wedding was prominently featured on Kim’s reality show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ just last week. The episode also offered a closer look at the relationship the hairstylist shared with the Kardashians, who has been his client and friend for years.
Sources close to the situation have revealed that Chris Appleton’s decision to file for divorce was not taken lightly. According to TMZ, the source stated, “This was not an easy decision for Chris to make,” emphasizing that he made every effort to salvage the marriage.
The source further added, “He tried everything he could to make the marriage work” and highlighted that Chris ultimately needed to prioritize his own well-being and make the best decision for his future.
As of now, neither Chris Appleton nor Lukas Gage has made a public statement about the separation.
The couple was last seen together just two weeks ago on a Halloween date night and were also spotted on a dinner outing with Chris’ daughter.
Both stars have not yet deleted any of their dreamy pictures together or even their wedding pics from their handles.
