“Keo’s hanging in there,” the insider provides. “He’s getting a lot of support from friends, and of course, Chrishell. They’re pretty much inseparable and spend a lot of time together.”
The Dancing With the Stars professional, 31, revealed that his mom had handed away on January 6, posting an emotional tribute to the “queen of my heart.” As he continues to mourn, Stause, 39, has been his “rock.”
“She’s always leaned on him for support with her divorce and now he’s leaning on her for support,” the supply explains. “She was able to relate to his recent loss because she lost both of her parents to cancer, so she completely sympathizes with what Keo’s going through. She’s totally there for him 100 percent. … They really do have a great relationship.”
Stause made her relationship with the South Africa native Instagram official final month, simply over one yr after her November 2019 break up from Justin Hartley made headlines. Her father, Jeff, died of lung most cancers in April 2019 and her mom, Ranae, succumbed to the identical illness in July 2020. Despite the ups and downs she’s confronted in her private life, the Selling Sunset star’s romance with Motsepe has “blossomed pretty quickly.”
“Their relationship has grown a lot further than where it was a few months ago,” the supply tells Us, noting that the Kentucky native “clearly has strong feelings” for her new man. “Keo worships the ground she walks on — he is so wrapped around her finger!”
The lovebirds lately went on a romantic journey to Mexico with Gleb Savchenko, who danced with Stause on season 29 of DWTS, and his new girlfriend, Cassie Scerbo. Weeks earlier than the couple’s getaway, Savchenko, 37, break up from estranged spouse Elena Somadanova after 14 years of marriage. Following information of his divorce, the Russian dancer and Stause had been rumored to have had an affair, however each denied the allegations. Scerbo, 30, lately gushed over the previous cleaning soap star and Motsepe, telling Us that she’s “really happy” for them each.
“They are amazing. Both of them,” the Sharknado star mentioned earlier this month. “They’re both wonderful people. Absolutely, like, literally not one negative thing to say, just so much fun. So just wonderful, great energy.”
After spending time with Savchenko and Scerbo in Mexico, Stause introduced her beau house for the vacations to fulfill her household. Less than three weeks later, Us solely confirmed that the Netflix star and Hartley, 43, finalized their divorce in a “confidential settlement.” At the time, an insider revealed that “Chrishell has moved on with her life [and] is looking forward to new beginnings” with Motsepe.
