After not even three months of dating, it appears that Chrishell Stause and Keo Motsepe have gone their separate ways.

A source close to the 31-year-old dancer revealed that couple called it quits "very recently.”

"They may get back together but likely, at this point, they won't," the insider said.

"They had a fun time together but in the end, decided it would be best if they part ways," a separate source close to Stause added. “They are still friendly and cordial. It wasn't a messy breakup, just wasn't the right fit or right timing."

The two first fox-trotted their way into a relationship when they both appeared on season 29 of Dancing With the Stars. Although they were not paired together — Stause danced with Gleb Savchenko while the pro was paired with actress Anne Heche — sparks flew on set. 

Rumors that the two were making moves off the dance floor were confirmed in December 2020 when the South African native captioned a video of himself on the ‘gram calling Stause her “baby,” writing, “I will always make you smile @chrishell.stause." Then, he shared a snap of himself kissing the reality star on the cheek.

The now former flames recently vacationed in Cabo, San Lucas, in Mexico and were joined by Savchenko and his girlfriend Cassie Scerbo.

“Thank you @leblancresorts for having us! Happy to celebrate this woman in my life. @chrishell.stause crazy about u baby,” Motsepe gushed in a photo posted from the hotel, showing him posed arm in arm with Stause.

The brunette beauty even brought her new man home for the holidays to meet her family, and the couple celebrated Valentine's Day earlier this month, posting sweet tributes to each other on social media.

THE TRUTH BEHIND ‘SELLING SUNSET’: THE SECRETS & SCANDALS OF THE CAST

Although another source echoed the fact that the split was "a mutual breakup" and that the two "are still friendly," the timing has to sting for Stause. The 39-year-old's divorce from husband Justin Hartley was finalized just weeks before the news of her breakup broke.

The former soap star had been married to the This Is Us star for just over two years, and together since 2014, when the actor abruptly filed for divorce in November 2019. The heartbreaking divorce was played out on season three of Netflix’s Selling Sunset, where the gorgeous real estate agent claimed she was entirely blindsided by the split.

E! was first to report on the split.
