‘It’s about the person, their heart’: Chrishell speaks out about G Flip in Instagram video
She says there was ‘context missing’ from the Selling Sunset reunion
Chrishell Stause has said there was “context missing” from the Selling Sunset season five reunion, and in an Instagram video has spoken out about G Flip, whom she is dating, as well as her ex, Jason Oppenheim.
For several months, gay TikTok has been abound with rumours that Chrishell, 40, was dating non-binary 27-year-old Australian singer G Flip.
Then at last week’s Selling Sunset reunion, Chrishell confirmed to host Tan France that the two have been “dating” and “spending a lot of time” together, saying G Flip is “very important” to her.
Now, Chrishell has spoken out in an Instagram video, saying she is attracted to a “masculine energy” and a person’s heart, not their “physical form”.
She said G Flip has “opened [Chrishell’s] eyes” to different options of what her future could look like.
Chrishell captioned the video explaining the difference between sex and gender: “For those that are open to learning (you’re awesome) sex is anatomical and gender is how someone identifies. These two things are often confused.
“There are many more qualified people to speak on this but maybe I can be the bridge to those of you open to understanding.”
G Flip has commented on the Instagram, saying: “Well said beautiful 🌈❤️✨”, as did Jason, who said: “Such a beautiful video. ❤️💯”. The video has over 2m views, and thousands of supportive comments from Chrishell’s Selling Sunset co-stars and fans alike.
“I just would rather talk to you guys straight from me”, Chrishell said in her Instagram video. She said some “context was missing” from the Selling Sunset season five reunion. “We shot [the reunion] for so long and that has to be cut down and put into a one hour show,” she said. “I just felt that in this situation it might be nice to give some context, because I think some of you are confused or worried.”
Chrishell said: “You don’t get to choose when you come into someone’s life. As much I wish what I wanted in my last relationship aligned, you know the same things, it didn’t, and that’s okay. That doesn’t diminish how much love we have for each other, Jason and I, and how much we want each other to genuinely be happy.”
When Chrishell and Jason announced their break up in December 2021, they said they had different ideas about starting a family. In a post on her Instagram grid, Chrishell said Jason is her best friend and thanked him for “the most incredible relationship”, but said: “Men have the luxury of time that women don’t and that’s just the way it goes.”
In Chrishell’s recent video, she went on to speak about G Flip: “In this current situation with G, it’s one of those things that – yes I wish … we are in the same stage of our life, we wanted the same things, but that doesn’t diminish the deep connection that we have made, and the way that they have opened my eyes to what that future could look like.”
Speaking about having a family at the Selling Sunset reunion, Chrishell said she’s “taken some of the pressure” off herself as to what that could look like, and mentioned she is open to other options such as adoption.
Continuing on her Instagram video, Chrishell said: “I don’t know what that [future] will end up looking like but I do feel, I will always attribute the fact that I have so many more options and things in my future, just because – and I know some of you won’t understand or agree with this but for me, it is about the person, it is about their heart.
“For me I am attracted to masculine energy and I don’t really care what the physical form is, and with G they identify as non-binary, so their pronouns are they/them. Everyone is different but for them they really feel like they are a mix, they identify on both sides of male/female. That’s one of those things I personally find such a beautiful mix and I think it’s probably why we did connect on such a deep level so quickly.”
Chrishell said she understands the situation may be “new” or “confusing” for some of her fans, but said she thinks it is “an act of love to understand” that if it’s not something you know, to still keep “curiosity about life” and learn.
She said she and Jason “genuinely want the best for each other” and have “real respect and love” for each other. Whilst the reunion focused on Chrishell’s dating revelations and Jason “didn’t have anyone to speak about that he’s dating, that doesn’t mean he’s not living his best life.”
Chrishell ended the video by saying: “I will never not have the absolute utmost respect for G. Right now I’m enjoying life, I’m really happy, you don’t have to be worried about me guys. I hope if this is all confusing to you, you stick around and keep an open mind, I think that’s a beautiful thing.”
