Lukas Gage and Chris Appleton are to divorce after just six months of marriage.

The White Lotus star, 28, and Kim Kardashian’s hairstylist, 40, exchanged vows in a surprise Las Vegas wedding in April – but TMZ reports Appleton filed for divorce on Monday citing ‘irreconcilable differences.’

The couple’s date of separation is listed as Friday and they have a prenup in place.

A source told the publication the split was ‘not an easy decision for Chris to make  but he tried everything he could to make the marriage work and needed to make the best decision for himself moving forward.’

The pair’s wedding was documented on Hulu series, The Kardashians, with Kim, 43, officiating their wedding.

She also organized for music superstar Shania Twain to serenade the couple. 

 Shania sang, ‘Chris, Lukas, looks like you made it, get over here, let’s do this.’

Both Chris and Lukas said, ‘We love you!’ as Shania broke into her 1997 classic You’re Still The One.

Lukas and Chris wed in front of only six guests  at Little White Chapel after applying for a marriage license in Clark County. 

It was the same wedding venue where Kourtney Kardashian & Travis Barker, Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner, Bruce Willis & Demi Moore, and Frank Sinatra & Mia Farrow previously walked down the aisle.

Two of the other guests were Appleton’s two children – 19-year-old son Billy and 17-year-old daughter Kitty-blu – whom he welcomed with Leicester salon owner Katie Katon before he came out as homosexual at age 26.

Kitty-blu  Instastoried several snaps from Las Vegas, including a selfie with Kimwhile watching  Usher perform at Park MGM’s 5,200-seat venue Dolby Live.

The  newlyweds could not keep their lips off each other as they sang along.

Gage and Appleton made their romance public in February when they shared vacation snaps from The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort in Mexico.

‘I’m very happy. Very much in love. And I feel very grateful to be able to share my time with someone very special,’ Appleton gushed on The Drew Barrymore Show on March 17.

‘Love is a really special thing and I think meeting someone that you really connect with is really really special.’

In turn Gage said he felt ‘very happy, very lucky, and very much in love’ while appearing on the March 27th episode of TODAY.

‘He’s a good-looking man. Something about being in London, I got a taste of the Brits and couldn’t help myself.’

Gage is known for his role as Dillon on season one of The White Lotus, Adam Pratt on season four of You and Tyler Clarkson on Euphoria.

He also has a recurring role as Lars Olmstead in the 2019-set fifth season of kidnapping black comedy Fargo, which premieres later this year on FX.

Meanwhile, Chris  has a client list that includes Kardashian, Daytime Emmy-nominated host Drew Barrymore, two-time Grammy nominee Jennifer Lopez, and three-time Grammy winner Dua Lipa.
