They say every dark cloud has a silver lining and now Kim Kardashian is hoping to help her hairstylist, Chris Appleton find HIS. Chris is licking his wounds over his disastrous short lived marriage to White Lotus star Lukas Gage, so quick-thinking Kim decided to turn the fallout from failed romance into a TV show! Let’s face it – when Kim calls, network executives pick up the phone! She recently reached out to the powers-that-be at ABC to pitch Chris as the first gay Bachelor! To sweeten the deal, publicity loving Kim agreed to make frequent appearances on the show and also serve as an executive producer. A decision hasn’t been reached yet, but Chris is up for a chance at finding love on TV -especially if Kim is part of the equation.

The man that J.Lo and Kim both adore is their handsome hairstylist Chris Appleton. Chris rarely if ever sees non-celebrity clients (he will for the right price) and J.Lo and Kim both have him on retainer, so he’s at their beck and call. It worked out fine when things slowed down during covid and the writers’ strike. But now that things are picking up and we’re heading into the Hollywood award season, poor Chris is trapped in an unmanageable love triangle! Kim and J.Lo both want to be the top banana so it’s become a complicated situation. My source predicts that sooner rather than later Chris will have to reluctantly choose ONE over the other since he can’t be in two places at once…
Now it can be told! We were the first to reveal that celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton’s marriage to White Lotus star Lukas Gage was headed for splitsville, and now we can share THIS juicy tidbit: My source revealed that Chris and Lukas actually split up months BEFORE they announced their split, but they kept it quiet. And THAT’s because Chris’s biggest client, Kim Kardashian, enticed him to keep the split private until AFTER their Las Vegas elopement episode aired on Kim’s reality show, The Kardashians! An entire episode of Kim’s show was devoted to Chris and Lukas’s surprise wedding – not only was she one of their only guests, but she even flew the couple on her private jet. My source explains that Kim thought it would be better for the ratings if Chris waited to announce the split until after the episode aired – and that’s exactly what he did.
We were the first to tell you about Chris Appleton and Lukas Gage having marital problems, and now that they’re officially splitting up, we will be the first to tell you the break up might not be as clean as Chris expected. Although they have a prenuptial agreement already in place, one thing that it doesn’t cover is an NDA. Chris does a lot of celebrity hair, with Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez being two of his biggest clients. Lukas hung out with almost all of Chris’s celebrity clients, so now Chris wants to make sure their secrets are safe. My source says that Chris plans on being nice and generous in the split if Lukas signs a non-disclosure agreement covering all of Chris’ celebrity clients as part of a compensation package. It seems Lukas can be somewhat of a loose cannon, and Chris doesn’t want to risk alienating any of his A-list friends and clients, so THAT’S why he’s willing to part with more cash.
WAY back in September, we were the first and only to report that celebrity hairstylist, Chris Appleton’s marriage to White Lotus actor Lukas Gage was doomed. Fast forward to today and TMZ reports that Chris just filed for DIVORCE. According to my source, the couple tried therapy but that didn’t work, so they had been living apart recently. They seemed to be compatible only in the bedroom, but they fought like cats and dogs when they weren’t getting frisky. A recent trip to Europe sealed their fate with one source describing their vacation as “round the clock bickering.” My source adds that mild mannered Chris is heartbroken and feels foolish that he rushed into such a public marriage after dating Lukas for a few weeks. Thanks to his client Kim Kardashian’s powerful recommendation, there’s a prenup in place.
Marriage problems ALREADY for newlyweds celebrity hairstylist, Chris Appleton and his husband White Lotus season one star Lukas Gage? The two rushed into marriage, eloping to Las Vegas on Kim Kardashian’s private jet, just a few months after hooking up. But now their initial infatuation has cooled and their 12-year age difference is becoming a thing. Our source says that the couple have off the charts romantic chemistry and might have mistaken passion for true love. They really didn’t know one another and are discovering they don’t have much in common outside the bedroom! They’re determined to try to make this work, so they’re in therapy, but at least one friend predicts this hasty marriage is doomed…
