Jason Oppenheim's Dating History: From Chrishell Stause to Marie-Lou Nurk
After splitting from costar Chrishell Stause in December 2021, Jason Oppenheim dated model Marie-Lou Nurk for 10 months
Jason Oppenheim is back on the market!
After 10 months together, the real estate broker and German model Marie-Lou Nurk have broken up. The couple, who first met while vacationing in Mykonos, Greece, ultimately struggled to maintain a long-distance relationship with Nurk living in Paris and Oppenheim running his real estate empire from Los Angeles.
"While we still love and care about each other very much the distance between us has proven to be too great a challenge to overcome," Oppenheim shared with his followers on Instagram.
Prior to Nurk, Oppenheim briefly dated his Selling Sunset costar Chrishell Stause. But she isn’t the only co-worker Oppenheim has had a romantic relationship with. Long before Selling Sunset took off, he and longtime friend Mary Fitzgerald were an item. Though their romance fizzled before fans got to know them as a couple, Fitzgerald has remained an important fixture in Oppenheim's life, both personally and professionally.
The real estate broker also had a romantic relationship with fellow costar Nicole Young. Having dated Oppenheim roughly 14 years ago, she calls herself the "original girlfriend."
Here’s a look back at Jason Oppenheim’s dating history.
During season 6 of Selling Sunset, Young revealed that she and Oppenheim dated "13 or 14 years ago." She was not a real estate agent at The Oppenheim Group at the time.
"I'm the 'O.G.' ... original girlfriend," Young said on the reality show.
Fitzgerald had an on-again, off-again relationship with Oppenheim for about a year, long before cameras began following the Oppenheim Group realtors.
Fans learned of the pair's history during season 1 of Selling Sunset, when it was revealed that Fitzgerald and Oppenheim had dated and even lived together back in the day. During their relationship, they also adopted two dogs: Zelda and Niko.
Things between the two ended amicably, and Fitzgerald still considers Oppenheim to be “one of my longest and best friends.” In fact, Oppenheim still goes to Fitzgerald for dating advice. He sought out her approval while dating Stause, her best friend and mutual costar.
“Jason and I have a very special bond and friendship, but they have chemistry that is meant for more than just friendship,” Fitzgerald told PEOPLE of Oppenheim and Stause’s former romance in 2021.
Of her ex's new girlfriend, Fitzgerald told PEOPLE that Nurk is “very calm, very mellow," and “not a jealous person.” She and her husband Romain Bonnet have even gone on double dates with Oppenheim and Nurk.
"We go out with them all the time. She's amazing, and I've never seen him happier," Fitzgerald said.
Oppenheim’s professional-turned-platonic relationship with Stause became romantic in May 2021, though the pair didn’t go public with their romance until that July. In an Instagram photo carousel that sent fans buzzing, Oppenheim was photographed nuzzling Stause’s neck while they vacationed together in Italy.
Shortly after, Oppenheim exclusively confirmed to PEOPLE that they were in “an amazing relationship” and “very happy together.”
The couple made their red carpet debut at the L.A. premiere of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in August 2021. That same month, they joined Oppenheim’s twin brother Brett and his then-girlfriend Tina Lousie for a triple date with their parents, Bennett and Deborah Oppenheim. To mark their first major holiday together, Stause and Oppenheim spent Thanksgiving volunteering in their community.
However, by the time Christmas rolled around, the two had gone their separate ways. In December 2021, the Selling Sunset stars each confirmed on Instagram that they had split, citing “different wants regarding a family” as the cause of their breakup.
While Stause was excited to start a family in the near future, Oppenheim wasn’t on the same page about having kids. "You can't talk out this problem. It's just something that, it is what it is," Stause said of their differentiating views on parenthood in an interview with PEOPLE in 2022.
Stause and Oppenheim had to watch their relationship play out on the fifth season of Selling Sunset, which premiered in April 2022. Their romance was documented in its entirety and quickly became a character in and of itself. Speaking with PEOPLE at the time, Oppenheim compared it to “[getting] a divorce and [having] to watch your wedding video.”
During the show’s tearful reunion, Oppenheim referred to Stause as “the love of my life.” Though, as time has gone on, the two have been able to come back as friends. In June 2022, Oppenheim shared with PEOPLE that he and Stause are “in a healthy place.”
Six months after his split from Stause, Oppenheim found love again with model Marie-Lou Nurk.
The pair were first linked in July 2022 when photos surfaced of them packing on PDA while vacationing in Mykonos, Greece. During that same trip, Oppenheim made his debut on Nurk’s Instagram Story.
Speaking to PEOPLE after returning from the trip, Oppenheim stayed coy about his burgeoning romance with Nurk. "I mean, we're talking. I like her and maybe I'll see her soon," he said.
Not long after, however, the duo confirmed their relationship by walking the red carpet together at the L.A. premiere of Day Shift in August 2022. The following month, the new couple then returned to Mykonos for an extended trip alongside Oppenheim's brother Brett and his girlfriend, Samantha Abdul.
During the 2022 holiday season, Oppenheim and Nurk took things to the next level and met one another’s parents.
While Oppenheim “realistically could never move to Europe,” he briefly considered owning a piece of Parisian real estate. In the interim, the real estate broker purchased a 5,500-square-foot condo in West Hollywood — a place for him and Nurk to live together. "We're living here, I think, for many years," Oppenheim told PEOPLE during a tour of the luxurious space. "I've lived in many nice places, but this is my favorite place by far."
However, Nurk continued to live in Paris part-time. In a Q&A posted to her Instagram Story in April 2023, the German model shared that she wasn’t ready to pack up her life in France.
"Long distance relationships can be tough, but we're both committed to making it work. We make sure to communicate regularly and make time for each other despite the distance,” she wrote.
In May 2023, the couple made headlines after Nurk posted a series of photos on Instagram that fans assumed were from an engagement or wedding shoot. In the shots, the German model wore a white, feather-adorned mini dress, while Oppenheim wore a black suit and white shirt. She captioned the post: "Here's to a lifetime of adventures."
Oppenheim quickly clarified that they had not wed in a statement to PEOPLE, and Nurk later changed the caption.
The post came shortly after Nurk made her first appearance on Selling Sunset during season 6. She and the realtor visited The Oppenheim Group, where he introduced her to the ladies of the office. The pair also enjoyed a double date with Fitzgerald and her husband.
Later that same month, Oppenheim announced his split from Nurk.
"While we still love and care about each other very much the distance between us has proven to be too great a challenge to overcome," he wrote on Instagram. "We remain close friends and continue to talk often and support each other and we want the very best for one another. We thank everyone for their support throughout our relationship."
