Jesse Lee Soffer Steps Out After Splitting from Sophia Bush

Jesse Lee Soffer Steps Out After Splitting from Sophia Bush

Jesse Lee Soffer suits up on the red carpet while attending the opening ceremony of the 2015 Monte Carlo TV Festival on Saturday (June 13) in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The 31-year-old actor was joined at the event by his Chicago P.D. co-stars Marina Squerciati, Brian Geraghty, and Patrick Fueger.

This was the first appearance that Jesse has made since we exclusively revealed the news that he and his girlfriend and fellow co-star Sophia Bush split after nearly a year of dating.

Other stars in attendance at the event included Patricia Arquette (with partner Eric White), Poppy Montgomery (with husband Shawn Sanford), Madam Secretary‘s Tim Daly, Nashville‘s Eric Close, and Bo Derek.

FYI: Jesse is wearing head-to-toe John Varvatos.

    Dear JJ, it was nearly a year and a half FYI.

  • confused

    Sophia denied the breakup on Twitter…..

  • Tiff

    I’m so confused by all this. Just Jared going to at all address the tweets from Jesse and Sophia and thieninstagram posts?

    Oddly, this is the first time I’ve ever seen Just Jared use Jesse in the headline, which makes me wonder if his is management placed story. I adore the actor, but he’s not usually a draw for an individual story in this site.

  • Lexi

    She already moved on; shouldnt take too long before he does too. He deserves it!

  • Lexi

    She never said it was true or not. Basically, the only thing she meant was that they should mind their own business.

  • Sunny

    It’s Patrick Flueger as well, might want to correct. They’ve played this wrong from the start and their denials the other day made it seem like they’re still together, I don’t get their rationale there. It’s become increasingly obvious that there hasn’t been a reunion. They need to stick to a story. To suggest they were never together is a blatant lie, they could give their fans aka the people responsible for them to get paid a bit more credit. I just don’t quite understand the denial of the break up, what’s the motivation and no, it wasn’t damage control.

  • Te Little

    I want to know when Just Jared is going to address the tweets that Sophia and Jesse made.

  • Te Little

    Who has she moved on with?

  • jr

    So many sources,always same story

  • Tiff

    All the sources from the break up go back to the original Just Jared story. One “news” outlet and everyone piggybacked off it. Everything I’ve seen quotes the same JJ story and wording of that “source”.

  • Te Little

    I agree! All stories piggybacked off just Jared.

  • Lexi

    He’s not an actor or anything.

  • Tiff

    If it’s who I think you’re referring to, I still think they’re just friends and that he’s just hanging with her crew for the summer.
    I’d buy Dana Brunetti before that guy.

  • Tiff

    I forgot to comment – how amazing is the fashion (minus Brian, what was he thinking with that shirt, haha). Jesse looks dashing, Patrick looks ever so handsome, and Marina my gosh – GORGEOUS!! She is a true beauty.
    Can’t wait to hear some news about the panels or interviews coming out of this festival.

  • jr

    If you say so..

  • suzybel

    I wouldn’t give him up, no way.

  • Tiff

    I’ll give them denial of a break up (especially if they never confirmed they were together), but my big question is why address it at all. There’s been plenty of times JJ has run stories calling JLS her “beau” and she’s never shot back at them for that. The inconsistencies all over the place is not only frustrating, but somewhat infuriating; I know it’s “none of my business” but it’s out there, so I’m reacting.

  • Sunny

    I’m with you there, I find it all incredibly bizarre and not one bit of it makes sense. Immediately after the paparazzi photos of them leaving the doctor’s office together is when it all got so strange. Sophia’s on her way to Africa, perhaps when she gets back they’ll figure things out.

  • Tiff

    That Cory guy is going with her, per her tweet :( Maybe he is indeed the new guy. I don’t want to believe it. But she tweeted about being on the flight with him.

  • Sunny

    I’m pretty certain she tweeted that so it wouldn’t seem like she’s hiding anything. I’m of the bellief that they’re just friends. From what I gather, he was always planning on going on this trip. Their friend Danielle organized it.

  • Te Little

    Do you think she is still dating Jesse?

  • Sunny

    I honestly don’t know. They’ve lied about their relationship so much that at this point it’s hard to even guess. I kind of think that might be their goal but it’s an awful lot of work. I still don’t quite get the vehement protest of the break up stories. Part of me thinks she might have suggested they take a time out over the summer and he got pissed but I don’t know for certain. I hope they’re both happy and if they did break up, I hope they figure it out in a very short time since they have to be back in Chicago in less than a month.

  • Tiff

    Regardless, at least it they both “appear” to be happy; she’s looking positively glowing in pictures, and he looked petty happy in Monte Carlo. He’s been super quiet on social media though; could be maybe he’s upset, or could just be a summer time out.
    I feel like fans, myself included, are reading WAY too much into things and need to cool it. Admittedly hard to do. I’m so perplexed.

  • keola96

    He’s been friends with Danielle and most of Sophia’s friends for long time. Danielle invited him not Sophia. I believe they are just friends, I don’t think Sophia is with him. He is best friends with Jed and staying with him in LA

  • Sunny

    Well, they are actors after all! :) I find myself overanalyzing the whole thing but blame it on the weirdness of it all. It is all very weird. I imagine his social media break is because he doesn’t want to have to see Sophia’s pictures from Africa, he went silent the week she was in Telluride too. His friends keep liking her photos though, again, weird. I will say that Sophia’s handled whatever this ‘drama’ is way more professionally than Jesse. In any event, hope they figure it out before they start filming.

  • Tiff

    I was floating back and forth about them being friends or more, but I think I’ve settled on them just being friendly. Sounds like Cory is always down for an adventure, and this opportunity presented itself.
    I believe Jed is staying at Sophia’s house while he’s writing his book, so if Cory is staying with Jed, he’s staying at her place too.

  • Tiff

    Fair enough, they are actors. LOL. But as you mentioned, it’s just all so strange. After putting tabloids on blast via tweet, Sophia replied to JJ with a “thanks doll” when there was something about her at the fragrance awards. So add that to the list of bizarre things that just don’t add up.
    The friend behavior is perplexing as well – “her” friends and “his” friends all le each others photos, as well as SB’s and JLS’s but those two seem to be avoiding each others posts.
    I think Sophia is a lot more seasoned with dealing with these kinds of things, and Jesse has gotten a rude awakening / taste of what it’s like in a bit of spotlight. I guess we’ll see what happens when filming resumes next month – it’s right around the corner.

  • Sunny

    Agree with everything, it’s wholly bizarre. Hopefully they’ll work things out if they really did *break up.*

  • keola96

    Jed had his own place in LA that he shares with his other guys. And Cory been posting pics from Jed place. One of Jed’s friends went on periscope and said that he lives with Jed and other roommates

  • Sunny

    Plot twist, Vanessa, who unfollowed Jesse on IG weeks ago was liking his photos today. Confusing folks these are.

  • Tiff

    I’m reminded of a funny quote that says when life doesn’t go your way, throw your hands up in the air, yell “plot twist” and move on! ha!
    That is so random – did she start following him again? I know several of Sophia’s other friends have continued to like his photos, so Vanessa is only strange if she’s still not following him. Maybe they enjoy keeping us guessing. Add it to the list of unexplicable behavior.

  • Sunny

    HA! I like that! No, she didn’t refollow him. Looks like Sophia is in Africa for another couple of days and Jesse is in NY. Maybe they just needed a summer break. Who knows, it’s all just bizarre and rather disappointing.

  • Tiff

    IF they were dating last summer, Sophia went on a 3 week trip sans Jesse then too. Hopefully they’re just off for the summer enjoying their time with friends who they don’t get to see when they’re stuck in Chicago for 9 months of the year.
    All this behavior adds to the guessing game though – were they a couple, if they were, did they break up, are they still together, is she dating that other guy (who is also in South Africa with her, and it so far the only other two mentioned to be there I think are a couple…) so is it a couples trip? And who took that pic of Sophia and Babs in the tub together naked? The guy, or maybe the photographers that were traveling with her. All mysteries! What’s not a mystery? Jesse looking smoking hot on that boat, wherever he is :)

  • Sunny

    Danielle invited him on the trip, SA was always part of the plan because Sophia mentioned great whites last week. The tub picture was weird as hell, not going to lie. Good point about last year’s trip and yes, they were together then because the IG pics of Paddy’s that leaked of them canoodling were before her trip last year. I don’t know why this bothers me so much. Add to it, Jesse’s best friend Aaron just posted a photo essentially confirming what we already knew that they all spent NYE together. Agreed, Jesse can captain a ship for me any.time. I’m close by maybe I should seek him out, ha! #kidding

  • Tiff

    I wish I could email you, Sunny! I could talk about this all day, lol.
    Two weeks ago this stuff bothered me. Now it perplexes and amuses.
    I don’t understand the photo Aaron posted. It’s not even #tbt. Does he not know how Instagram works? Why post that photo today, from NYE? Talk about random.
    Jesses boat trip looks like an interesting crew – a few childhood/old friends and significant other, Jesse, and his mother? Lol. Mamas boy? I never hear his dad mentioned. Wonder what the story is there.

  • Sunny

    I know!! Me too! There’s no private message feature? I think the boat may be Jesse’s family’s boat. Paddy (who also seemingly ‘broke up’ with his gf) and LaRoyce are apparently headed to NY to hang out with Jesse presumably for the holiday. Aaron posting that photo was so utterly random. He definitely seems like a mama’s boy. I’m not 100% certain about his dad except to believe that they’re not close. I think he’s significantly older, Jesse has two much older half siblings and then has two younger half sisters from his mom and her previous husband. Regarding S’s trip, the blonde hipster is significantly younger which further makes me believe the ‘just friends’ label is legit. Either way I just want Sophia and Jesse to be happy, if she was the breaker because of bad choices well, it’s time to grow up! :)

  • Tiff

    Sooooo much to discuss.

    I hope the person who just emailed me was you, lol. And I don’t start getting spammed

  • Sunny

    It was me. Responding to your last email now. :)

  • keola96

    Couple months ago I was curious to see how his dad looked like. I looked him and found it on genology.com. It said his dad died in 1993. So when he was around 9. Sophia has been liking his pics he posted. Jesse seems to be staying off social media. He hardly likes as much as pics before. Only to post a few pics here and there. How old is the blonde hipster?

  • Sunny

    Thanks for that info. That’s too bad.

    The blonde hipster is 27/28. I really am getting a ‘just friends’ vibe. Maybe I just want S & J to figure out their issues, perhaps this is the time apart they needed..only time will tell.

  • Te Little

    I still think they are together. Maybe it is just wishful thinking on my part. Very strange though.

  • Tiff

    I’m with you both on the wishful thinking part. I need to get over this. Especially if they are, LOL

  • keola96

    Me too I’m just getting a just friends vibe from the blonde hipster. He is best friends with Jed and has known that Danielle who organized the trip for awhile. i just don’t see it happening. But me too I want s&j to figure out their issues and be okay again. They have less than 21 days before they start filming and probably will be in Chicago before than.

  • Te Little

    Any update?
