Sophia Bush has reportedly embarked on a rebound romance with women’s soccer star Ashlyn Harris, less than a month after filing for divorce from her husband Grant Hughes.
It’s a surprising turn of events, given Sophia and Grant had only said ‘I do’ in Tulsa, Oklahoma less than a year ago and the actress only recently taking steps to end their union.
The actress, 41, has had many romances in the public eye, with many of her suitors being co-stars on her hit CW show, One Tree Hill.
Here, DailyMail.com takes a look back at Sophia’s much talked-about love life:

Sophia Bush famously married Chad Michael Murray, her One Tree Hill co-star, in 2005 after two years of dating before their subsequent split just five months later.
The couple said ‘I do’ in Santa Monica before celebrating at Hotel Casa del Mar with their friends and family. Unfortunately, it was not meant to last with the newlyweds calling it quits soon after.
Bush attempted to get the marriage annulled on her grounds of fraud, but her efforts were unsuccessful, and the divorce was ultimately finalized in 2006.
‘This is a difficult and unfortunate situation. I am glad this is being resolved sooner rather than later,’ Sophia said in a statement shared with People at the time of the finalization.
Recounting their relationship in 2014, she said on Watch What Happens Live: ‘We were two stupid kids who had no business being in a relationship in the first place.’
‘To all the other costars who’ve worked it out, more power to you.’

‘Losing one of my best friends a few months ago shattered me,’ Sophia told Health magazine later that year.
‘There were days I felt like my body had been turned inside out. I felt like my heart was on the outside of my body and everyone who came near me was stabbing me,’ she said.
But Fredinburg’s shock death was also a wake-up call to the actress and activist, who realized there are no second chances in life.
‘And the crazy thing is that since Dan died, the lessons have come like Mack trucks.
‘There is no next time. There is no excuse to wait a day to do what you want to do and to change the way that you want to change.’
