Gleb Savchenko’s 14-year-marriage may be over… but Chrishell Stause wants everyone to know that she had nothing to do with it!
The 39-year-old actress and star of Netflix’s Selling Sunset has been accused of getting a little too close to her Dancing with the Stars partner, 37-year-old Gleb Savchenko, amid the reports that he and Elena Samodanova, his wife of 14 years, are going their separate ways.
However, Chrishell hasn’t taken the accusation lightly, and has issued a statement – via her rep – to insist that she and the DWTS pro are nothing more than friends…
“Any insinuation or accusation that Chrishell is in any way involved in the dissolution of Gleb and Elena’s marriage is 100% categorically false,” her rep reportedly said in a statement.
“To be clear: Chrishell and Gleb are in no way, and have never been in any way, romantically involved.”
Gleb took matters into his own hands and issued a statement to insist that the separation had nothing to do with a third party…
“While I will continue to respect the privacy of my family, I will not stand by and allow false accusations and internet rumors go unaddressed,” the pro dancer said in a statement.
“My relationship with Chrishell was and remains strictly platonic. Our friendship during our season on DWTS was not the reason for our split. Elena and I have had longstanding issues in our marriage. This has been an ongoing situation between Elena and I paired with poor timing.
“It was my deepest hope to keep our private life just that: private. I am saddened and disappointed to see that Elena has chosen not to do the same.”
The end of Gleb’s statement is in no doubt in reference to his wife’s recent accusations in the media…
“After 14 years of marriage, and multiple affairs, I’ve decided enough is enough,” Elena Samodanova told People, when news of the separation first came out.
“Gleb and I have created a family and multiple businesses together. But apparently, it just wasn’t enough to keep our marriage strong.
“Gleb’s ongoing infidelity and a recent inappropriate relationship has created turmoil in our marriage and absolutely torn our family apart.”
“No wife should ever stand by and watch while another woman gifts her husband expensive presents, lures him out to dinners and seduces him at every turn. Last night was the final straw, and I can no longer turn my head the other way.
“My trust in Gleb is irrevocably broken and it is time that I walk away and begin to heal so I can be the best version of myself for my girls.”
Elena didn’t give any more details regarding the alleged other woman and the alleged “recent inappropriate relationship”, although the internet believes that it’s likely she may have been referring to Chrishell.
Chrishell also referenced Gleb and Elena’s separation on Instagram when the news first broke, adding that she wouldn’t wish the end of marriage on anyone; especially following her widely publicized divorce from This Is Us star Justin Hartley last year…
“I am so saddened about the news of Gleb and Elena’s split. It is unfortunate that this has caused rumors to swirl about my personal life,” she said on her Instagram Story.
“Having gone through a public split myself, I would not wish this on anyone. As you can imagine, the countless hours of training, and dance rehearsals has created a strong supportive friendship, but nothing more.
“I wish nothing but the best for both Gleb and Elena during this unfortunate time.”
