During season 29 of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” there was speculation that professional dancer Gleb Savchenko and his partner Chrishell Stause were romantically involved. At the time, they both denied that anything was going on.
When the speculation was running rampant, Stause told E! News Daily Pop that it was annoying.
“I feel like it really is annoying because it’s one of those things where, you know, unfortunately, the timing of what he’s going through personally, people want to make it into something it’s not. So we’re just friends,” said Stause.

Savchenko commented on the post with his thoughts on the update.
“❤️❤️❤️,” he wrote. “The best love you both so much!!!!!”
Savchenko Denied Cheating on His Ex-Wife
In a November interview with People magazine, Samodanova said that Savchenko cheated on her multiple times.
“After 14 years of marriage, and multiple affairs, I’ve decided enough is enough,” Samodanova, 37, told the magazine. “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.”
Later, during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Savchenko opened up about the allegations and denied them, adding that he believed his wife was “mentally abusive.”
“I saw her on cameras around the house,” Savchenko told ET. “She would pull out, park her car in front of the house, completely change, put on heels and leave. She would tell me that she would go to the studio to work, and then show up at 4 a.m. completely drunk, and wake up my daughter from trying to open the door.”
The pro dancer added that he believes the couple had been having problems for a long time.
“We’ve had problems for years,” he shared. “I was in a mentally abusive, jealous relationship. I always said to myself, ‘Listen, she’s the mother of your kids, and you love her, just make it work for your kids.’”
