Chrishell Stause is shooting down rumors that she’s had anything to do with her “Dancing With the Stars” partner Gleb Savchenko’s split from his wife Elena Samodanova.
“I am so saddened about the news of Gleb and Elena’s split,” Stause, 39, wrote on Instagram Friday night. “It is unfortunate that this has caused rumors to swirl about my personal life. Having gone through a public split myself, I would not wish this on anyone,” she continued.
Stause’s estranged husband, “This Is Us” star Justin Hartley, filed for divorce in November 2019 after two years of marriage; Stause claims that Hartley, 43, made the split via text message.
“As you can imagine, the countless hours of training, and dance rehearsals has created a strong supportive friendship, but nothing more,” the “Selling Sunset” star added. “I wish nothing but the best for both Gleb and Elena during this unfortunate time.”
Samodanova, 36, announced that she and Savchenko, 37, were splitting via social media on Friday. The two married in 2006 and have two children, daughters Olivia and Zlata.
Page Six reported that Savchenko and Stause were “the talk of the set” during their eight weeks on “Dancing With the Stars,” but that they had a blowout fight at one point that left Stause too upset to do post-show press, with Savchenko sending her flowers afterward.
