Fans Defend Chrishell Stause Amid Rumors That She Had an Affair With Gleb Savchenko

Selling Sunset’s star Chrishell Stause recently competed on the latest season of Dancing with the Stars, where she was paired up with dancer Gleb Savchenko.

On Nov. 6, it was revealed that Savchenko and his wife, Elena Samodanova, had decided to part ways. Samodanova, then, accused Savchenko of having “multiple affairs” during their marriage, which made some people believe Stause might have been involved.

However, Selling Sunset fans are standing by Stause and not believing the rumors.

Chrishell Stause denied involvement in Gleb Savchenko’s divorce

Amid speculations that Savchenko had an affair with Stause, the Selling Sunset star took to Instagram to share her side of the story.

“I am so saddened by the news of Gleb and Elena’s split,” she wrote, according to Cosmopolitan. “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.”

Stause and her ex-husband, Justin Hartley, parted ways in late 2019 after he allegedly blindsided her with divorce papers. Stause’s experience with her divorce could be seen on Selling Sunset.

She also commented on the friendship she developed with Gleb, saying, “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.”

Coincidentally, on the day Savchenko announced his divorce, Stause also appeared on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s podcast Off the Vine. There, she talked about her feelings on cheaters, noting that she would not like to be anyone’s mistress.

“If I found out they were a cheater in some way, like, they had a girlfriend or that whole thing [that would be a deal breaker],” she said, as reported by Us Weekly.

Stause’s conversation with Bristowe mostly focused on dishonest men on The Bachelorette. She elaborated, “We see that every season. We find out there’s some girl at home who thought he loved her, you’re out of here. I don’t need to talk about it, we don’t need to have a conversation.”

It is important to note that Stause once accused her ex-fiancé Matthew Morrison of being unfaithful. Stause also seemed to have dropped hints on social media that Hartley cheated on her as well.

Meanwhile, Selling Sunset fans are also standing by Stause. They believe that, after everything Stause had been through, it does not seem like she would have an affair with a married man.

“I’m choosing to believe her on this,” one person wrote on Reddit. “It’s only fair after everything she’s been through, and there is zero evidence that anything untoward has happened between her and Gleb. She really doesn’t need randos on Insta and Reddit calling her a home wrecker if she’s done nothing wrong.”

Meanwhile, someone else commended Stause for being open with fans about the situation, saying, “Classy as always. Not hiding, and taking things head on with firmness, feeling and honesty.”
