Following Gleb’s announcement that he has split from wife Elena Samodanova after 14 years of marriage, Chrishell, 39 who was eliminated from ‘DWTS’ with Gleb earlier this week moved to deny mounting speculation that they were more than friends.
Chrishell – who split from her husband Justin Hartley last year – wrote on Instagram Stories: “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.
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 (sic).”
Meanwhile, Gleb and Elena announced their split on their respective social media accounts.
Elena, 36, wrote: “After 14 years of marriage with my deepest sadness our road is coming to an end.”
She later posted a cryptic quote, which read: “i don’t hate you, i’m just disappointed you turned into everything you said you’d never be (sic).”
And Gleb, 37, wrote: “It is with a heavy heart that I tell you my wife and I are parting ways after 14 years of marriage. We still intend to co-parent our wonderful children together who we love so dearly, and we will strive to continue to be the best parents that we can to them. We ask that you respect our family’s need for privacy and healing during this time.”
