No romance here! Chrishell Stause told Gleb Savchenko to “stay away” from her at the Dancing With the Stars finale on Monday, November 23, amid dating speculation following Savchenko’s split from wife Elena Samodanova. The Selling Sunset star, 39, slammed romance rumors during an appearance on E!’s Daily Pop on Tuesday, November 24.
“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,” Stause said. “So, we’re just friends.”
She also joked about seeing Savchenko at the finale and added, “I was like, ‘Stay away from me!’ Social distance! Blame it on COVID.”
After Savchenko and Samodanova, 36 — who share daughters Olivia, 10, and Zlata, 3 — announced their split on November 6, she accused him of “ongoing infidelity.” The DWTS pro denied her accusations in a statement to Us Weekly, on November 7, saying, “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.”
He then spoke to speculation that he and Stause were romantically involved.
