Chrishell and Keo met on Dancing with the Stars

The couple met while competing in Dancing with the Stars this autumn. In November, Gleb announced that he and his wife Elena Samodanova were separating after 14 years of marriage, leading to speculation that Gleb and his dance partner Chrishell were romantically involved.

In an interview with People, Elena spoke about Gleb's infidelity, saying that after "multiple affairs… enough is enough".

Gleb replied to Keo's kissing photo with Chrishell

"Gleb and I have created a family and multiple businesses together," she said. "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."

She continued: "No wife should ever stand by and watch while another woman gifts her husband expensive presents, lures him out to dinners and seduces him at every turn."

Chrishell and Gleb were paired together on the dance show

In response, 37-year-old Gleb issued a statement to HELLO!, in which he also spoke about the speculation surrounding his relationship with Chrishell.

"While I will continue to respect the privacy of my family, I will not stand by and allow false accusations and internet rumours to go unaddressed," he stated. "My relationship with Chrishell was and remains strictly platonic. Our friendship during our season on DWTS was not the reason for our split.

"Elena and I have had longstanding issues in our marriage. This has been an ongoing situation between Elena and I paired with poor timing. It was my deepest hope to keep our private life just that: private. I am saddened and disappointed to see that Elena has chosen not to do the same."

Chrishell split from husband Justin Hartley one year ago

Chrishell, who divorced actor Justin Hartley one year ago, also released a statement herself, saying: "I am so saddened about the news of Gleb and Elena's split. It is unfortunate that this has caused rumours 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 created a strong supportive friendship, but nothing more."
