Gleb Savchenko has hit back at claims he had an affair with Dancing With the Stars partner Jana Kramer. In an interview, the professional dancer breaks his silence, saying suggestions the pair hooked up in 2016 while dance partners on the program are 'not true.
Savchenko, 38, explained, 'There's a lot of acting, there's a lot of chemistry, natural chemistry and you know, when you dance and you train someone every day, and you're up close and personal, you develop a certain connection.'
He continued, 'The viewer sees it. I mean, you want to have that because you want to last in the competition, and my job was to make sure that we go really, really far.'
He added, 'Have we ever had anything? Absolutely not. Absolutely not. Whatever she might have said it to her boyfriend, maybe she tried to make him jealous, you know. You can ask her the same question, she'll probably answer the same thing.'
At the alleged affair, Kramer had just separated from her NFL star husband, Mike Caussin, who reportedly sought treatment for sex addiction. The couple reconciled in 2017, one year after their split, but they would separate for good in 2021.
Kramer, 38, starred on One Tree Hill, then dated US Navy SEAL Ian Schinelli for six months, with the pair calling it quits in April this year.
It was Schinelli who claimed that Kramer had cheated with Savchenko. Schinelli alleged, 'Jana has admitted to me that she slept with two guys while Mike was in rehab. She slept with Gleb.'
In his interview with Savchenko, Schinelli's allegations came as a shock. The professional dancer said, 'I feel a little sad that he had to go that way and say something about her.' Schinelli continued, 'She justified it by saying, 'We are legally separated.'
'I was amazed. Jana texted me, 'Jana's like, 'Dude, like can you imagine he said all of this? I've never, you know whatever.' So, but, absolutely not.'Meanwhile, Savchenko's former wife Elena Samodanova, the mom of his two daughters, had previously come forward with her cheating allegations.
Samodanova's rep claimed when the duo split in 2020, 'It's no secret that Gleb has had affairs with former dance partners – and who knows who else.'Savchenko has denied his former wife's claims.
