Shortly after Gleb and Elena announced on Friday they had decided to call it quits on their relationship after 14 years of marriage, Chrishell denied playing any role in the breakup amid speculation she and Gleb might be secretly romantically involved.
"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," the 39-year-old Selling Sunset star wrote on Instagram Stories, according toPeople.
Alluding to her own divorce from actor Justin Hartley, Chrishell continued, "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."
Elena later accused Gleb of "ongoing infidelity" and "a recent inappropriate relationship." She admitted her trust in Gleb has been "irrevocably broken" and so she must "walk away and begin to heal."
"After 14 years of marriage, and multiple affairs, I've decided enough is enough," Elena toldPeople.
"Gleb and I have created a family and multiple businesses together. 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."
Elena elaborated, "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. Last night was the final straw, and I can no longer turn my head the other way."
Gleb, however, has denied engaging in a relationship with another woman and cheating on his wife.
"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," Gleb told People in a statement, before insisting his relationship with Chrishell has been nothing more than a friendship.
"My relationship with Chrishell was and remains strictly platonic," Gleb said.

"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."
Gleb added, "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's representative also backed Gleb's claims by denying allegations she had an affair with the pro dancer.
"Any insinuation or accusation that Chrishell is in any way involved in the dissolution of Gleb and Elena's marriage is 100 percent categorically false," Chrishell's representative told the magazine in a statement.
"To be clear: Chrishell and Gleb are in no way, and have never been in any way, romantically involved."
Elena first broke the news of her separation from Gleb on Friday in her Instagram Stories.
"After 14 years of marriage with my deepest sadness our road is coming to an end," Elena wrote alongside a photo of Gleb and herself.
The blonde Russian dancer later posted a quote on her Instagram account that seemingly accused Gleb of being at fault for their split.
"I don't hate you, i'm just disappointed you turned into everything you said you'd never be," the quote read.
Not long after Elena went public with the split, Gleb posted his own message on Instagram and confirmed the breakup.
"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," Gleb wrote alongside a family photo with Elena and their children.
"We ask that you respect our family's need for privacy and healing during this time."
Gleb and Elena's failed marriage may come as a surprise to fans since they just celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary in July and everything seemed to be fine between the couple.
"Two souls but with a single thought, two hearts that beat as one. Happy 14th Anniversary my love," Gleb wrote on Instagram at the time.
Chrishell gushed about her relationship with Gleb in an October Instagram post in which she showed off a massive bouquet of pink roses, which apparently got people talking.
"OK full disclosure, @glebsavchenkoofficial and I had our first fight-ha! If apologies look like THIS, I guess it's not so bad!!" wrote Chrishell, who split from Justin in November 2019 and recently revealed on Dancing with the Starsshe's now single.
"We both care so much and I love the passion he brings to what he does. We are working on me picking up some of his strict Russian nature, and I am softening him up with a little southern charm. Finding the balance landed us here and I truly think this could be our best week yet #TeamSellingIt #DWTS."
