It looks like Chrishell Stause may have found love after all while competing on Dancing With the Stars.

Weeks after both Chrishell and her season 29 pro partner, Gleb Savchenko, denied rumors that they were romantically involved, fellow DWTS pro Keo Motsepe declared to the world his feelings for the Selling Sunset star. On Instagram, Keo posted an adorable snapshot of himself and Chrishell along with a simple "❤️" caption.

In response to the picture, Gleb commented, "❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Love you guys!!!" Several other pros from the show also showed their support for the new couple, including Alan Bersten, Emma Slater, and Daniella Karagach.

Keo has recently shared another adorable moment of the two together in his Instagram Story. In the Instagram Story video, Keo surprises Chrishell by revealing that he's taping her. He captioned the slide, "I will always make you smile."

Original, November 16, 2020, 7 p.m. ET:

Former Dancing With the Stars contestant Chrishell Stause is vehemently denying that she and her pro partner, Gleb Savchenko, are more than friends.

Earlier this month, cheating rumors started to swirl after Gleb and his wife of 14 years, Elena Samodanova, announced their split on Instagram. The tone of the two Instagram announcements posted on Nov. 6 were quite different — Gleb posted a photo of his family asking fans for "privacy and healing." Meanwhile, Elena shared a cryptic quote that read, "I don't hate you. I'm just disappointed you turned into everything you said you'd never be."

Given the timing of Gleb and Elena's split, some began to speculate that Chrishell, who claimed to be blindsided by her divorce from Justin Hartley in November 2019, and her pro partner were romantically involved. This prompted the Selling Sunset star to respond to the cheating allegations the same day.

"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," she shared on her Instagram Story. "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 have created a strong supportive friendship, but nothing more. I wish nothing but the best for both Gleb and Elena during this unfortunate time."

The next day, Elena told People that her trust in Gleb was "irrevocably broken."

"After 14 years of marriage, and multiple affairs, I’ve decided enough is enough," she said to the outlet. "Gleb and I have created a family and multiple businesses together. But apparently, it just wasn’t enough to keep our marriage strong."

She added: "Gleb’s ongoing infidelity and a recent inappropriate relationship has created turmoil in our marriage and absolutely torn our family apart."

While alleging that Gleb had recently started seeing "another woman," she declared that "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."

"It is time that I walk away and begin to heal so I can be the best version of myself for my girls," she concluded.

Meanwhile, Gleb issued a statement (via his rep) to the publication in response. In it, he called out the hearsay about Chrishell specifically:

"While I will continue to respect the privacy of my family, I will not stand by and allow false accusations and internet rumors [to] go unaddressed. 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's rep also issued a statement after reading Elena's remarks: "Any insinuation or accusation that Chrishell is in any way involved in the dissolution of Gleb and Elena’s marriage is 100% categorically false. To be clear: Chrishell and Gleb are in no way, and have never been in any way, romantically involved."

Chrishell and Gleb were eliminated on Nov. 2 from season 29 of Dancing With the Stars. It's unclear whether the two have seen each other in person since.
