Early November brought a bit of scandal to what was an already intriguing Season 29 of Dancing with the Stars, when the soon-to-be ex-wife of dancing pro Gleb Savchenko announced that the pair were divorcing, after claiming that he'd cheated on her multiple times, including very recently. Savchenko was partnered on this season with Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause, so many fans jumped to the conclusion that she had something to do with his marital strife. Now, though, it looks like Stause is officially in a relationship with one of the DWTS pros, but it's actually Keo Motsepe.
According to Entertainment Tonight, who spoke with two unnamed sources close to the Dancing with the Stars twosome, they say that Keo Motsepe and Chrishell Stause are dating, and started to become more than friends during their time together on Season 29, with one source noting:
Chrishell and Keo are officially dating. Keo and Gleb [Savchenko] are best friends... Chrishell and Keo are both awesome and felt like, 'I'm single, you're single. Let's try this.'
I mean, this does make sense, right? When fans began to accuse Stause of inserting herself into Gleb Savchenko's marriage, she wasted no time in coming out to defend herself. Stause posted to Instagram Stories saying that she and Savchenko had created "a strong supportive friendship, but nothing more" during their long hours training together, and wished both he and his wife the best as they went through such a difficult time in their relationship.
From what the source said, Savchenko and Motsepe are very good friends away from Dancing with the Stars, so it's pretty easy to see where Motsepe and Stause may have spent some downtime with one another during their time on the show this season because of Stause's dancing partner. Add that to whatever time they may have been able to cobble together while actually filming, and you have a solid recipe for romance.
Actually, speaking of Instagram, if you follow either Keo Motsepe or Chrishell Stause on the platform, you've probably noticed that the two have posted some very flirty pictures of each other in recent days. I mean, just look at this:
Well. That is about as flirty as a photo can get without us being able to tell that people are actually touching, right? And, if you didn't notice it, peep that heart emoji which served as Motsepe's only caption for this post. I doubt he'd go with this double whammy of a social media post unless he and Stause were an item and very ready for that information to be very public. Neither of them may have been a part of the winning duo on Dancing with the Stars, but isn't finding love better than a mirrorball trophy, anyway?
Fans of Selling Sunset will know that Chrishell Stause went through an incredibly public marital breakup not that long ago, from This Is Us star Justin Hartley, which we saw the fallout from on her Netflix hit. But, while it might seem like this would make Stause and Motsepe keep their romance to themselves until they felt it was a complete sure thing, the other source claims that the two are just having fun right now:
Everyone has been so supportive of their relationship. Things have been heating up and they're very into each other, but it's not super serious.
We'll likely be able to see how this new romance between Chrishell Stause and Keo Motsepe plays out on social media, so stay tuned to CinemaBlend for the latest on this and everything else in TV, movies and pop culture!
