KEY POINTS

  • Jana Kramer allegedly told her ex Ian Schinelli that she had an affair with Gleb Savchenko in 2016
  • Kramer and Savchenko's affair happened while she was legally separated from Mike Caussin
  • Schinelli claimed that she wanted to meet up with Savchenko while they were together

Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko had an affair in the past.

Kramer, 38, and Savchenko, 38, were partners when she competed during the 23rd season of "Dancing With the Stars" in 2016. Just recently, her ex-boyfriend Ian Schinelli confirmed that they had an affair during her stint on the reality competition. Kramer was separated from Mike Caussin at the time, but Savchenko was still married to Elena Samodanova. Savchenko and his wife split in 2020.

"Jana has admitted to me that she slept with two guys while Mike was in rehab. She slept with Gleb," Schinelli told Us Weekly. "She justified it saying, 'We were legally separated.'"

Kramer also confessed that she had flings during her split from Caussin. Kramer and Caussin reconciled and renewed their vows in December 2017 and split for good in April 2021 when he allegedly cheated on her. She dated Schinelli six months later.

"I never truly thought I did anything wrong. Correction. I knew it was wrong; I just didn't want to be the bad guy. I justified my actions in my mind just as I suppose Mike had done all along too," Kramer wrote in her and Caussin's 2020 book "The Good Fight."

The former Navy Seal also claimed that she attempted to meet up with Savchenko when they were still together.

"She even tried to meet up with Gleb while we were dating," he added. "He was doing a show in Nashville and she asked me if it was OK if she met up with him. I said, 'As long as there was nothing there anymore,' and she said, 'No.' She never went and said it was out of respect for me."

Meanwhile, Kramer said in a statement to Us Weekly that Schinelli was "twisting" things in light of their separation. The country singer claimed it was Schinelli who cheated on her with his ex-wife.

"The reason I haven't said anything further on this breakup was because Ian lied about cheating on his ex-wife and I was trying to protect her. She has become a friend of mine and I was trying to protect her privacy, but she has now given me permission to speak on her behalf," Kramer said.

"Ian is angry because all of his lies have been figured out and is now twisting the story. I have since found out from many women I was not the only one during our relationship, but I'm happily moving on with my life and I hope for him to do the same."

Meanwhile, another insider said Schinelli "claims he wanted to be private, but that couldn't be further from the truth." Kramer's ex-boyfriend also allegedly "bragged about how many followers he was gaining while dating Jana."

Kramer made her relationship with Schinelli Instagram official in January. However, she confirmed their split three months later, in April.
