Country singer Sara Evans was one of 11 celebrities chosen to partner professional dancers in the third season of the show “Dancing With The Stars”. Just when it looked like she was doing better, she suddenly quit the show leaving her partner high and dry.
Why the abrupt departure? The singer apologized to the network, ABC, and to her fans who have been very supportive of her. She announced that she had filed for her divorce from husband, Craig Schelske, ending her marriage of 13 years. She felt that she now needed to devote her time to her kids who are aged 7, 3 and 2.
Evans says that she filed for divorce because Schelske cheated on her, excessively drank and watched porn in their home. She also said that he has pictures of himself having sex with other women. Plus he also used their computer to watch more porn and access the internet to find and solicit sex with multiple partners.
Speakers for Schelske’s camp says that Schleske was taken completely off guard by the accusations and would prefer not to discuss this with the media. He said he has decided to forgive Sara and her publicity team for this. He says that they had struggled to come to terms with the changes in Sara over the past year as she dramatically became a different person. He says they failed to deal with it and all he can do is ask people to please pray for her and for his family in this difficult time.
To bad that their laundry couldn’t be handled more discreetly. It would have been nice if Sara Evans could have kept on dancing but everyone does understand that family comes before anything else.
