Sara Evans

Denies Having a

Cheatin' Heart

10/18/2006 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sara Evans and Craig SchleskeSources involved in the nasty Sara Evans divorce case tell TMZ that Craig Schelske, Evans' estranged husband, accused her of having affairs with celebrities.

We're told while they were still living together as husband and wife, Schelske accused his wife of having affairs with country singer Kenny Chesney and other unnamed "associates in the music business." Sources also tell TMZ Schelske accused Evans of having an affair with Tony Dovolani, her partner on "Dancing With the Stars."

A rep for Evans, who did not want to be quoted by name, tells TMZ that Schelske's accusations are absurd and untrue.

In her divorce papers, Evans accused Schelske of having an affair with the couple's nanny. Evans also claims Schelske had photos of himself having sex with other women and had at least 100 nude photos of himself in a state of arousal.

As for Evan's connection with Chesney, the two singers toured together back in 2000 and 2001. Chesney was briefly married to actress Renee Zellweger in 2005. Again, Evans' rep says the two singers never had an affair. TMZ has placed calls to reps for Chesney and Dovolani for comment.

Update 7:45 p.m. ET: A rep for Kenny Chesney tells TMZ allegations are: "completely untrue. Sara was the special guest on Kenny's first headlining tour and they're friends. He would NEVER think of her like that. He's saddened by what Sara and her family are going through in this personal situation." The rep adds that if Craig truly did make these accusations Kenny is "disappointed in Craig and the media for perpetuating groundless allegations."

Something about all this just doesn't seem right. First she asks that people respect her privacy at this time and the next thing you know she is on national television talking about the whole thing. All she had to say was she was pulling out of the competition for personal reasons and leave it at that. Why would she go on national television to air her dirty laundry? And why in all her termoil did she find it necessary to mention in her interview that her dancing partner would be coreographing her next tour. You'd think that would be the last thing on her mind if her children truly were her first priority. Something just doesn't seem right.

I thank that Sarra figured the publicity finds out anyway. People like to start lies to bring people down. when you are pretty well known the trueth won't be a secret long. So she figured that it was best to go ahead and go streight out with the truth. That don't mean that if she is not telling everything that she is lieing. And I do hate it for the kids as for there mother and father being seperated. How she went about expressing whats happend Is a fart in a whirl wind compared to what we all are dealing with today, My mother and dad divorced. It was nasty. We still love each other like we should and teach the grand kids as they grow whats going on. Basicly what I'm trying to say is get off her back. And he is enacent till proven guilty . So stop trying to be heros by trying to pry in somebodys buisness and fabricate what's happend for attention. What would we do without publisity and pobarosy or what ever the stupid * _ _ _ _ is!!!!!!! Thats what makes good people go bad. The best thing to do is to watch Dr Phill and the world would be a better place. Don't let them nock you down for what you beleave in Sara. Stand tall.

my husband used to always accuse me of cheating with all kinds of guys too. i never did, but my hairdresser said that if your husband is accusing you of cheating and you're not, he is! i always said, no way, not my husband, he's a great guy. he used to say all the time that fidelity is the most important thing in the world. well guess what. i found proof on his computer a year ago that he had cheated on my numerous times. he was (is) a sex addict and was leading a double life with swingers clubs and porn and the works. so ladies, beware- if your man accuses you too.

Almost half the people in the world are male, the rest are female. One half wants what the other half has and visa versa. It hardly makes sense that, when we commit ourselves to someone, we can't live up to it. Stop and think: sex is the same thing with one as it is with hundreds of others so why can't we be satisfied?
In any case, I think Sara should have handled this secretly instead of publicly. If anyone is smart enough to play the game, isn't it strange that this person went from way down there in popularity to the top along with Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson overnight??? This is quite an accomplishment!

Uhhh Maria? why don't you watch the T.V. and see who's the one talking about it? Sara ISN'T talking about it, it's ET, the Insider, Dancing with the stars, the nanny and the father/husband. o.O I really wish people would read or watch something before they say who's talking and who's not.

Kenny Chesneys' people sue that sicko for defamation of character. If he is a gov't great maybe he won't be for long. I really like her as an artist and I'm sorry this happened to her. He must have had something up his sleeve because if it the story is true he moved money from a joint account to another. Sara Evans should find out who that account is with. As for Kenny Chesney he is a fine credit to his gender. All the guys are jealous because of Kennys girlfriend. She is beautiful. WOW.

Sara DID file privately...and quit Dancing without hoopla...BUT the media got wind of it all, spread it around, and Sara took the classiest approach still available...She just said It's rough, my kids need me with them, and I'm moving on....Never heard a thing about her having any affairs, until his became public. He and the nanny both deny it..of course they do, just like kids deny lying, stealing, and breaking stuff so they don't get in trouble, but Sara claims to have proof of her claims, and I'm sure she does, but Craig can't prove his claims about her, and has to resort to saying she is mentally ill for stirring this up. My guess is that Sara found out about Craig and the nanny, and gave him a second chance...all without publicity. And Craig's coverup included the nanny getting married. But I'm thinking Craig blew in on his second chance, and Sara discovered it was all much worse than she had known before, and still happening, so she gave him the boot. If you look at the way Craig is 'fighting back' it sure seems a lot more like retaliation to me. Anyway, it's hot news for now, and we'll probably all find out much more than we ever really wanted to know...in time. I know this: if I were married to Sara Evans, I wouldn't be playing around, I'd make sure it worked. Since Craig is officially 'unemployed', instead of being lonely, he could have toured with her, or at least flown to wherever she was on occasion, to stay connected. I think she's a great lady, and it's his loss.

I really had a change of heart about sara Evans after hearing her interviewed by Tom Bergeron the other night. I blasted her like a lot of people but after hearing her, I saw sincerity in what she had to say.

I don't know about you Darrel, but if Schelske verbally abused his wife, watched porn in front of his little kids and took pictures of himself having sex with several other women, HE is a TOTAL scumbag!
