Sara Evans' Husband Lashes Out

10/20/2006 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sara Evans' husband says his wife cheated on him and he found out the day before she filed for divorce.

In court documents obtained by TMZ, Craig Schelske claims the day before Sara filed divorce papers, he "discovered Wife's intimate relationship with another man not her husband and an argument ensued between the parties."

Sources connected with the case tell TMZ that while they were together Schelske accused his wife of having an affair with Tony Dovolani, her "Dancing with the Stars" partner. Evans and Dovolani have both said the claim is bogus.

In his legal papers, Schelske also denies having a penchant for porn. He says, however, that on one occasion, both he and his wife "were watching adult entertainment together when their oldest child, whom they believed to be secure and asleep, entered their room...."

Schelske denies Evans' allegation that he was unfaithful during the marriage and denies there were "any sexual photographs of himself with any other women as there are no authentic photographs of husband unclothed with any sexual partner or alone except as taken by Wife or with Wife on the single occasion in which both parties participated." Schelske says he "regrets the incident but would state and show that Husband and Wife were acting as two consenting adults..."

Schelske seems to be answering Evans' claim that there are nude pictures of him in a state of arousal. Schelske appears to be conceding photos do indeed exist, but the photographer is Evans herself.

Schelske's allegations come exactly one week after Evans filed explosive divorce papers accusing him 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.

When this news broke, our local country radio station (WMZQ, Washington, D.C.) played back their DJ's interview with Sara some months ago. And Sara was going on and on about how a good marriage needed "sex, lots of sex!" While this may be true : > ) it seemed tacky to me that she seemed to be implying the frequency of her and her husband's intimacy - because in my experience, when people like to talk about how much they get, it usually means they ain't gettin' any or that something is definitely lacking. If I had heard this interview when it was first done, I would have said, "Red Flag City!!!"

I think that Sara showed really poor taste in telling on why she was getting a divorce, she says she wants to be there for her kids but by letting the public know her reasons , really made me re-think my opinion of her and her mothering skills and also I'm suspious that when she said her good-byes on the show she actually said she had hired Tony to plan herroutine for her tour next year. Now does that sound like a woman who's so upset that she's already planning her next tour???

I believe his story more than hers. And, the only 2 things I am surprised about is that she has not accused him of being a drunk or drug addict while molesting their children, and his assertions of her being a cold withdrawn ice queen in their sexless marriage... If she's not putting out and tending to his "needs" due to having a lover on the side... I couldn't blame him for straying... I'd do it in a heart beat... Like I've done to my "Ex.'s" of the past...

I think that when you lose touch with your partner meaning emotionally that you start to drift and that it becomes much easier to want to cheat or to even actually do it because you are craving attention which used to be there. I know that I used to think that cheating was the most awful thing you could do to someone behind their back and now at 33 I can't imagine not doing it. After you have children with someone and your relationship gets so "relaxed" in a way - it seems like when someone else pays attention to you and needs you and desires you that you'll cheat even if you aren't really cheating like through phone conversations, emails, instant messaging or text messages. I know I do and he has no idea that I do that either. So, my thing is don't judge someone until you've walked in their shoes. You never know where your life will take you.

I think she's trying a little too hard to make her husband look bad. And that alone makes everything kinda fishy. So far Im sideing with the husband too.

First I would like to say that whatever is going on with them should be between them and not the whole world and I agree with number 2 comment, it is the kids that will suffer. The adults will probably tons of money on this.
I always heard that there are always 3 sides to every story, hers, his and the truth!!!

Why is everyone calling her a bitch? Everyone knows that people in America have a slim chance of even making it through a relationship. Is it because she is a celebirty and everyone thinks that their perfect. She wanted a divorce. Everyone knows someone who has went through a divorce! So you guys are the bitches for calling someone a bitch for getting a divorce! To Sara: Good Luck and ignore all these dumb ass people because they dont know what their talking about!

I had suspected ( though you never know) it was one of those cases where a ( conservative religious nuts in this case makes it juicier) a couple had some adventerous sex consensually ( swinging, watching porn,taking pics)- Like A LOT ( most?) couples do. Then when one wants out she/he uses it against the other one and points fingers first.

I I think that this was not the way to handle a bad divorce,if the two stopped carring about one another,then why not just divorce,why all the name calling,and they are carring on like two very spoiled kid's,act like two adult's,and stop the mud dragging,I think that you two need to stop and think about the kid's,I came from a divorced home and it is real tough,I was 11 years old when my parent's split and there has not been a day that i wish that they had stayed please think of your kid's,may god be with you all........Mary

These things are none of our business and we should let the court decide. If we do, the children will be spared hearing awful things about their parents.
