Eleanor Srugo, the woman accused of having a romantic relationship with the former fiancé of “Bachelorette” star Claire Crowley Dale Moss, says that she is not the reason for the recent separation of the former couple.
“Dale and Eleanor have been and have been platonic friends for several years,” her spokesman Ron Torosyan told Page Six on Friday. “They have never been romantically involved in any way. She was excited about his engagement and wished him all the best. “
The publicist explained, “They have never participated in meetings – or romantically – in any way. All allegations that date or have been romantically involved are outright lies. “
Rumors first started swirling after E! News reports that New York-based real estate agent Srugo has “sneaked with Dale”
An unnamed source told the publication that Crowley had seen evidence of Moss and Srugo together, but the publication did not describe what the evidence said.
Moss and Crowley, meanwhile, have kept quiet about rumors of fraud, but reality stars have issued a statement announcing their separation.
Moss, 32, was the first to confirm the split, saying it was the couple’s “healthiest solution.” The 39-year-old Crowley revealed on Instagram that she was “crushed” and “needs some time to really absorb it”.
The couple’s whirlwind affair lasted only five months. Moss proposed to Crowley on Season 16 of The Bachelorette last year after the couple met on the ABC dating show and had known each other for only a few short weeks.
Moss and Crowley did not immediately return our requests for comment.
