Evans To Speak Out About Divorce Drama

LATEST: Country star SARA EVANS has taped a short TV interview to explain her reasons for pulling out of US reality show DANCING WITH THE STARS. The singer quit the show after news of her impending divorce from CRAIG SCHELSKE broke last week (beg09OCT06) and she has since spoken little of her personal problems. Meanwhile, her Dancing With The Stars rivals are supporting Evans' decision to leave the show. Actor JOSEPH LAWRENCE says, "I respect her because she puts her family first. Nothing is more paramount than that and I couldn't agree with her decision more." And MARIO LOPEZ also offers his support: "Sara's a wonderful person. I love her." The troubled singer is also receiving notes of support from her peers in country music. Pal TIM MCGRAW tells US news show ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, "I'm friends with her and her husband. It's none of my business but I wish the best for them." In court papers filed last week, Evans alleges verbal abuse, harassment, excessive consumption of alcohol and adultery for the reasons behind her decision to divorce Schelske. She claims her husband has been storing personal ads looking for sex from website Craigslist.com on his personal computer. As the couple prepare to wage a war for custody of their kids, Schelske has spoken out, stating, "Sara and our three children are the most important people in my life. I have made the decision to forgive Sara for the unfortunate campaign that she and her publicity advisors are currently waging. "I adamantly deny the allegations that are being made. As distressing as it is to have to communicate about this matter publicly, Sara has unfortunately become a dramatically different person over the last year and it is something we have struggled to deal with. Sadly, it appears we have failed."
