After 14 years of marriage, Gleb Savchenko and Elena Samodanova have called it quits. Elena is being open about the decision she says stemmed from his infidelity.
Gleb, who is a Dancing With the Stars choreographer, took to social media to announce the end of his marriage.
He shared a photo of his family alongside a caption that read: ‘It is with a heavy heart that I tell you my wife and I are parting ways after 14 years of marriage. We still intend to co-parent our wonderful children together who we love so dearly, and we will strive to continue to be the best parents that we can to them. We ask that you respect our family’s need for privacy and healing during this time.’
It seems that Elena doesn’t mind the public’s questions about what made the union that lasted a decade break up out of seemingly nowhere. Samodanova gave an exclusive interview with People Magazine where she revealed that her soon-to-be ex-husband has been cheating on her.
‘After 14 years of marriage, and multiple affairs, I’ve decided enough is enough. Gleb and I have created a family and multiple businesses together. But apparently, it just wasn’t enough to keep our marriage strong. Gleb’s ongoing infidelity and a recent inappropriate relationship has created turmoil in our marriage and absolutely torn our family apart,’ she told People Magazine about her husband seeing another woman.
Many people have picked up on the chemistry between Gleb and his dancing partner Chrishell Stause. There is speculation that she may be the other woman.

She took to Instagram to make it clear that there is nothing more going on.
‘I am so saddened about the news of Gleb and Elena’s split. It is unfortunate that this has caused rumors to swirl about my personal life. Having gone through a public split myself, I would not wish this on anyone. As you can imagine, the countless hours of training, and dance rehearsals has created a strong supportive friendship, but nothing more. I wish nothing but the best for both Gleb and Elena during this unfortunate time.’
There is also a rumor that Gleb may be dating another one of his former partners on the show — the recently single Erika Jayne of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
