After 14 years of marriage, professional dancers Elena Samodanova and Gleb Savchenko are separating amidst infidelity rumors.


For years, Gleb Savchenko and Elena Samodanova were a perfect match made in the entertainment world as they are both professional dancers and choreographers. However, their love story has come to an end.

Samodanova has reportedly filed for divorce in Los Angeles, a month after she announced her separation from Savchenko and accused him of being unfaithful. However, the pro-dancer has denied these allegations.

The pair are splitting after 14 years of marriage in which they were blessed with two daughters — Olivia and Zlata. In November, Savchenko told sources that he and his wife would continue to co-parent despite their separation.

[Savchenko] was rumored to be in an affair with his "DWTS" partner Chrishell Stause.


The "DWTS" star was reportedly spending quality time with his daughters on the day Samodanova filed for divorce. The news also came not long after the father-of-two was confirmed to be in a relationship with the actress Cassie Scerbo.


His soon-to-be ex-wife expressed her displeasure over his relationship with the actress during an Instagram live session with fans. She revealed that she was upset with the dancer, who was on vacation with Scerbo in Mexico at the time.


Samodanova's displeasure was further expressed in a statement she released to sources after Savchenko continued to deny the infidelity allegations. The mother-of-two's statement read:

"While he is vacationing in Mexico, I am placing all my energy in raising our children."

However, after the announcement of their separation on November 6, sources have claimed the father-of-two didn't have eyes for anything except his daughters, and he is very protective of them.


The 37-year-old was rumored to be in an affair with his "DWTS" partner Chrishell Stause. These rumors escalated after Samodanova expressed her heartache over the dancer's affair in a lengthy statement.

The mother-of-two accused her soon-to-be ex-husband of having multiple affairs during their marriage. She stated that his recent affair ruined their family and no woman should ever endure watching another woman seduce her spouse.

Savchenko revealed that he and Samodanova's marital issues were not associated with infidelity, and his relationship with Stause was only platonic. He also expressed his displeasure over the fact that his wife couldn't keep things private.
