SCERBO'S RELATIONSHIP WITH SAVCHENKO
Scerbo and Savchenko's relationship was first brought to most people's attention when Entertainment Tonight reported that the couple has been dating for a couple of weeks.
This report was corroborated when the "DWTS" dancer and the actress both uploaded images of them vacationing together on their respective Instagram pages.

In one of the pictures Scerbo shared from the getaway, she looked adorable in a lovely and colorful gown as she rested her body on a keyboard. The "Make It or Break It" actress captioned the post:
"Happy girls are the prettiest ???✨"
GLEB SAVCHENKO'S BREAK-UP
Many were surprised to hear the news about the demise of Savchenko's marriage to ex Elena Samodanova. However, the surprise became even more heightened when about a month after the news of their split, Samodanova filed for divorce.
However, to some, this is not news. The couple is said to have been having issues for quite some time now. Talking about what led to the end of the marriage, Samodanova claimed that her husband was unfaithful to her during the course of their 14 years of marriage.
During a recent Instagram Live session with her fans, Samodanova took to her Instagram page to bear it all out as she called out her husband.
She pleaded with her fans not to give men second chances since, according to her, they are all the same. Samodanova also claimed that she gave Savchenko many chances, eventually leading them to where they are now.
She went on to state that she'd rather be happy alone than be miserable in a relationship. She also stated that she doesn't believe in the concept of Prince Charming anymore.
Savchenko denied the claims of infidelity made by his wife and even took to his Instagram stories to share a cryptic message about how people should hear both sides of a story before making conclusions.
However, things got worse when Samodanova filed for divorce in Los Angeles on Tuesday. After news of this got out, the dance pro released a statement to ET saying he and his wife had decided to go their separate ways.
His statement further iterated that they would do their best always to put their kids first and do what's best for them while being the best parents they can be.
Savchenko married Samodanova in 2006, at the age of 23. The two met as dance partners and hit it off right after. They were married for 14 years, and together they share two daughters, Olivia and Zlata.
