Gleb Savchenko from Dancing with the Stars Splits from Wife Elena Samodanova After 14 Years of Marriage

Gleb Savchenko and his wife are splitting up. This last Friday Elena took the news to her Instagram story that she is splitting from her husband after 14 years of marriage. In that time from 2006 when they wed, they have shared two children, two daughters Olivia and Zlata.

“After 14 years of marriage, with my deepest sadness, our road is coming to an end,” she said. She also included plenty of emoticons.

Gleb also released a full statement concerning the breakup.

“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.”

Gleb Savchenko’s marriage is no more?

Back in 2018, they both opened their own dancing studio together. Pro Dance LA, it was called. At the time, they were celebrating 12 happy years together.

“We opened a dance studio. It’s a dream for all dancers, when you’ve been training since you were very young,” Gleb said.

“My present, from him to me. [It’s a dream] to pass the knowledge to young generations and people who love to dance. You can start dancing at any time — five years to 100 years old,” Elena said.

According to Gleb, the secret to their marriage was “letting her do what she wants.”

“Happy wife, happy life. I’ve been saying it for a very long time! Everybody knows it, but sometimes nobody follows that, but I do! She wanted a dance studio, here you go! You want to go to work and teach kids, here!” Gleb said at the time, “I have the best wife because she’s very supportive. She supports what I do, we do the same thing. It’s kind of having the same goals. She has crazy ideas, and I say, ‘Let’s make it happen.’ But she is the one who kind of starts it all.”

Fans are waiting to hear how this all will go now that the two are split up. We’ll update this article if we hear anything more.
