Everyone has fallen in love with Dancing With The Stars pro Gleb Savchenko since he appeared on the show back in season 12. The Russian dancer just announced that he and his wife of 14 years Elena Samodanova have split. She went on to post a heartbreaking quote on Instagram.

‘DWTS’ Pro Gleb Savchenko And Wife Elena Samodanova Have Split

Elena who has choreographed the Fox show So You Think You Can Dance posted the sad news on her Instagram story writing a caption on a picture of the pair. “After 14 years of marriage with my deepest sadness our road is coming to the end,” she wrote. The ‘DWTS’ Russia judge also posted a broken heart emoji. But that’s not all. She posted a cryptic quote with another broken heart emoji. “I don’t hate you. I’m just disappointed you turned into everything you said you’d never be” the quote says.


Though there has not been a reason given as to why the pair are splitting, people in the comments section are wondering why. “I hope his Dancing With The Stars partner had nothing to do with this,” wrote one person on the post. Gleb was recently eliminated from season 29 of Dancing With The Stars with his partner Chrishell Stause who also just went through a sudden divorce from This Is Us actor Justin Hartley.

It was previously reported that Chrishell and Gleb had gotten into a fight on the ‘DWTS’ set which resulted in him sending her flowers weeks before their elimination. It is unclear what the fight was about. “We both care so much and I love the passion he brings to what he does” she captioned a post where she posed with the flowers. “We are working on me picking up some of his strict Russian nature, and I am softening him up with a little southern charm. Finding the balance landed us here and I truly think this could be our best week yet.”


Gleb Posted A Family Photo And Confirmed The Split On His Instagram

The pair are parents to two daughters Olivia, 10 and Zlata, 3. He posted a picture of the family on Instagram with a caption announcing the split. “It is with a heavy heart that I tell you my wife and I are parting ways after 14 years of marriage” he wrote. “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.”


In the past, Gleb was questioned for his chemistry with former Dancing With The Stars partner Jana Kramer. The pair maintained that they were just strictly dance partners, and he went on to say that Elena was his “perfect woman.”
