Elena Samodanova Split with Husband Gleb Savchenko
Elena turned heads when she announced that she would be splitting with her 14 yearlong husbands, Gleb Savchenko.

Moreover, Elena announced the split just days after Gleb was eliminated from the show along with his partner, Selling Sunset Chrishell Stause. Likewise, Elena announced the news of her separation on November of 2020. She shared,
“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 added claiming that the dancer has been seeing another woman.
Elena and her husband had been together for 14 years after they tied the knot in 2004. Likewise, they also share two daughters, Olivia, 9, and Zlata, 3.

Moreover, his alleged mistress, Chrishell also shared thoughts on the split, writing,
“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,”
