Elena Samodanova is speaking on her split from husband, “Dancing With the Stars” pro Gleb Savchenko following rumors of the dancer getting a little too close to on-screen partner, Chrishell Stause.
“After 14 years of marriage, and multiple affairs, I’ve decided enough is enough,” Samodanova, 36, told People, adding that her trust in him is “irrevocably broken” after a series of “ongoing” infidelities.
“Gleb and I have created a family and multiple businesses together. But apparently, it just wasn’t enough to keep our marriage strong,” she continued. “Gleb’s ongoing infidelity and a recent inappropriate relationship has created turmoil in our marriage and absolutely torn our family apart.”
“No wife should ever stand by and watch while another woman gifts her husband expensive presents, lures him out to dinners and seduces him at every turn,” Samodanova went on. “Last night was the final straw, and I can no longer turn my head the other way. My trust in Gleb is irrevocably broken and it is time that I walk away and begin to heal so I can be the best version of myself for my girls.”
Gleb later responded to his estranged wife’s claim.
“While I will continue to respect the privacy of my family, I will not stand by and allow false accusations and internet rumors go unaddressed,” he said in a statement from his rep. “My relationship with Chrishell was and remains strictly platonic. Our friendship during our season on ‘DWTS’ was not the reason for our split. Elena and I have had longstanding issues in our marriage. This has been an ongoing situation between Elena and I paired with poor timing. It was my deepest hope to keep our private life just that: private. I am saddened and disappointed to see that Elena has chosen not to do the same.”
Samodanova announced that she and Savchenko were parting ways on social media on Friday. They got married in 2006 and share two children, daughters Olivia and Zlata.
“After 14 years of marriage with my deepest sadness out road is coming to the end,” she wrote on her Instagram story, also posting to her feed, “i don’t hate you. i’m just disappointed you turned into everything you said you’d never be.”
