The following day, Gleb confirmed the split. In a statement on his Instagram, he said, “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.

The news comes four months after they celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary. In July, Gleb showed some love for Elena, writing on Instagram, “Two souls but with a single thought, two hearts that beat as one. Happy 14th Anniversary my love ❤️ @elenasamodanova.”
In September, Elena gushed about Gleb on his birthday, writing on Instagram, “Happy birthday to the most awesome, wonderful, outrageously funny, courageous, handsome and great hubby you are… @glebsavchenkoofficial #love #family #husband.”
Just days ago, “Extra's” Rachel Lindsay caught up with Gleb and his “Dancing with the Stars” partner Chrishell Stause after they were sent home. When Rachel asked what Chrishell will miss most about the show, Gleb joked, “Obviously, me.”
