“After 14 years of marriage, and multiple affairs, I’ve decided enough is enough,” the choreographer, 36, told People on Saturday, November 7. “Gleb and I have created a family and multiple businesses together. But apparently, it just wasn’t enough to keep our marriage strong.”
Samodanova first announced the couple had split via Instagram Stories on Friday, November 6, writing that it was with her “deepest sadness” that their “road is coming to the end.” Savchenko, for his part, confirmed the breakup in a statement to Us Weekly, saying, “It is with a heavy heart that I tell you my wife and I are parting ways after 14 years of marriage.”
In her statement to People, Samodanova detailed her husband’s alleged affairs revealing that a “recent inappropriate relationship” was the reason for “turmoil” in their marriage. Together, they share daughters Olivia, 10, and Zlata, 3.
“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,” she added. “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.”
