On Friday night, the Russian dancer announced on his Instagram page that he and his wife, Elena Samodanova, had chosen to end their marriage.

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you my wife and I are parting ways after 14 years of marriage,” he explained. “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.”

Shortly after his announcement, Chrishell shared a post on her Instagram story, hitting back at claims that she and Glen were anything more than friends and dance partners.

“I am so saddened about the news of Gleb and Elena’s split,” she wrote. “It is unfortunate that this has caused rumours to swirl about my personal life. Having gone through a public split myself, I would not wish this on anyone.

“As you can imagine, the countless hours of training and dance rehearsals created a strong supportive friendship, but nothing more. I wish nothing but the best for both Gleb and Elena during this unfortunate time.”
