The ballroom professionals tied the knot in July 2006. According to her submission to the court, Samodanova believes her estranged husband is more than capable of supporting both children and spouse as he “earns an approximate annual salary of $ 406,614” the stars, or 33,884, through his work on Dancing With $ per month.
Samodanova, for her part, is “unemployed” and makes her the “only source of income” of the dance studio that she and Savchenko own. The studio “generates $ 37,250 per year” or $ 3,105 per month but has been closed since February due to the coronavirus pandemic. According to the records, Samodanova wants to ensure that she and her children can continue to enjoy a “high standard of living” after the divorce.

As already reported by us, Samodanova claimed: “[Savchenko] hasn’t rented an apartment in the weeks since their separation ”and essentially crashes with his friend on a“ bachelorette party ”. After several visits to the apartment, the Russian-born woman argued that this was “not a safe environment” for her young daughters and called for “continued primary custody of the children visiting the apartment [Savchenko]until he secures adequate accommodation for himself and the children. “
Shortly after the two announced they would go their separate ways, some fans wondered if Savchenko’s close bond with his season 29 DWTS partner Chrishell reservoirhad something to do with his breakup. Both the choreographer and the 39-year-old Selling Sunset star denied the infidelity rumors. Earlier this month, Savchenko doubled his stance after spending a couple’s vacation with a new flame Cassie Scerbo, Stause and her friend, Keo Motsepe.
“We’ve had problems for years,” Savchenko told Entertainment Tonight of his estranged wife. “I was in a mentally abusive, jealous relationship. … The thing is, I never betrayed her. Never in my life. “
