They’re more than just dance partners. Multiple sources exclusively tell Us Weekly that Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko hooked up while filming season 23 of Dancing With the Stars.
In 2016, the One Tree Hill veteran, 38, and the professional dancer, also 38, collaborated. Savchenko was married to Elena Samodanova when she was separated from her now ex-husband Mike Caussin, who was seeking treatment for sex addiction at the time.
“I never honestly thought I did anything wrong,” Kramer admitted in the former couple’s 2020 book, The Good Fight, that she had some “flings and flirts” during their breakup. Correction. I knew it was wrong, but I didn’t want to be the one who did it. In my head, I excused my conduct, just as I’m sure Mike had done all along.”
When Savchenko and Samodanova, who have two daughters together, announced their divorce in November 2020, she claimed her husband had been unfaithful during their marriage, which he disputed. In December 2020, her rep said, “It’s no secret that Gleb has had affairs with former dancing partners – and who knows who else.” (Representatives for Kramer and Savchenko declined to comment on the affair allegations.)
In December 2017, Kramer and Caussin reconciled and renewed their vows. When he allegedly cheated on her again in April 2021, the couple, who had daughter Jolie, 5, and son Jace, 3, divorced for forever. After dating Ian Schinelli for six months, the “Story” singer called it quits in April.
“Jana has acknowledged to me that when Mike was in recovery, she slept with two different males.” Schinelli told Us, “She slept with Gleb.” “‘We were legally separated,’ she rationalised it.”
“She even tried to meet up with Gleb when we were dating,” the former Navy Seal continued. He was performing in Nashville, and she asked if she might meet up with him. ‘As long as there was nothing there anymore,’ I responded, to which she replied, ‘No.’ She never went out of her way to say it was because she respected me.”
“I haven’t revealed much more about this separation since Ian lied about sleeping on his ex-wife, and I was attempting to protect her.” “I was attempting to preserve her anonymity since she had become a friend of mine, but she has now granted me permission to speak on her behalf,” Kramer told Us earlier this month. “Ian is enraged that his lies have been discovered, and he is now altering the story.” I’ve since learned from a number other ladies that I wasn’t the only one throughout our relationship, but I’m happy to be moving on with my life, and I hope he does as well.”
