Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko had an affair while working together during season 23 of Dancing With the Stars.
The two previously worked together in 2016 when she was separated from Mike Caussin due to him needing treatment for sex addiction. The couple got back together in 2017 but split for good in 2021 after he cheated on her again. At the same time, Savchenko was married to Elena Samodanova.
In her book, The Good Fight, Kramer confessed to having “flings and flirts” during their split, stating, “I never truly thought I did anything wrong. Correction. I knew it was wrong; I just didn’t want to be the bad guy. I justified my actions in my mind just as I suppose Mike had done all along too.”
Savchenko and Samodanova split in November 2020 after she alleged he had an affair. Her rep claimed, “It’s no secret that Gleb has had affairs with former dance partners — and who knows who else.”
Schinelli claims, “Jana has admitted to me that she slept with two guys while Mike was in rehab. She slept with Gleb. She justified it saying, ‘We were legally separated.'”
He added, “She even tried to meet up with Gleb while we were dating. He was doing a show in Nashville and she asked me if it was OK if she met up with him. I said, ‘As long as there was nothing there anymore,’ and she said, ‘No.’ She never went and said it was out of respect for me.”
