‘DWTS’ pro Gleb Savchenko splits with Elena Belle after nearly 3 years of dating

Gleb Savchenko is officially single again.

The “Dancing With the Stars” pro and his longtime girlfriend, Elena Belle, have called it quits after nearly three years of dating.

“Yes, Elena and I broke up about a month ago,” Savchenko exclusively tells Page Six. “It kind of just happened. People always say life happens and sometimes I think, ‘How did it even happen?’”

“Elena and I broke up about a month ago,” he shared, noting that sometimes things “just happen.”
Savchenko said the two “had an amazing time together” and that he “still very much loves” her to this day.

The professional dancer, 40, had been dating the Swedish model (real name: Natacha Peyre Requena), 39, since August 2021. He told us the two “had an amazing time together” and that he “still very much loves” her to this day.

“She’s an amazing mom, she’s an amazing person and everything. It’s just the timing,” he said of Belle, who is mom to daughter Luna from her previous marriage to late husband Michael Theanne.

“We had been together for almost three years and I had, like, the best time of my life with her. There’s certain things that just didn’t work out.”

Savchenko made the revelation while talking to Page Six about his upcoming Chippendale’s gig, which kicks off April 25 in Las Vegas. While he’s planning to remain fully focused on work right now, he told us the new job had nothing to do with the breakup.

“I wish her all the best and I’m sure she’ll be fine. She’s a super hot girl and everything,” he gushed, calling Belle the “total package” and a “dream” girl. “She’s awesome. I’m gonna miss her a lot.”

Savchenko will be serving as a celebrity guest host and dancer with the Chippendale’s for a limited run in both Vegas and Atlantic City, NJ. He told us saying “yes” to the gig felt “natural” and was an “absolute no-brainer,” joking, “Everyone knows I’m a great dancer … but the moment my shirt comes off, the crowd goes wild!”

The Russian native jumped right into training just days after wrapping the “Dancing With the Stars” live 2024 tour, which hit over 70 cities across the US.

“I wish I had time to unwind! Last Wednesday was my last show and then I flew to Vegas on Friday to meet [the Chippendale’s team] and see my new office,” he revealed. “I’m very grateful to have this experience again. I always say that the most rewarding thing for me, on tour, is to be able to connect to fans. Like when they see us performing live … it’s insane. The energy in the room goes wild.”

Savchenko told Page Six that he had his first official Chippendale’s rehearsal on Monday with famed choreographer Dana Wilson. Her impressive resume includes working alongside artists like Justin Timberlake, Kesha and Miley Cyrus, choreographing for “In the Heights,” “Elvis” and more.

“I’m super excited because Chippendale’s just celebrated their 45th anniversary, which is iconic. And their show, which I’m joining, they just celebrated 22 years on that very stage in that theater,” he said of the Chippendale’s Theater at Rio Hotel.

“When I got the opportunity, I was like, ‘This is the perfect thing, what the fans have been waiting for.’ I’m actually doing it for the fans.”

Aside from his show schedule, Savchenko hopes to spend the rest of 2024 working, traveling and spending time with his two kids, daughters Olivia and Zlata, whom he shares with ex Elena Samodanova.

He’s also hoping to return for the next season of “Dancing With the Stars” this fall – if, of course, he receives the call to come back from producers.

“I haven’t won the mirrorball trophy yet, so the mirrorball is in my dreams, in my manifestations and in my mediation practices that I’m doing every single day,” he told us, laughing. “So yes, I want to come back and do a great job and win the mirrorball.”

He added, “I’m definitely not hanging up my dancing shoes yet. I still have at least three, four seasons in me, for sure.”

Savchenko also noted that he plans to have a few familiar faces from “DWTS” in the audience at his various Chippendale’s shows – and may even bring some of them up on stage.

“Within the show, there are definitely a few dance-off contests and it gets pretty wild on stage,” he teased. “So yes, for sure, I’ll definitely bring someone out on stage for the twerking competition or the ‘what’s your favorite sexual position’ [segment].”
