“Dancing With the Stars” professional dancers Emma Slater and Sasha Farber have been married for four years, although the couple recently called it quits, according to reports.
In August 2022, multiple sources spoke to E! Online and Us Weekly confirmed that Farber and Slater were no longer together, although they have not yet filed divorce papers.
Slater and Farber have been together since 2011 and broke up for a short period in 2014 before getting engaged in 2016. They have been married since 2018.
“They’ve been apart for months,” a source told Us Weekly. “They both haven’t worn their wedding rings and each has one life.”
Both Slater and Farber are professional dancers on season 31 of “Dancing With the Stars,” meaning they still spend time together after the split was confirmed.
On September 16, 2022, Slater and Farber were seen for the first time since their apparent split in photos published by Us Weekly. In the photos, the two were taking a walk with Farber’s “Dancing With the Stars” partner Selma Blair.
Slater is teaming up with TV star Trevor Donovan for the upcoming season, and she’s proud of his progress so far.
“I’m just TOO PROUD of my partner @trevordonovan right now,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a series of snaps of the duo. “Don’t miss our quickstep and the @dancingwiththestars premiere.”
Farber is equally proud of his partner, who agreed to enter the ballroom dance competition, fully acknowledging that she has MS and may be struggling in ways other competitors won’t.
“Every day in our rehearsals is a miracle, and every day is a gift that you keep giving. We always end the training day with a hug,” Farber wrote. “@SelmaBlair you are breaking boundaries and inspiring me more than I could have ever imagined. To me you are already a champion when you step into the studio. I am so looking forward to Monday night.”
According to the source who spoke to Us Weekly in late August 2022, the two hope to remain friends and “continue to work together as professional dancers.”
The pair have been the subject of speculation since season 30 of “Dancing With the Stars” aired, as neither had posted the other on social media for nearly a year. They were also not photographed together and fans noticed that they did not wish each other happy birthday.
“It’s been a tough time because they really care about each other and have been together for so long,” the source told Us Weekly, adding that they’re “figuring out” their relationship.
However, they still choreograph together. They appeared together as choreographers on multiple episodes of “So You Think You Can Dance” season 17. The source also acknowledged that the two “continue to work together as professional dancers…they are professionals and will not let their personal lives get in the way.” of ‘DWTS’.”
Slater and Farber have not publicly commented on their split, although fans have suspected for some time that the two were no longer together.
