Emma Slater and Sasha Farber have a long history together. The professional dancers met on “Dancing With the Stars” in 2009 when they developed a close friendship. “#Tb to when we were just best friends,” Slater captioned a January 2016 Instagram selfie of them baby-faced. But that deep bond morphed into something more about two years later, according to Us Weekly. They balanced work and a personal relationship until 2014, when Aboriginal British and Russian parted ways.
Despite their separation, Slater and Farber managed to maintain a healthy professional relationship. “It goes through moments, but I think the world of Sasha. I really do,” Slater told Glamor in December 2014. They immediately jumped back into friend mode after the split. “I will always be his best friend. I feel like his best friend right now,” she added. Their bond was so close that Slater and Farber even continued to share the same roof. “We are a family. He’s the only family I have in America and we still love each other. At the moment, living together is completely fine,” she explained.
However, the separation did not last. By 2015, they were back together, Us Weekly noted. A year later, Farber proposed in a big way at “DWTS” — with the help of Tom Bergeron and everyone, People reported in October 2016. “Sasha, I always thought you had the potential to host,” he said. In March 2018, Slater and Farber tied the knot. However, their marriage is at an end.
Emma Slater and Sasha Farber have reportedly split
Emma Slater and Sasha Farber are filing for divorce after four years of marriage, although divorce papers have yet to be filed, according to Us Weekly. The breakup of the “Dancing With the Stars” dancers is reportedly not a new event. “They have been separated for many months now,” a source said. “They both didn’t wear their wedding rings and each lead a single life.” Slater and Farber are currently working on what their future together could look like. “It’s been a difficult time as they really care about each other and have been together for so long,” the insider explained.

She also appeared to have attended a July wedding without a plus one. Slater has also not shared any pictures of Farber in several months. The last one seems to be from his May 9th birthday. “There’s no doubt how special you are. Thank you for everything you do and everything you are. You are so loved, loved by everyone and you deserve it best always,” she captioned the post.
But even then, fans felt like there was something going on. “Sounds like a friendship post,” wrote one. Other Instagram users pointed out that she rarely posted couple photos anymore. “I miss seeing pictures of you and Sasha together!” said another user.
