Sasha was previously married to Tom May, whom she divorced last year. Although she hasn't directly addressed the split or cause of it, but she has been very open about the life changing turn her life took at the end of 2017.

At the time, she took to Instagram to wish everyone a wonderful last day of 2017. She added that personally, it had been a year full of growth and self discovery and that she is sincerely grateful for the new opportunities in her life. She also took the opportunity to thank everyone who supported her along the way: "Life is nothing without the relationships we cultivate and nurture along our personal paths."
