Splitsville for Weir's marriage
There's trouble in Johnny Weir's life. The 29-year-old figure skater has filed for divorce from spouse Victor Voronov after 27 months, the Coatesville native announced via Twitter on Thursday.
"It is with great sadness that I announce that my husband and I are no longer together," Weir said.
"I have been sad for a long time. . . . And unfortunately don't foresee a way to resolve our current marital issues."
Though he never actively worked to conceal his sexuality, Weir did not publicly come out as a gay man until January 2011. Eleven months later, on New Year's Eve, he wed Voronov in a civil ceremony in New York. Weir called it "the greatest moment in my life."
