Olympian Johnny Weir and Husband Split (VIDEO)

Super bummer today for Olympian figure skater Johnny Weir and his husband, Victor Vonorov: The couple has officially decided to go their separate ways, according to Johnny’s recent tweet confirming the news.

“It is with great sadness that I announce that my husband and I are no longer together. My heart hurts, and I wish him well,” Johnny tweeted. “No matter what, I am a cheerleader of love and partnership and creation. I am sad yet thankful that I was loved and that I could love.”

Johnny and Victor, a Russian lawyer, were married on December 30, 2011, according to US Weekly. This was a huge step for the couple, as Johnny told Access Hollywood that Victor didn’t come out of the closet until about a month before the wedding.

And for them, marriage was quite an adjustment. “I’m such an OCD, solitary, confined person that it was very hard to open my life and my home and in some ways my closet to somebody else,” Johnny said. “We are both consistently fighting to wear the pants in the relationship.”

Sometimes the best decision you can make in a relationship is to end it, and hopefully splitting will prove to be a positive decision for both Johnny and Victor as they move on without each other.
