Controversial Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir announced on Twitter yesterday that he and husband Victor Voronov are calling it quits after two years of marriage:


Access Hollywood, which is airing an exclusive interview with Weir about the divorce tonight, reports:

"It is with great sadness that I announce that my husband and I are no longer together," the ice skater and TV personality said in a statement to Access. The 29-year-old said their future together does not look promising.

"I have been sad for a long time," he continued in the statement to Access. "And unfortunately don't foresee a way to resolve our current marital issues." The couple, who got married on New Year's Eve in 2011, does not have a prenup.

The news comes two weeks after the couple appeared in court together and successfully asked a judge to dismiss a domestic biting charge Voronov had previously filed against Weir. At the time, the couple appeared to have worked out their differences.

No matter how necessary a divorce may be (and they often are), they're never fun. I'm sorry for the pain that Weir and Voronov are going through.
