Johnny Weir Announces Split From Husband Victor Weir-Voronov

Johnny Weir and his husband, Victor Weir-Voronov, have separated.

The Olympic figure skating star and reality TV veteran, 29, took to Twitter to confirm the news, first reported by TMZ, Wednesday afternoon:

Further details were scarce, but as Philly.com pointed out, Weir's Twitter handle has been changed from "Weir-Voronov" back to "Weir."

News of the split comes just weeks after Weir reportedly appeared in a New Jersey courtroom on charges of domestic violence against his husband. At the time, Weir-Voronov asked the judge to dismiss the charges, in which he alleged that Weir had bitten him during a dispute, according to Radar Online. The dismissal was granted, according to the report.

Meanwhile, Weir, who received positive notices after joining NBC as a commentator during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, told Access Hollywood last month that his marriage was "constant fireworks," adding, "We're both constantly trying to fight to wear the pants in the relationship."

The couple tied the knot on New Year's Eve in 2011 in New York.
