It looks like Johnny Weir's relationship with his husband is on extremely thin ice.

The Olympic figure skater took to Twitter yesterday to announce that he and his husband, Victor Voronov, have split. "It is with great sadness that I announce that my husband and I are no longer together," Weir tweeted. "My heart hurts, and I wish him well."

Weir and Voronov, an attorney, were married in a New York civil ceremony in 2011. The former skater called their wedding "the greatest moment in my life."

Earlier this month, Radar Online reported the couple appeared in a New Jersey court when Weir faced charges of biting Voronov during a domestic dispute. A judge dismissed the case at their request March 5.

Weir, who got plenty of attention for his colorful commentary and even more colorful outfits at the Sochi Olympics last month, had legally changed his last name to Weir-Voronov. His Twitter handle has changed back to Johnny Weir.
