Johnny Weir found a perfect pairing with new partner-in-crime Tara Lipinski at the Sochi Olympics this year, but his home life has been decidedly less joyful.
The Olympic figure skater has separated from his husband, Victor Voronov, after more than two years of marriage, TMZ reports. Weir announced the news of Twitter:
“No matter what, I am a cheerleader of love and partnership and creation,” he also wrote. “I am sad yet I am thankful that I was loved and that I could love.”
Weir teamed up with Lipinski as commentators at the Olympics this year, quickly becoming fan favorites and taking their shtick to the talk show circuit and even the Oscars.
There is speculation that Weir’s full dance card left little time for their marriage, and the separation ultimately became too much.
Weir and Lipinski also appeared in a fun segment on the new “Late Night with Seth Meyers” earlier this month, hilariously critiquing the styles of the skaters at 30 Rockefeller Center.
It’s unclear what their next move is, but we’re thinking talk show! What do you think Tara and Johnny should do next? Sound off in the comments!
