ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) — The man who stole the show at the Sochi Olympics with his eye-catching outfits has split from his husband. Johnny Weir and Victor Voronov have decided to call it quits, the figure skating commentator announced on Twitter.

“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,” he wrote.

Even though this relationship didn’t work out, Weir, 29, let his fans know he hasn’t given up on love.

“No matter what, I am a cheerleader of love and partnership and creation. I am sad yet I am thankful that I was loved and that I could love,” he added.

The three-time U.S. champion married Voronov, a lawyer, in New York in 2011 on New Year’s Eve.

Voronov added that he was also shocked by the sudden end of his marriage.

“Shocked by the abrupt ending of my marriage and am dealing with the trauma including multiple things I am just now becoming aware of…,” he wrote.
