Johnny Weir, husband Victor Voronov call it quits

U.S figure skater Johnny Weir is single again.

The 29-year-old Olympic athlete and his husband, Georgetown Law graduate Victor Voronov, have parted ways after almost 2 1/2 years of marriage.

Weir and Voronov wed in a December 2011 civil ceremony in New York. At the time, the couple took on the surname Weir-Voronov, but the skater has already gone back to using just "Weir" on his Twitter account.
