Olympic skater Michelle Kwan and her husband file for divorce

Olympic figure skater Michelle Kwan, 36, has filed papers in Rhode Island seeking divorce days after her husband, Clay Pell, 35, filed for divorce in California.

Kwan is a five-time world figure skating champion, winning Olympic medals in 1998 and 2002.

The Providence Journal  reports both listed irreconcilable differences in their divorce papers.

Pell filed for divorce March 27, while Kwan filed March 30.

Pell is a grandson of Rhode Island’s late Democratic U.S. Sen. Claiborne Pell, and he himself unsuccessfully ran for governor in 2014.

The two married in Providence in 2013.

Court records show Pell wants the Rhode Island filing to be dismissed so the divorce can be heard in California.

Kwan objects, saying she lived in Rhode Island for the past year.

The couple has no children.

Kwan spent part of last year working for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Court records seen by the Providence Journal indicate that Kwan tried and failed to serve Pell with divorce papers ten times in April.

Ultimately the court documents were tacked to the front door.
