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

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

    Kwan is a five-time world figure skating champion, winning Olympic medals in 1998 and 2002. Pell is a grandson of Rhode Island's late Democratic U.S. Sen. Claiborne Pell, and he unsuccessfully ran for governor in 2014.

    The two married in Providence in 2013.

    Alex and Maia Shibutani were scanning the crowd before their performance in the ice dance competition at the Olympic Winter Games when they saw a familiar face, "SNL" star Leslie Jones. After that, the "Shib Sibs" took the ice and won a bronze medal.

    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 and is a registered voter in the state.

    Neither Kwan nor Pell returned phone calls seeking comment.
