Nobody was gossiping about them or speculating that they had split until she posted the video.
Vaitsekhovskaya posted about seeing her “favorite pairs skater with a new partner,” which was heavily implied to be Stolbova and that’s what started the speculation, which was before the video came out.

I think that's they key and that's why the split wouldn't surprise me . Other couples with more affective ties/relationships trie to solve their problems and work together towards a mutual goal, specially when they have already acheaved a certain level. So yeah, maybe they never "clashed" but their relationship was also so cold than it wouldnt be a problem for Ksenia to dump him or viceversa if any of them thinks things are not working anymore.
I can agree they aren't all lovey-dovey, but I wouldn't describe their relationship as cold. There seems to be a certain level of affection between them; one of my friends saw them at the airport and she said Fedor was carrying Ksenia's luggage for her, and also he always hugs her when she is upset over a bad skate. I think they care about each other as human beings but have little in common, so you don't see them hanging out off the ice.

Sometimes you can be in a relationship with a person you care about, but you realize it's not going to work (it's long-distance, you want kids and the other person doesn't, etc). You can break up with someone because you want them to be happy and you know you can't be that special someone for them. Listen to "I will always love you" by Whitney Houston and you'll get the idea :D

Anyways, I really think they worked better together than the media would like to say.

You’re dead to me. :drama: (Although I do admit I Have Nothing or I Learned from the best are my go-to Whitney ballads).
I Have Nothing is just as annoying :blah:. I haven't heard the other :shuffle:

Just listen to the original by Dolly Parton
That version is much better I admit, but still not my cup of tea.

Then try "Already Gone" by Kelly Clarkson.
*pukes* I'd rather listen to Whitney. At least she had a voice :p

Ok enough off topic :D Any confirmation on the split or not???

Hopefully. Klimov is not talented enough for her. She has no future with him.
Actually, I think Fedor has great talent (excellent skating skills, great feet in the lifts, consistent jumps). It's Ksenia who struggles with the technical elements. Fedor may not have Ksenia's bada$$ diva power, and he does struggle with twist, but he gets most of the job done and that's more than you can say for a lot of pair guys. In the words of John Coughlin, "She's amazing, but he's no slouch."

(And as a Savchenko/Massot fan, I think you know something about how somewhat unevenly matched pairs can still be great and successful).

She is skating with someone new, and it's not Evgeni. He's kind of a tall red-head. And things aren't going super smoothly yet, at least from what I saw. Not Rogonov either unless my eyes have gotten especially bad.

Makes one wonder if she intends to compete with him as well, I mean there is no way that Russia will release her to France and I don't see France releasing him to Russia either, at least not easily.
From what I heard, Abachkina and Drozd might be trying out together. People think that Drozd will be released to France and Novoselov will be released to Russia. Of course, just rumor.
