Where does it say he's single? The only 'source' I could find was the G & G Corner , saying some other 'source' said he & Katia had separated.

I agree with John. Ilia has said absolutely nothing on the topic; Katia has referred to him recently as her husband (in interviews). He is listed in her new bio for Ice Age and she's still listed in his last season's bio for SOI. Leaving it alone is definitely the way to go because there is nothing but gossip (or old info or second-hand info or sheer speculation) on this topic.
who's thrilled that people are getting in line - ain't it fun?!!

If he adds a 3A or two, Ilia would probably be competitive with the top men today...

I would be very upset if the above that we are not supposed to talk about is true.

Have to agree, Leo on Ice does better than EVAH!
Definitely THE highlight of the show(s).

Well, all of you who are falling in love with Ilya again, make room for me! What a spectacular presence he is. Rock-solid technique, musicality, wizard footwork (a particular fave element of mine), and it certainly doesn't hurt that he's drop-dead, Greek-god gorgeous. I will revise my swoon list immediately.

Interview of Ilia Kulik at 2:16
I posted it at IAS 2009 thread and also here.
His performances were really really dramatic!!!
The cartwheel was wow
Hope to see him again!
Ilia Kulik: wow
Ilia has always been an exceptional skater. He is so comfortable on the ice and skates with such musciality second only to Kurt Browning. Ilia makes everything look easy, smooth and just dances across the ice. To top it off, he has kept his technical ability even after many years.
He is definitely on my list of most memorable skaters and among my all time favorites.
