Johnny Weir & Husband Victor Voronov Divorce; Biting Incident Caused Split?
Former two-time Olympian Johnny Weir has just accounted that he has split with lawyer husband Victor Voronov after being married in December 30, 2011 after being married a little over 2 years.
Saying "My heart hurts and I wish him well," the 29-year-old Olympic figure skater turned Olympic commentator announced March 19 via his official twitter the end of their marriage, reports the Daily Mail.
This announcement was followed by another tweet a few hours later saying he appreciated the love he received.
Recent Domestic Incident
Earlier this month, Radar Online reported that Weir was involved in a domestic incident with his husband about a month before the Russia games. Voronov filed a police report that alleges the three-time national champion bit him. However, the couple seemed to have worked out their differences and had requested the Lyndhurst Municipal Court judge to dismiss the case together.
Weir told Radar outside the courthouse: "It is a private matter I do not wish to discuss."
Gay Power Couple
The pair married on New Year's Eve of 2011 in an intimate courthouse civil wedding and do not have a prenip. All seemed to be going well. During an interview with Access Hollywood February 2014, the flamboyant figure skater spoke candidly about his marriage.
"A marriage between two guys is different than what I imagine a marriage between a man and a woman [to be]," he said. "I mean, we're both constantly trying to fight to wear the pants in the relationship. ... It's constant fireworks. It's very boom, boom, boom."
Presently, it has not been clear if the couple are separated or about to begin divorce proceedings.
Weir, in a statement to Access Hollywood revealed, "I have been sad for a long time ... And unfortunately don't foresee a way to resolve our current marital issues." The exclusive interview of Weir with Access Hollywood on the end of his marriage will air Thursday.
