Johnny Weir Splits With Husband

Weir came out publicly in January 2011 and married Victor Voronov in December of that year. Radar Online notes that the split comes two weeks after a court dismissed a domestic violence charge made by Voronov.

Before Sochi, where he commentated for NBC, Weir had managed to keep a major secret: He was involved in a domestic violence with Voronov that would later have its courtroom sequel on March 4. About a month before the games in Russia, Weir’s husband filed a police report in which he alleged the three-time U.S. national champion of biting him. Despite the allegations, the couple had appeared to have worked out their differences when they appeared in a Lyndhurst, New Jersey, courtroom, requesting a judge dismiss the case.
