Johnny Weir Spills About Marriage Split; Voronov Blindsided by Divorce

Johnny Weir talked to Access Hollywood's Billy Bush yesterday about his split from husband of three years Victor Voronov.

2_weirWeir, who appeared recently with Voronov in a New Jersey court to clear up a domestic violence incident which involved a charge that Weir bit his husband, told Bush that Voronov was resentful of his work schedule and said that on top of that he has also been supporting Voronov financially.

Basically, he has been shouldering many of the burdens in the relationship and that has made him super sad:

“I’ve been having a tough time at home for a long time now and it’s something that I’ve kept from the public. I was losing myself by being married to my husband. I was losing my objectives in life. I was very isolated from the world."

Voronov's rep told Access Hollywood that he gave up working at Weir's request:

“Victor was a highly-educated person, a lawyer and willfully gave up his career at the request of Johnny to devote himself to Johnny as a traditional spouse often does.”

With regard to the biting incident, Weir told Bush that it was self defense:

“The night in question, my husband was very drunk and was yelling at me about my relationship with my mother and my mother was assisting me in cleaning up some financial messiness that had happened and he was uncomfortable with that and had voiced it very clearly. So, we had a fight and then I went to sleep because I had to work the next day and he came in – very not himself – and asked me to lay with him in the biblical sense, and when I refused, the altercation between us started. I was defending myself and it’s unfortunate that there was a mark left on his body because as soon the police came to our home the first thing he did was show this mark, so I knew then he didn’t really care that much and all he is out to do is hurt me.”

Weir adds that he is not worried that Voronov has naked photo of him that he could publish because "I look flawless."

Meanwhile, Voronov tweeted yesterday that he was blindsided by the divorce filing:

"Shocked by the abrupt ending of my marriage and am dealing with the trauma including multiple things I am just now becoming aware of...Yes. I'd like to confirm, It's true: I am only now finding out that my husband @johnnygweir filed for divorce from me months ago."

  1. Why do we pay so much attention to straight marriage of that transsexual woman?

  5. Oh, noes, could it be that celebrity gay couples can be just as screwed up as celebrity straight couples? What ever will happen to this world of marriage equality???

  6. Narcissistic personality disorder.

  7. Weir has always struck me as an immature, self absorbed ass. Handle your business in private.

  8. Run Victor run!

    Be Free!

    Lady Weird will never be able to catch you in those heels.

  9. Why Victor calls this woman his "husband"?

    Posted by: litper | Mar 21, 2014 9:17:21 AM

  10. Maybe he got tired of Victor's duck lips.

  11. Well, at least it lasted longer than 75 days...

    Perhaps he's shopping for a new Russian Mail Order husband...?

  13. Nobody really gives a good crap about JW.

  14. Victor is the better looking of the two. He can do so much better.

  15. With their model of marriage being the kind where you "quit work to devote oneself to your spouse" and "lay with him in the Biblical sense", the marriage was doomed.

  16. I would totally bang Victor.

  17. Damn, some of ya'll are harsh as f*ck. It's obvious JW wanted attention from this since the Olympics are over and everyone goes back to ignoring his existence again.

    Messy gays stay messy.

  18. God, he is so desperate for fame.

  19. And this shows many of us gays are just as committed to the hard work of marriage as straights...there really is no news here.

  20. "I was very isolated from the world." If only!

    Posted by: jomicur | Mar 21, 2014 10:22:55 AM

  21. When Weir discovers the world doesn't revolve around him, if he ever does, he will be in for a nasty shock. All future boyfriends, beware.

  22. who, in their right mind, goes on a celebrity gossip show to discuss their divorce, while it's happening? sick, sick, sick.

    Posted by: northalabama | Mar 21, 2014 10:38:55 AM

  23. His husband showing the mark showed that he was out to get him? Ummm...whatever. Violence -- biting, slapping, kicking, punching, whatever -- is NEVER okay. And the fact that he's more upset that it was found out than he is remorseful for turning to violence shows just what a deluded queen he is.

  24. Finally, something related to Russia or Russians that's actually newsworthy!

    Posted by: Steve Scarborough | Mar 21, 2014 10:54:00 AM

  25. What an absolutely ghastly pair of queens.

    When will people who are successful at one thing realize that that does not qualify them to be in a relationship?

    You're famous: you make good money: you're still a loathsome unloveable emotionally-crippled reptile. Being liked or loved is NOT a human right.
