Ricky Martin And Johnny Weir Announce Plans For Marriage (Not To Each Other!)

The new year’s barely a day old and already we have the happy tidings of two big fat gay celebrity weddings: those of Latin pop star Ricky Martin and Olympic skate diva Johnny Weir.

Weir’s already officially tied the knot, on New Year’s Eve, to his Russian lawyer beau, Victor Voronov (right).

“I’m married!’ Weir tweeted on December 31. “Wedding in summer! But all the official stuff is done now!”

The 27-year-old Olympian announced his impending nuptials a few days earlier in an interview with IceNetwork.com: “I’m getting married on New Year’s Eve,” he gushed. “His name is Victor, he’s kind of everything that I’ve ever looked for and aspired to be in a relationship with. We’ve known each other for a long time and we reconnected over the summer, and it’s just been a whirlwind.”

ricky-martin-muy-tristeWeir tweeted this morning that he and Voronov were on their way to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic—which segues nicely into the news of the other gay celeb union of 2012, that of Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin and boyfriend Carlos González Abella, which El Nuevo Dia reports will take place in New York City on January 28.

Martin’s publicist denies the engagement, but the “Vida Loca” singer has been seeing González Abella, a 34-year-old Puerto Rican businessman, for three years. The couple are raising twin sons, Matteo and Valentino.

Martin, who turned 40 on Christmas Eve, secured Spanish citizenship in November, fueling speculation that a marriage in Spain was imminent.

Let’s hope both these marriages last longer than this one or this one. Or this one. (Straight people!)

      False info about Ricky Martin.

      “Sin embargo, la publicista del artista, Helga García, se apartó de la versión que apunta a que Martin se casaría en unas semanas en la Gran Manzana.

      “El asunto personal de Ricky ni de ningún otro artista con los que trabajo es algo que yo discuto, pero en este momento te diría que eso no es correcto””

      Good for Johnny, it’s nice to see how happy he’s been since he’s been with this guy. Congratulations to them. :) And congrats to Ricky Martin, too, I hadn’t heard about that.

      Ricky has done no such thing! Stop reporting false “news” without any proof.

      Happy nuptuals to both couples, if any of this is even close to true.

      And Glenn, dear, lose the attitude, it makes you seem bitter, caustic, and desperate.

      @Glenn: Johnny certainly has bigger balls than you, dearie, not afraid to express who he is and live his life his own. You, on the other hand, are just another tired gay boy with diminished man syndrome all in angst with a queer boy being queer. Worry about yourself honey, Johnny is doing just fine being out and proud.
