Three-time U.S. champion figure skater and fashionista Johnny Weir is speaking publicly for the very first time about his “terrible divorce” from Victor Voronov.
Remember all that drama?
In case you need a recap: The guys were married on New Year’s Eve in 2011. By 2014, their relationship had soured. The break-up included accusations of violence, including malicious biting and death threats, as well as sexting with porn stars, animal abuse, destruction of Birkin bags, and the theft of a $20,000 Fabergé egg and a set of Louis Vuitton luggage.
Their divorce was finalized in 2015, after which Weir retreated from the public eye. Now, he’s back.
Weir recently sat down with psychic Tyler Henry from E! Entertainment’s Hollywood Medium for some spiritual guidance, particularly when it comes to his love life.
Henry, who we’re sure had absolutely no advance knowledge of Weir’s very public breakup, sensed that the 32-year-old figure skater had suffered some relationship trauma in the past that involved a lot of “deception.”
When he brought it up, Weir explained, “In those situations a lot of things get said and being a public person, there are things you can’t fix. You can’t publicly say that that’s not true.”
“There’s so little that people actually know about that period of my life because I wasn’t sharing it with the whole world,” he continued. “It was a very difficult time for me to sit and not stick up for myself and not say anything.”
Weir added that it’s been “very, very difficult” for him to even think about another relationship after the whole disaster with Voronov.
“I had a terrible divorce and I fled from that situation,” he said.
“So I’m always kind of thinking, ‘Oh how nice it would be to be with someone’ and then I stop myself because that could happen again.”
“It’s very, very hard.”
