Johnny Weir and husband Victor Voronov Weir announced their split in March, but in April, an alleged postnup between the spouses seemed to indicate they were at leasttrying to smooth things over. Now recent reports indicate there is no way back and they are splitting for good!

The figure skater turned broadcaster and his lawyer love are definitely headed for divorce again following at least two alleged altercations between them!


The pair wed Dec. 31, 2011, in a civil ceremony in New York, and sources say they definitely gave it a shot, they went to marriage counseling and they tried but ultimately have failed.

Back in March this year, Voronov reportedly filed a police report about a domestic incident in which he claims that Weir bit him.


Voronov waited until the very last minute to announce his wedding plans.In fact he told his family only a month before the ceremony and his friends found out in People magazine!

He came out to his father first, and said:

I was going to do my dad last because he’s a soviet man, I told him first, he was so supportive, everyone was so supportive so I decided I am going to have fun with this. So I took my best friend to the mall and there was a huge poster of Johnny in makeup and was like, I’m gay and I’m married to that.

Most recent reports of their nasty divorce say, Voronov is suing Johnny for accusing him of attempted rape and contracting an STD! TMZ reports.

His targets were primarily friends, colleagues, former classmates, roommates, and acquaintances. Using the relationship of trust he had acquired with these people, he would con them into believing that he was running a very successful investment company. He would talk about the thousands of dollars each of his ‘investors’ had made in such a short time, and talk about his investment strategies at length (in person or over the phone). He would send his victims to one of his numerous websites, which were filled with fake graphs and performance reports showing companies like KAZ, WBD, MTL. He would also send a fraudulent ‘prospectus’ that detailed the structure of the investment, the type of investments being made, etc. He was very careful not to put any promise of earnings on paper, but would do so at length over the phone or in person. Promises of 25-50% returns in a few months, for example.
