In a world where fame often masks the complexities of personal lives, the story of Johnny Weir, the renowned Olympic ice skater turned TV personality, and his tumultuous relationships offer a glimpse into the intricacies of love, identity, and public perception.
From his dazzling performances on the ice to the highs and lows of his romantic entanglements, Weir’s journey prompts reflection on the price of fame and the resilience of the human spirit.
Who Is Johnny Weir?
Weir was born on July 2, 1984, in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. He started skating when he was 12, which is two or three years later than most professional skaters.
He won the Cup of Russia in 2007 and was the youngest US National winner since 1991. He was the first American to do so.
The last person to win three US Nationals was Brian Boitano in the late 1980s. Weir was the first person to do that.
He became more interested in Russian history, culture, and language through learning how to figure skate the Russian way.
U.S. Figure Skating, which oversees figure skating in the US, had problems with him because of the clothes he wore and the way he spoke out.
Who is Johnny Weir’s Ex-Partner Victor Voronov?
Victor Voronov learned about law at Georgetown and was born in Russia on July 4, 1984.
In 2011, Weir and Voronov got married at a church wedding in New York.
It had been three years since they broke up, and they filed for divorce in New Jersey in March 2014.
On social media, Weir wrote, “It makes me very sad to say that my husband and I are no longer together.” It hurts my heart, and I hope he gets better.
“No matter what, I am a cheerleader of love and partnership and creation.
“I am sad yet I am thankful that I was loved and that I could love.”
According to Radar Online, Voronov filed a report alleging that Weir had bit him.
The couple did ask the judge to throw out the case, though.
Victor got married again, even though his split from Johnny was very bad.
Voronov fell in love with Joti Polizoakis, who is 20 years old and skates for the German national team.
He used to be sad that his new husband is nothing like his ex-boyfriend.
He told Page Six: “This person is the most genuine, kind, honest and sweet person. I’ve never been treated better in my life. Anybody would be lucky to know a person like this.”
