Johnny Weir, Victor Voronov going ahead with divorce

2014-04-17
2012 Human Rights Campaign GalaUS figure skater Johnny Weir's divorce from husband Victor Voronov is "100 percent still happening". Voronov addressed rumours that he and Weir are set to reconcile, telling US Weekly that "Johnny's meddling mother" caused a problem in their marriage. He said: "Johnny's meddling mother [Pamela] was definitely the source of the breakdown of our marriage." Weir confirmed news of their split on Twitter last month, posting: “It is with great sadness that I announce that my husband and I are no longer together. My heart hurts, and I wish him well.” Their split came just weeks after Weir reportedly appeared on court to answer allegations that he bit his husband during a violent dispute. Weir recently worked as an NBC commentator at the Sochi Winter Olympics. > Northern Ireland to debate equal marriage on April 29 > Ellen DeGeneres tops US magazine’s LGBT power list > Darren Hayes on Jessie J: ‘Role model – an impossible job title’
