Johnny Weir Back Together With Husband & It Sounds Like It’s For Good This Time
After announcing their split via Twitter on March 19, Johnny Weir has gotten back together with his husband Victor Voronov. Weir shared the news, again on Twitter, writing, "My husband and I have happily reconciled. Please respect our privacy and integrity at this time." This is quite the switch from the way their separation was announced and is surprising after hearing about court proceeding following the split in which the couple were said to be arguing over assets as well as custody of their adorable Japanese Chin, Tëma. But according to Page Six, the couple had been on-and-off for the past couple of months.
When Weir tweeted about the break up originally, he wrote, "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." Meanwhile, Voronov wrote his own tweet that made it seem the decision wasn't exactly mutual. He said, "Shocked by the abrupt ending of my marriage and am dealing with the trauma including multiple things I am just now becoming aware of…" Soon after the announcement, Weir added that he would be giving an interview about the divorce on Access Hollywood.
In the time since their split, Weir and Voronov met in court where it was decided that Weir would pay Voronov support of $6,000 per month and that the couple would split custody of Tëma with Weir getting her the majority of the time. Additionally, it was reported that Weir would need to sell one of his Faberge eggs worth $15,000 in order to pay legal fees. When expensive eggs are at risk, you know things are serious.
After that, the couple came back together "with the aid of an agreement banning extramarital dalliances and calling for biannual joint STD tests," says Page Six, but that wasn't all. Then Voronov gave an interview to Us Weekly saying that they were apart again and blamed Weir's mother. "The divorce is 100 percent still happening... Johnny's meddling mother was definitely the source of the breakdown of our marriage."
The couple has obviously been thought a lot together, much of it publicly, so it's probably best that they stick to the message in Weir's tweet and keep things private this time. No interviews, no quotes given by lawyers, and no conflicting tweets. That last one should be easy since Voronov has deleted his Twitter account.
