Johnny Weir, Chesco-born skating star, gets married

January 03, 2012|By Peter Mucha, Inquirer Staff Writer

"I'm married," Johnny Weir tweeted New Year's Eve.

The Coatesville-born skating champ, who trained in Wilmington, tied the knot Friday with Jersey boyfriend Victor Voronov.

"Wedding in summer! But all the official stuff is done now! No more livin' in sin!" was Weir's follow-up tweet.

Voronov, a Georgetown Law School grad, is "prepping for the Jersey Bar in 2012," according to his Twitter profile.

"Ringing in the New Year with my new hubby @JohnnyGWeir! #ELATED," Voronov tweeted.

They're honeymooning in Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic, Weir tweeted.

Weir, U.S. champion from 2004 to 2006 and twice an Olympian, was known for his wild, theatrical costumes. He confirmed he was gay in his autobiography, Welcome to My World, last January.

Johnny Weir Files for Divorce From Husband of Two Years

http://celebrity.yahoo.com/blogs/celeb-news/johnny-weir-files-for-divorce-from-husband-of-two-years-230701813.html

The former Olympic ice skater and NBC ice skating analyst has filed for divorce from his husband of just over two years, Victor Weir-Voronov.

Weir, 29, announced the news Wednesday afternoon on Twitter.

Weir gave a longer statement to "Access Hollywood" saying, "I have been sad for a long time … And unfortunately don't foresee a way to resolve our current marital issues.

"A marriage between two guys is different than what I imagine a marriage between a man and a woman [to be]," he noted. "I mean, we're both constantly trying to fight to wear the pants in the relationship. It's constant fireworks. It's very boom, boom, boom."

Weir is involved. That's impossible.

Referring to the new law in Russia, which makes being gay illegal on the grounds that it is threatening to children, the athlete [Weir] flippantly characterized it as “no anal sex in front of libraries.”
It’s a flippant reference to the widely broadcast footage of the late Alexei Davydov being hauled off, as the first person arrested under the law, for standing in front of the Moscow Children’s Library with a sign that read, “Gay is normal.”

In fact, contrary to Weir’s claim, the propaganda law has been used against more than just people who have anal sex in front of libraries.

Dmitry Isakov, 24, was arrested under the propaganda law for simply standing in the center of town and holding a sign reading: “Being gay and loving gays is normal. Beating gays and killing gays is a crime!”

Ikea recently pulled a spread about a lesbian couple from its magazine, for fear that it would run afoul of Russia’s anti-gay law.

Russia’s government invoked the law against a local TV channel for airing a French film that included a 3-some.

Russia’s Jewish autonomous region recently faced an investigation from Moscow of whether the region’s flag, which contains a rainbow, violates the propaganda law.

A Russian newspaper was recently threatened over an article that quoted a gay person saying that they weren’t a horrible person.

And of course, the Russians have threatened to jail Olympic athletes and guests who say or do anything pro-gay during the games.

And this doesn’t even begin to touch on the impact the anti-gay law has had in furthering Russia’s numerous violently homophobic attacks on gay and trans people.

“He is selling out millions of people to satisfy his desire not to forgo his income or status. Is this what he would have done in Germany in 1936?”

That's vintage Weir. Rely on sexism to explain why being a jackass caused the end of your marriage.

He doesn't want a husband, he wants a dog.

I've always like him because he's something different from a gay celebrity.

Many were critical of his stance in Russia but he probably has more fans in Russia and Asia than he does in the US where Stars on Ice called him "not family friendly" for their tour. So he goes were the money is, so does Scarlett Johannson given her Soda Stream endorsement. Not rare among celebs.

TMZ is having a field day with this story. They must have posted at least 5 articles over the past 24hrs about the drama behind the divorce. :oh:

This is a weak defense indeed. Stars on Ice isn't an entire nation. It can't make laws against people being gay, for instance. Secondly, there is money to be found without ridiculing activists and gay-baiting with comments about anal sex in front of libraries.
