Details on Weir Divorce: Cheating, Vandalized Handbags, and a Kidnapped Dog?
More details about Johnny Weir's divorce from Victor Voronov are rolling in. Johnny announced on Twitter Wednesday that he and husband Victor were splitting up. "It is with great sadness," he said, "that I announce that my husband and I are no longer together. My heart hurts, and I wish him well."
The divorce was a shock to Victor. His rep told People mag, "He's totally heartbroken. Victor entered the marriage for one purpose only – because he loved Johnny."
But now, details about the events leading up to the divorce are coming out, and I have to say - to me, you shouldn't be all that shocked, sis.
TMZ obtained a personal e-mail between Johnny and Victor from September, 2013 (Gee, I wonder who leaked that?) Johnny apparently was trying to smooth things over from some transgression he made (infidelity?) but was furious that Victor ruined his prized possession - his Birkin!
Johnny says in the e-mail, "If you decide to wreck things, please wreck cheaper things than Birkins. The f*** you on the Birkin is kinda cool, though, you artist. I know you don't care about how I'll survive if you divorce me, but please leave my Birkin bags, Celine bags and Chanel bags alone."
And yesterday, another sad blow-out occurred, resulting with Johnny taking the family dog out of their apartment ... as his distraught soon-to-be-ex husband Victor watched and sobbed. Both men went to court to file documents yesterday - Victor filed a restraining order against Johnny, claiming Johnny got violent and physical with him during an argument on March 5th.
Johnny received an order giving him the right to go into their apartment for 30 minutes and collect his belongings with the help of cops. And in dramatic fashion, he arrived at the apartment with SIX cops. Johnny ended up taking a number of his belongings, including 2 TV sets, Hermes scarves, various costumes and the family dog, Tema, a Japanese Chin which he and Victor got during the marriage.
A court date has been set for next week, and custody of the dog and other issues will be ironed out before a judge.
