    Just watched "Inside Edition", whom did a 5-minute segment on this, ending with Johnny saying "it's a private matter" and refusing to comment, as it should be. jmho.

    You agree that it's a private matter, but you still watched the entire five-minute segment....

    I just finished reading all the comments posted in this thread and am stunned that I never saw anything in the media about this, especially since Johnny Weir was arrested (that would certainly be cause for a media-swarm, right?) This is all quite odd IMO (and scary, as is anything associated w/ domestic violence).

    None of this makes sense to me, especially Victor's tweets from around the time of the incident.

    Well, who knows what really happened, but I wish Johnny the best. I hope they either work things out or part ways with reasonable civility.

    This is very upsetting, I do not understand how they can still be together after that. Violence is absolutely terrible. But it is of course their life and nobody was there with them.

    What I do not understand: You can be convicted of battery and theft (if that us true) and work as a lawyer?
    And what was this about Johnny being bald ?

    I somehow wished I had not seen this thread. It makes me sad.

    I'm sorry I saw this thread as well - its really sad and does not bode well for them. I couldn't find anything that said he was actually arrested, just that Viktor filed a police report - I would think that if he was arrested, someone would've printed his mug shot along with this story. Anyway, I hope that they take a serious look at their situation and get some help.

    There is absolutely nothing at all funny or trivial about domestic violence. Whether it occurs between a man and a woman, two women, or two men. Abuse is abuse. That being said, when looking into the facts and following Johnny's career and life up until now there are some things that are very disturbing about this. I don't think questioning some of the details and especially Victor means that I am victim-blaming or trivializing anything because there is definitely more than meets the eye here. I am not a Johnny apologist but I would hate for him to get labelled as a abuser and get a whole lot of negative publicity over this because many things are troubling.

    For one, Johnny has been the subject of a tv show and movie where cameras followed him around 24/7. He's had countless interviews and a million friends talk about him as a person. He's also extremely honest and usually talks about things he does good and bad and is very up front about his flaws. Not once since he stepped into the public eye as a teenager has he ever been talked about by friends, coaches, peers or himself as a violent person or someone possessing any desire to hurt anyone or having a habit of lashing out.

    Looking into his husband Victor Voronov reveals a police record for battery, theft, and DUI... all when he lived in Atlanta. It is his arrest for battery that most concerns me. Victor has a shady past and everything that can be gleaned publicly from his personality suggests that he possesses quite a dark side. Johnny has made comments in fan meetings to the effect of Victor always wants to go where he goes, and Victor likes to sit in on his work whether it's at the rink or at his agent's office. Many candid photographs of them in public show Victor watching Johnny or not far from his side when in social situations. Johnny has made comments in interviews about cutting/styling his hair a certain way or wearing/not wearing a certain thing because Victor wanted it. Simply making this police report public over twitter is disturbing and suspicious enough on Victor's part however, his tweets (and deletes) during the time Johnny was in Russia have been downright manipulative. He's tweeted himself half-naked, showing Johnny's name tattooed under his arm, several strange statements and even a tweet "good thing the videos weren't leaked" which sounded very much like a threat. He deleted all of these and claimed in a half-ass way that he was hacked.

    In 2013 gay porn producer Michael Lucas harangued Johnny for continuing to support Russia and not boycotting the Olympics. Victor took serious exception to this and sent Lucas a series of disturbing and threatening private messages which Lucas sent to a website and made public. The messages tell him to stop saying anything negative about Johnny and threaten him with making his life miserable if he doesn't. In one message Victor tells Lucas "I am the LAST person you want to mess with. Trust me on this." I have been so disturbed ever since I read these messages and have wondered just what the hell Johnny has gotten himself into with this man.

    Another thing that disturbs me is the horrible markings on Johnny's body in many recent pictures. Just browsing the past year on his Instagram reveals many deep purple and red blotches on and around his neck and chest in his personal photos. There is one picture with a very obvious deep bite mark on his chest and the posters on Instagram all commented. Hickeys and love marks are one thing but these huge purple splotches are worrisome. Physically the two are very different. Johnny may be a slight bit taller but he is much lighter and leaner. Victor is ripped... complete solid muscle and has mentioned that he has had marital arts training in the past. You don't just go up to someone and bite them. It occurs in the heat of a mutual struggle. What had to have been going on between them for that to happen? It suggests that Johnny was being held or restrained. No, this doesn't make it right but the fact that everything is all nicey nice between them again after Victor went to the trouble to involve police, file a report, and make this public is extremely worrisome. I know Johnny is a colourful character but anyone who has watched his movie or show knows that he has a different private side to him. I do worry about him and I can't help believing that he married a very jealous, possessive, and manipulative man who I pray does not turn out to be dangerous.

    After reading your post, sunny_sari, I also feel a bit worried for Johnny. The concerns you raise are serious . . . For Johnny's sake, I hope this situation is not as bad as it seems like it could be.

    I've actually been sort of mad at Johnny the last couple weeks! I mostly loved his commentary in Sochi, but I didn't agree with his stance on Sotnikova's victory. And toward the end, I felt he went a bit too far in his fangirl-support of all the Russian skaters, in particular Ilinykh/Katsalapov, Lipnitskaya, and Sotnikova. So I've been kind of mad at him, but it's only temporary. Ultimately, I'll always be a huge fan of Johnny and his skating, so all this news about him & Victor is worrisome. I'd been hoping marriage would bring some stability to Johnny's life.

    Oh, and I find the "jokes" in this thread about the situation with Victor just really, really un-funny.

    It's a bit weird that 90 % of Victor's tweets are about Johnny. Like he wouldn't have any own life. I have also read all kinds of rumours of him. I know that domestic violence is a very serious issue but did he really have to go to police for this kind of reason, a bite?

    This entire matter is very, very sad. I did not realize that Johnny had been arrested. I pray that he and Victor will be able to work things out although, right now, it looks doubtful. Sometimes we forget, when seeing all of the happy gay weddings on TV, that even gay couples can split. It wasn't in the 'Happiness Play Book' but it's real life.

    Call be Polyanna but I still hope that Johnny & Victor will be able to reconcile and go back to happiness.

    Maybe he wasn't actually arrested. I think I'm the only one who thinks that, so I could be wrong. Reading his book, it was clear that Johnny is a romantic. He loves to be in love. He wrote about how crushed and heartbroken he was when his previous relationship ended (and it seems he mostly blamed himself for not being attentive enough). I hope for him that he finds his bliss, however it happens.
