Johnny Weir Allegedly Bit Husband Victor Weir-Voronov In Domestic Dispute: Report

Posted: Updated:

Fresh off his NBC stint in Sochi, Johnny Weir reportedly appeared in court on domestic violence charges stemming from an earlier incident involving his husband, Victor Weir-Voronov.

Radar Online is reporting that Weir-Voronov filed a police report against the 29-year-old Olympic figure skating star about a month before the start of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi. In it, he alleged that Weir had bitten him during a domestic violence dispute.

Details of the incident are scarce, but when he appeared in court in Lyndhurst, N.J., Weir-Voronov asked the judge to dismiss the charges. The dismissal was granted, according to the report.

Weir, whose NBC stint was generally well received, told Access Hollywood last month that his marriage was "constant fireworks," adding, "We're both constantly trying to fight to wear the pants in the relationship."

Meanwhile, Weir-Voronov, who tied the knot with the U.S. figure skater on New Year's Eve in 2011, told Bethenny Frankel last year that he had not come out of the closet to his family until one month before the wedding.

"I told my family a month before we got married, and my friends only found out in People magazine," Weir-Voronov, who claims he knew he was gay as a child, told Frankel. "I didn't come out of the closet, I chainstormed the door down ... I'm a masculine guy, people [didn't expect it]."

CLARIFICATION: An earlier version of this article referred to Weir as an Olympic champion. While he was the U.S. national champion, he has not won an Olympic medal.
