This breakup just keeps getting nastier and nastier!!
Riding the tidal wave of success at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Johnny Weir was getting ready to compete in the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice! In fact, he had already begun shooting for the show although he allegedly never signed a contract!
We're hearing now, though, that apparently all of the drama surrounding his divorce with Victor Voronov has caused him to drop out completely! A source close to Johnny revealed:
"Johnny had indeed begun filming Celebrity Apprentice last week, but has been a no show on the set this week amidst the ongoing divorce drama with Victor. He felt all of the drama was going to detract from filming, and decided to quit. It was a hard decision for him to make because Johnny was very excited about doing the show, and has tons of respect for Donald Trump. Hopefully, the offer for him to appear on the show will be extended again in the future."
The news came out when Johnny filed legal documents in response to Victor's claims that he was worth $10 million, which the former figure skater says is not even close to being true!
"Unfortunately I am not as financially successful as the Defendant would have this court believe (i.e. I am not worth 10 million dollars, I did not sign a seven-figure contract with NBC and I did not sign a contract with Celebrity Apprentice, etc). All of these allegations are not only untrue, they are absurd and my attorney already explained this to Defendant’s counsel. The Defendant knows this, he knows how we lived. If I had 10 million dollars I would not be living in a rented apartment in Lyndhurst and driving a leased Lexus SUV."
So what does this all mean for Victor? Well for one thing he's going to have to start pinching his pennies a lot more than he has over the past couple of years!
During a recent divorce hearing, the judge came up with a temporary agreement that would force Johnny to give Victor an allowance of $1,000 a month!
Not only that, but the couple has already agreed to sell their Faberge Egg and their wedding rings, and $15,000 of their earnings are going straight into their attorney's pockets while the rest goes into a trust fund!
Yikes! This just keeps getting worse and worse!
