Johnny Weir Appears in Court on Domestic Biting Charge
Johnny Weir and his husband Victor Voronov appeared in a New Jersey court this week to settle a disturbing domestic dispute. According to Radar Online, Voronov filed a police report about a month before the Winter Olympic games claiming that Weir bit him. The couple went to court today to ask that the case be dismissed.

Despite the allegations, the couple appeared to have worked out their differences: Radar was in a Lyndhurst, New Jersey, courtroom on Tuesday morning, where the pair put on a united front and requested the Lyndhurst Municipal Court judge to dismiss the case.
Sitting next to each other, Voronov put his hand on Weir’s knee and whispered into his ear before the case begun.
When Weir approached the bench in an unusually subdued black ensemble, the judge took note of Weir’s impeccable style and apparent celebrity status, remarking: “Nice hairdo!”
Without stating any specifics about the case and charges, the judge asked if the “victim” was present and ordered Voronov to approach the bench.
Voronov asked the judge to dismiss the case – and the dismissal was granted.
When Radar approached Weir — who starred in his Sochi coverage for NBC — outside the courthouse, he said: “It is a private matter I do not wish to discuss.”
