Johnny Weir insists that he is not worth $10 million, no matter what Victor Voronov claims. According to Radar Online, March 26, 2014, Johnny is pleading poverty.
Apparently, the designer handbags, clothes and other expensive items belonged to Johnny before he married Victor. Johnny pleads poverty because he quit “Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice,” he rents an apartment and drives a leased vehicle.
So, what does Johnny have to say about Victor’s accusations? Radar Online reports, “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.”
Johnny claims the designer handbag collection came from his adoring fans. A Japanese fan allegedly gifted the Olympic ice skater a crocodile Celine bag, a Cartier Rose gold watch, and green Hermes Birkin handbag. He claims that he owns nine Balenciaga handbags purchased before his marriage to Victor. Either he purchased the bags or his parents gave him the bags as gifts.
After the court proceedings last Friday, Johnny let people know Victor's true personality. He said, “When he is angry he becomes unhinged. I have seen this behavior throughout our marriage and have endured his abuse for many months. This is exactly why I needed to retrieve my dog and property because this is what Defendant does. If people do not do as he wishes, he harms them.”
