The blades are getting sharpened in the Johnny Weir-Victor Voronov break up.
"We were fighting in such a terrible way and it did get physical," Weir told Access Hollywood's Billy Bush. "It's unfortunate that things went the way that it did because domestic violence is never the way to go."
And even if the physical incidents, including one that involved biting, didn't leave visible scars, Weird said, "the damage that was done to me mentally was crippling."
Voronov's rep, Wendy Feldman, responded to Weir's claim: "There was a domestic violence incident. Johnny was arrested. That case was dropped by Victor at the urging of Johnny prior to the Olympics. The person who bit someone was Johnny."
Weir also claims that despite his law degree, Voronov didn't contribute to the household financially and, further, didn't support Weir's demanding, globetrotting job.
"I was supporting two people, and whether it seems like a big deal or not, I come from a lower-middle-class family that has had to work no matter what," Weir said. "If you can't be an attorney this week, then you better go get a job next week, otherwise the bills won't get paid. I had to travel to work, to support myself and support my family."
Countered Voronov's rep: "Victor was a highly educated person, a lawyer, and willfully gave up his career at the request of Johnny to devote himself to Johnny as a traditional spouse often does."
Weir is not concerned about any skeletons emerging from his ex's camp. "The worst he could do would be to post naked photos that we have between each other," he told Access. "And I look flawless."
