Johnny Weir Had to Quit Celebrity Apprentice Because of Victor Voronov Split
Posted by Adam
JOHNNY Weir has been forced to drop out of Donald Trump‘s Celebrity Apprentice this season.
The Olympic figure had to quit the program due to his bitter divorce drama with estranged husband Victor Voronov, RadarOnline reports.
“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,” a source said.
“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.
Weir recently claimed in legal documents filed in his ongoing divorce that he isn’t worth $10 million, lives in a rented apartment, drives a leased Lexus SUV and will not be appearing on the upcoming season of Trump‘s Celebrity Apprentice.
“Johnny has also been put on ice by NBC….there were plans to develop a reality show with Johnny and Tara Lipinski,” said the source.
“The duo was a hit with their broadcasting from the Sochi Winter Olympics, but all of that is now on hold. This divorce is going to cost Johnny a lot of career opportunities, and that is truly sad for him.”
