Johnny Weir

Olympic Paycheck Couldn't Buy Me a Purse!

4/7/2014 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Johnny Weir Olympics Salary
Johnny Weir
appears to be way more cash strapped -- and less marketable -- than anyone thought, because reports that he made a cool million for the Winter Olympics are exaggerated 40 times over.

TMZ has obtained a draft of the contract Johnny signed with NBC.  The network offered him an anemic $25,000 for the Sochi games.  And get this ... NBC also wanted him to FLY COACH for the domestic flights.

Johnny's lawyer didn't even push back and make a counteroffer.

There were a few extras.  NBC offered an addition $40K for Johnny to show up at 8 non-Olympic events.  So the grand total for Mr. Weir was a whopping $65K.

FYI -- a Hermes Birkin 35 Pelouse Porosus Crocodile will set you back $78,000 ... and that's USED!

I don't understand TMZ's obsession with this man and his failing marriage. There are much bigger stars getting divorced right now.

There are the basic birkins starting at $5,000. He can shop at Coach if he doesn't wanna spend a lot. Save your money honey. 💵💵💵

Why does a man need a purse? What idiot pays $78,000 for a purse? What does a purse have to do with this story?

So what? Most of us have to work for our money. He makes a hell of a lot more than I do for just showing up somewhere. I never figured Harvey for a man who liked feminine men, but if Weir is flatulent he'll tell us about it. Johnny Weir is about as has been as they come.

To be honest its probably because winter olympics just arent as popular. Well at least in the US. So endorsements and such wont come rolling in. Just only if he was a swimmer instead.....
