The dog once shared by Johnny Weir and estranged hubby Victor Voronov now has TWO DADDIES once again -- the divorcing couple has agreed to joint custody of the pooch ... pending a full-blown custody trial ... TMZ has learned.
Weir and Voronov have been warring over the dog since their split. Under the arrangement, Voronov will get the dog for 1 week a month ... and when Weir leaves town for more than 2 days.

Victor Beat My Dog
3/25/2014 2:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Weir claims his estranged husband, Victor Weir-Voronov beat his tiny pooch ... this according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ.
Johnny claims Victor is lying when he says Tema, a Japanese chin, was the family dog. Johnny says it was his -- that he got Tema from a pet store, that Tema slept on his side of the bed, that Tema waited by the bathroom door when Johnny took a shower, that Tema followed Johnny all over the house.
Johnny thinks it's ironic that Victor is fighting for the dog, because he claims Victor is volatile and has seen him "strike the dog with force on occasion when we were married."
Johnny also says early this month when he went to pick up some items ... Tema was in a bag on the bed with Victor. Johnny claims Tema was crying and trying to claw his way out of the bag.
And Johnny has a lot more to say. In the docs he scoffs at Victor's claim he's worth $10 Mil, denying he signed a 7-figure deal with NBC. Johnny says, "If I had 10 million dollars I would not be living in a rented apartment in Lyndhurst and driving a leased Lexus SUV.
Johnny alleges a story TMZ broke earlier ... that Victor tried to extort him for $25K in return for not going public about the marriage.
Johnny says Victor ransacked their apartment and has stolen a number of precious items, including a Faberge egg, a Louis Vuitton trunk, jewelry and an Hermes ashtray.
And there's this revelation ... Johnny wears boxers. He says the only clothing that remained in the closet were some PJs, boxers and T-shirts.
Johnny Weir's Husband
He Cheated on Me
And Forced Me Out of the Closet
3/24/2014 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Weir's estranged husband just filed legal docs, accusing the Olympian of repeatedly cheating on him and treating him like a lap dog.
According to Victor Weir-Voronov's legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Johnny allegedly committed multiple acts of adultery, including having sex with a Chicago club owner and sexting with a porn star.
Victor says throughout the marriage Johnny was cruel to him ... forbidding him from bringing Victor's dog into the marriage for fear it would take his attention away from Johnny.
Victor also claims prior to meeting Johnny he was living his life as a heterosexual man and was struggling with his identity, yet he says Johnny forced him to come out of the closet.
Victor claims Johnny married him because he wanted to do a new reality show and felt a Georgetown-educated lawyer would be a compelling story line. Yet Victor says Johnny treated him like an errand boy.
As for the housekeeping stuff ... Victor is asking a judge to force Johnny to return some of the items the skater took from their apartment, including
-- Crocodile Celine bag
-- 40 Balencia bags
-- 20 furs (including a $125K sable)
-- Green Hermes shoulder Birkin
-- Orange Hermes 35cm Birkin
-- 12 Chanel bags
And Victor wants an order forcing Johnny to return Tema, their Japanese Chin dog.
He also wants temporary support and legal fees.
A source connected with Weir tells TMZ ... the property Victor wants back was Johnny's before the marriage ... which the source says "couldn't be more obvious from the fact that they are purses and women's furs."
The source says Weir "categorically denies" the adultery allegations.
I'm Removing Tranny
from My Vocabulary
3/24/2014 11:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jerry Springer just learned a very valuable lesson ... and now he's retiring the word "tranny" from his show ... FOREVER.
Springer was on "TMZ Live" today to discuss the backlash over a recent episode of "The Jerry Springer Show" entitled "Trannies Twerk It Out." LGBT groups were not pleased the show used the term "tranny" ... but Springer claims he had no clue he was offending anyone.
"I've just been educated," Springer said on "TMZ Live." "I won't use that term. I honestly had no idea that you're not supposed to use that term, so now we'll find another term to use."
And that's today's ... final thought.
Asking for Privacy
... After Blabbing Away
3/24/2014 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Weir says his messy divorce from Victor Voronov is a private matter ... at least it's private AFTER Johnny gave an exclusive tell-all interview to a TV show.
Our photog spotted Weir on the streets of New York City this morning ... where we wished him well on his upcoming appearance on "Celebrity Apprentice." But when we brought up his recent "drama on the homefront" ... Weir clammed up, claiming, "It's private."
Was it private last week when he spilled the beans to "Access Hollywood" and accused Victor of multiple instances of domestic abuse?
Pot, meet kettle.

The divorce between Johnny Weir and his husband Victor Weir-Voronov is being fought in the courts and the media, with both sides aggressively waging war on both fronts, and Victor's people say this note proves he was blindsided by the Olympian.

Victor's people say this note -- which they say was written just before Johnny left for the Oscars -- is proof the real liar is Johnny.
It is interesting ... Johnny was wearing his wedding ring at the Oscars ... which was held March 2.
Our opinion -- these guys went back and forth like ......... (we couldn't think of something good, so fill in the blank).

Johnny Weir went full vampire on his husband Victor Voronov during a nuclear domestic dispute early this year -- nearly biting a chunk out of the guy's arm -- or so Victor claims ... and now, TMZ has obtained a photo of the damage.
Details surrounding the argument are unclear, but the bite mark is gnarly.
Victor filed a police report and Johnny was charged with simple assault back in January. Victor decided not to press the case and charges were dropped.
As we reported, Johnny and Victor had multiple issues leading up to Johnny filing for divorce last month.
Bitches His Hubby
Ruined His Birkin
3/21/2014 8:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Weir made it clear to hubby Victor Voronov -- him straying on Victor was inexcusable, but so was Victor vengefully defacing Johnny's Birkin handbags.
Johnny sent a remorseful email to Victor on Sept. 29, 2013 -- obtained by TMZ -- in which Johnny did a full-blown mea culpa for his misdeeds, but went on to scold Victor for destroying his precious purses.
Johnny writes, "If you decide to wreck things, please wreck cheaper things than Birkins." He goes on ..."The f*** you on the Birkin is kinda cool, though, you artist. I know you don't care about how I'll survive if you divorce me, but please leave my Birkin bags, Celine bags and Chanel bags alone."
It appears Johnny may be a little cash-strapped, because he says "I'm planning them as part of my eBay sale."
Johnny is incredibly remorseful in the email, expressing "eternal" love from "the depths of my broken heart."
So now it's clear ... Victor wasn't Johnny's only beloved accessory.
Allegations of Shakedown
In Vicious Divorce
3/20/2014 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Weir has been gracious about his divorce from husband Victor Simon Weir-Voronov ... but TMZ Sports has learned the breakup is not just bitter ... it's vicious, with allegations of a shakedown.
Sources connected with Johnny tell TMZ Sports ... on Wednesday Victor's people called Johnny's lawyer and said a media outlet had contacted them offering money for an interview. Johnny's people say Victor's lawyer said his client would turn down the interview IF Johnny paid him $25,000 for lawyers fees, plus support.
Victor's people admit they did mention the interview and asked for support ... but the 2 were not connected.
And there's more. Victor claims Johnny blindsided him ... that he found out only Tuesday Johnny filed for divorce. But sources connected with Johnny say Victor is lying.
We know Victor is already on his second divorce lawyer. Johnny's people say that doesn't sound like a guy who just found out.
Check out the pics of Johnny during the Olympics. He's NOT wearing his wedding ring.
The divorce docs were actually filed with the court February 12. Our Johnny sources say Weir told Victor shortly after he pulled the trigger that the docs were in court. Sources connected with Victor say BS ... they both threatened divorce for the last year, but Victor never knew Johnny would go through with it.
To show how bitter it's gotten ... Johnny is asking the judge to make Victor pay his lawyer's fees and other costs connected to the divorce.
