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!
