However, the relationship could not witness the Olympic finish as the couple parted their ways. Jhonny announced his divorce with his Russian husband Victor on Twitter on March 19, 2014. On his Twitter, he wrote,

"It is with great sadness that I announce that my husband and I are no longer together. My heart hurts, and I wish him well."

While talking with Access Hollywood, Jhonny opened up about his relationship with his ex-husband before their marriage took the sharp turn. Victor was shy about opening up his sexuality but came front only a month before his marriage. Jhonny stated, 

“My husband was actually in the closet until about a month before we married,”

He added as he shares his marriage experience, 

“Being married is an adjustment and I’m such an OCD, solitary, confined person that it was very hard to open my life and my home and, in some ways, my closet to somebody else. That was the hardest thing to get over, but being married is blissful.”

Well, all couple do hit the bumps in their road and being a gay couple come with next level of challenge. He expressed that being married to a guy is far different than what he imagined it to be. He shared, 

“We’re both constantly trying to fight to wear the pants in the relationship."

However, Jhonny was shocked by the abrupt ending of his marriage.
