Dancing with the Stars Evan Lysacek: “I let my personal feelings cloud my judgement”

By Greg Hernandez

Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek is clarifying comments he made about fellow pro figure skater Johnny Weir.

Evan, currently competing in Dancing with the Stars, tells ET.com: “Johnny Weir is an accomplished and talented skater, and I’ve skated alongside him as part of Team USA for many years. Since the Olympics, I’ve dealt with Johnny’s questioning my integrity and sexuality, and I’ve never spoken out on my own behalf no matter how hurtful those things may have been.”

Evan has been juggling his DWTS gig with performances on the Smucker’s Stars on Ice tour which the flamboyant Weir had been excluded from because he was not “family friendly” enough.
