It seems that Tonya Harding can’t keep out of the spotlight. In her latest TV interview, Harding told the world that she had been violently abused by her mother wielding a steak knife, and that she was threatened by her ex-husband at gun point.
Following the release of a biopic based on her life and the events surrounding the 1994 Olympics, Harding has come back under scrutiny for her role in the attack on fellow athlete Nancy Kerrigan. Kerrigan was brutally injured with a crowbar.
It was later found that Harding’s then-boyfriend and bodyguard had planned the assault, but she herself was never connected to the incident.
In the interview, Harding says that her mother constantly attacked her, and at one point (enacted in the movie) threw a knife at her which became lodged in her arm.
She went on to say that her ex-husband, Jeff Gilooly, cornered her after their divorce and pointed a gun at her face and then at his own head.
Now, her former loved ones are going on record to deny these claims, and her agent has decided to ditch her following “an impasse.”
