Tonya Harding Admits She ‘Knew Something Was Up’ Before Nancy Kerrigan Attack

Tonya Harding

The truth comes out.

As you surely know, Tonya Harding received a fine, probation, and community service after her ex-husband and “bodyguard” ordered an attack on Nancy Kerrigan during practice for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in 1994. Harding was also stripped of her most recent national championship title and banned for life from U.S. Figure Skating.

Up until now, the defamed figure skater (whose life was documented in the new movie I, Tonya) has also denied having any knowledge of the plan, but she did plead guilty to conspiring to hinder the prosecution of those responsible.

In the ABC News two-hour special Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story airing on January 11, the 47-year-old admits she “knew something was up” before Kerrigan was taken out.

While she doesn’t say she knew the exact plan, Tonya did “overhear” the assailants talking about how “maybe we should take somebody out so we can make sure she gets on the team.”

She explained before noting she “absolutely” believes she was “a pawn”:

“I go, ├óΓé¼╦£What the hell are you talking about?'”
