Tonya Harding net worth and salary: Tonya Harding is an American former Olympic figure skater who has a net worth of $30 thousand. Tonya Harding was born on November 12, 1970 in Portland, Oregon. A figure skating champion, Tonya Harding won the 1991 Figure Skating Championships and placed 2nd in the World Championships. She was the first woman in history to land a triple axel in competition. Unfortunately, Tonya is probably most famous for her alleged involvement in a 1994 scandal involving fellow figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. During a practice session for the US Figure Skating Championships in Detroit on January 6, 1994, a man attacked Kerrigan as she stepped off the ice. The man struck Nancy's knee several times in the right knee then fled on foot, bursting through a glass window onto the streets. As it would turn out, the attacker had been hired by Tonya's husband at the time Jeff Gillooly and his friend Shawn Eckhardt. Tonya denied having any prior knowledge of the attack but all three men later contend that she was well aware and even helped plan the events. Tonya was allowed to compete at the 1994 Olympics but her performance flopped and she did not medal. After returning to the United States from Lillehammer, Tonya plead guilty to having knowledge of the attack after-the-fact and not coming forward. She was then banned from figure skating for life. Tonya has struggled over the years and has largely turned into a bit of a pop culture punch line. She married a man named Joseph Jens Price in June 2010 and together they have one child. Tonya has never competed again in figure skating. She has supported herself through a variety of odd jobs including as a waitress and amateur boxer.
