Michael Rosenberg is reportedly out!
Apparently, Tonya Harding‘s longtime representative quit this week after the two couldn’t reach an agreement on what the press can and cannot ask the former figure skater.
According to a Facebook post reportedly from Rosenberg’s page and shared via Olympic reporters Christine Brennan and Philip Hersh, Harding blocked journalists from “asking her anything ‘about the past’ or they will be fined $25,000.”
That’s a bit difficult when, you know, you’re famous because of things that happened over 20 years ago, and there’s an Awards movie out about it…
“Unfortunately, we reached an impasse today regarding how to treat the press in the future. Her [Harding’s] adamant and final position is that reporters must sign an affidavit stating that they won’t ask her anything ‘about the past’ or they will be fined $25,000. Obviously, it doesn’t work that way; and therefore I’ve chosen to terminate our business relationship.”

It appears Tonya Harding is up to her old tricks. Her loyal agent/publicist Michael Rosenberg resigned today over Tonya’s insistence that reporters be fined $25,000 if they ask her anything about the past. Here’s his FB post…”I, Tonya” is “Goodbye, Tonya!” pic.twitter.com/5BqLuLLLDE

The authenticity of the post has yet to be confirmed as it is not visible on Rosenberg’s page, but this seems legit! Stay tuned.
