It hasn't been a good year for Lance Armstrong, and it's about to get even worse.

Stephen Swart, a cyclist from New Zealand, says he was paid $50,000 for not "attacking" Armstrong during his pursuit of the Triple Crown in 1993, according to ABC News. Swart made this information known under oath in 2006 when he was in court for an Armstrong-related case. 

Armstrong has already reportedly tested positive for performance-enhacing drugs. He was then forced to step down from the Livestrong Foundation, and Nike cut ties with him in the past few days.
