Tonight we are learning about another chapter in his past, another allegation. Abc's amy robach tells us this news about the olympic star. Reporter: Today in south africa, oscar pistorius's lawyers are trying to reach a settlement with another woman who accused him of assault in 2009 and called the police. Pistorius sued her because he said it ruined his reputation and caused him to lose endorsement deals. Even though no assault charges were ever filed. Until two weeks ago, it seemed oscar pistorius could do no wrong. Because it's such a compelling, heart-warming story of a young man putting those carbon fiber blades on. There were millions of people with disabilities around the world cheering for him. Reporter: An icon on a ped stol, at least on the track. We don't know oscar pistorius. Wr what we're finding out is surprising. He's living a fast life, fast cars, dirt bikes, pet tigers and a passion for weapons. One of the things he would do, I'm amped, let's go to the shooting range. I thought it was bizarre then and in the light of day, even more bizarre now. Modern south africa is no post apartheid utopia, it's a very dangerous place. Every single house, barbed wire. Reporter: Last year after a series of jealous texts over an 18-year-old girlfriend, police say pistorius told another man he would break his legs. I was amazed. I was taken aback.
