Model Chrissy Teigen offers to pay $100K fine so McKayla Maroney can speak at Larry Nassar abuse sentencing

Model Chrissy Teigen offers to pay $  100K fine so McKayla Maroney can speak at Larry Nassar abuse sentencingModel Chrissy Teigen has offered to pay the reported $ 100,000 (£72,594) fine to release gymnast McKayla Maroney from her non-disclosure agreement about Larry Nassar, who she alleges abused her. Maroney said in a lawsuit last year that she was paid to keep quiet about the allegations, and signed a non-disclosure agreement. After alleging she suffered sexual abuse and "years of psychological trauma", she reached a settlement with USA Gymnastics in December 2016, but the terms of the agreement weren’t disclosed in court papers. According to reports, the agreement includes a $ 100,000 fine if she speaks publicly about the allegations, and she is now suing USA gymnastics, with her legal team arguing that it was illegal for to make Maroney sign a clause demanding her silence. She first broke the terms of her agreement in October last year when she shared a post on Twitter, saying she thought she was "going to die" as he performed abusive "treatments" on her. The entire principle of this should be fought – an NDA to stay quiet about this serial monster with over 140 accusers, but I would be absolutely honored to pay this fine for you, McKayla. pic.twitter.com/lsBEgEqZpD— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 16, 2018 Maroney claimed that the abuse started when she was 13 and attending a U.S. national team training camp in Houston. "Dr. Nassar told me that I was receiving 'medically necessary treatment that he had been performing on patients for over 30 years'," Maroney, 22, said. "It seemed whenever and wherever this man could find the chance, I was 'treated.' It happened in London before my team and I won the gold medal, and It happened before I won my silver."

USA Gymnastics cannot speak to the mediation process, which is confidential and privileged under California law." Maroney's attorney John Manly said: "I want people to understand that this kid had no choice. She couldn't function. She couldn't work. "It takes tremendous courage to publicly disclose it, knowing that any day there could be a process server at her door." Dozens of women, including members of the famed gold-medal-winning "Fierce Five" team of US gymnasts, accused Nassar of abuse while he was in his role of USA Gymnastics doctor.

"There are many reasons that I have been reluctant to share my story, but I know now that it is not my fault." The sentencing of the disgraced doctor is taking place this week, as women give their testimonies at the abuse they say they suffered at his hands.
