Chrissy Teigen Offers to Pay McKayla Maroney's NDA Fines

Chrissy Teigen Would Be "Honored" to Pay McKayla Maroney's Fine For Speaking Out About Abuse

Nearly 100 women are set to make victim impact statements at the sentencing hearing of former USA Gymnastics team doctor and sexual predator Larry Nassar, giving testimonies about the traumatic impact of his abuse, but Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney is not one of them. That is, unless Chrissy Teigen has something to say about it. When the model and chef discovered that Maroney, one of Nassar's 140 alleged victims, could be faced with a six-figure fine for speaking about her experience due to a nondisclosure agreement in her abuse settlement with USA Gymnastics, she offered to pay the $100,000 on Maroney's behalf.

Teigen tweeted a screenshot of Daily Mail's headline regarding the potential consequences Maroney would face if she made her own victim statement and condemned the entire concept of an NDA about abuse as an affront:

After revealing her abuse in October 2017, Maroney shared an emotional victim impact letter with the court ahead of Nassar's child pornography sentencing — a move that fellow Team USA medalist and abuse victim Aly Raisman will now make during this round of sentencing for his other serial abuse charges.

Maroney and Raisman's teammate Gabby Douglas also came forward as a victim of Nassar's abuse in November 2017, and 2016 Team USA gymnast Simone Biles revealed her own horrific experiences with Nassar only days ago:

These gymnasts' stories are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the horrors being discussed during Nassar's sentencing, and hopefully with the support of people like Teigen, previously silenced victims like Maroney will also be able to share their stories and see justice done for all.
