Simone Biles in Therapy, Takes Anxiety Meds Over Larry Nassar Abuse

By TheBlast Staff

Simone Biles says the longterm damage done by convicted sex offender Larry Nassar has put her in therapy.

The gold medal Olympic gymnast appeared Tuesday morning on "GMA" to sit down with Robin Roberts to talk about her succesful run at the recent World Gymnastic Championships.

Biles took home 6 medals from those games, and says the event was a highlight of the year.

Roberts directed the interview to former Team USA doctor, Larry Nassar, and asked how Biles is able to process such a harrowing situation.

The 21-year-old tumbler said it's, "Definitely not easy," admitting, "I have my ups and downs."


Biles revealed that she goes to therapy "pretty regularly," and is on anxiety medicine to help treat the longterm emotional damage suffered at the hands of Nassar, who is currently rotting behind bars.

Earlier this year, Biles revealed she was one of the many young gymnasts molested, explaining, "I am not afraid to tell my story anymore. I too am one of the many survivors that was sexually abused by Larry Nassar."

As we reported, Nassar is currently trying to avoid being deposed by Biles' teammate, Aly Raisman, and USA Gymnastics just filed for bankruptcy as they prepare to pay out the many victims.
