Flashback: Chrissy Teigen Offered To Pay $100K For Justice
One reason Legend and Teigen are so admired as a couple is that they’re not shy about standing up for what’s right. Back in 2018, Chrissy made headlines when she was willing to dig into her pockets to give former Olympics star McKayla Maroney the strength needed to speak out in a sexual assault revelation.
According to reports, the Gold-winning gymnast received a $1.25 million settlement in 2016 from USA Gymnastics after it learned her team doctor Larry Nassar sexually abused her from the age of 13 until 20. As part of the agreement, Maroney is subject to the $100,000 fine if she speaks on the sexual attacks.
Maroney, who was represented by Gloria Allred when she accepted that settlement, said that she was in desperate need of the money due to her deteriorating psychological state and need for treatment as a result of the abuse she suffered at the hands of Nassar. She said at one point she was even thought about taking her own life. She is now suing USA Gymnastics – with her legal team arguing that it was illegal for USA Gymnastics to make Maroney sign a clause demanding her silence about her molestation. (Daily Mail)
