Chrissy Teigen has offered to pay gymnast McKayla Maroney's £72,000 fine if she speaks out about the abuse she experienced at the hands of USA team doctor Larry Nassar.

Following Teigen's offer, actress Bell and the creator of TV show Parks And Recreation, Michael Schur, offered to share the cost of the fine with her.

Convicted sexual predator Larry Nassar wrote a letter to the court begging to end the witness statements because it was bad for his health, calling the whole thing a "media circus" that was "detrimental to his mental health".

Former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar is now awaiting sentencing in MI for molesting over 100 female athletes under the guise of medical treatment. "You need to talk to these issues with a therapist, and that is not me".

Criminal prosecutors are calling for the disgraced doctor to be sentenced to life in prison after he pleaded guilty to molesting dozens of teenage gymnasts while he was their doctor at major sporting competitions, including four Olympic Games.

The name displayed during the marches was "Korea", although the North and South competed separately for medals. The Winter Olympics will be held next month in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Stephens was the first of almost 100 women who are expected to submit impact statements during the four-day trial.

As you may know, Larry Nassar was outed as a sexual predator by a plethora of women, who many of which were Olympic gold medalists and contestants.

"Dr. Nassar told me that I was receiving 'medically necessary treatment that he had been performing on patients for over 30 years, '" Maroney said in a statement she originally posted on Twitter, but has since deleted. And she reacted to Nassar's complaint with mild bemusement at certain points, and fiery incredulity at others.

"It is impossibly hard to relive these experiences and it breaks my heart even more to think that as I work towards my dream of competing in Tokyo 2020, I will have to continually return to the same training facility where I was abused", she wrote. But she may have already violated the agreement when she revealed in October 2017 that Nassar sexually abused her from the time she was 13 to age 20.

She told the court Nassar repeatedly abused her from the age of six until the age of 12 during family visits to his home in Holt, near Lansing.
