Mckayla maroney opens up on how she connects with Britney spears On a personal level.
The illustrious Olympian took to Instagram on Monday, July 26 to highlight her story as an abuse survivor after previously accusing the team’s doctor Larry Nassar for assaulting her since the age of 13.
“In my experience, talking about abuse is extremely draining physically, mentally and emotionally,” she began her legend. “From a young age, I was taught to work hard and persevere.”
The 25-year-old star explained that she is naturally “a positive and bubbly person”, which is why she said “exposing the abusers and dwelling on all the dark negative elements of my past seemed extremely wrong to me.”
“I hated the depressing tone my life was taking and the way the media portrayed me,” she shared. “I never wanted to be seen as a victim, I just wanted Larry Nassar to be in jail and the people who allowed the abuse to be held accountable.”
