Olympian McKayla Maroney: I was paid to keep quiet about abuse


Olympic gold-medal-winning gymnast McKayla Maroney alleges in a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles that USA Gymnastics paid her to be quiet about abuse by the team’s longtime doctor Larry Nassar.

The lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court also names as defendants Michigan State University, the US Olympic Committee and Nassar, the former team doctor who has admitted sexually abusing underage girls.
MSU spokesman Jason Cody said the university does not comment on ongoing litigation. CNN is seeking comment from an attorney for Nassar and from the US Olympic Committee.
