McKayla Maroney says Larry Nassar manipulated her with food

McKayla Maroney attends the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children's 2018 Luncheon on April 17 in New Yo

In a Sunday " broadcast that airs April 22 at 7 p.m. on NBC, Guthrie interviews former USA Gymnastics National Team Coordinators Bela and Martha Karolyi, who speak for the first time on what is seen as the largest - and most shocking - sex abuse scandal in the history of Olympic sports.

Thursday afternoon in Houston, another Nassar victim held a press conference regarding a lawsuit she has filed against the former doctor.

A press conference is being held regarding lawsuits filed against Larry Nassar, USA Gymnastics and the International Gymnastics Federation, in relation to sexual abuse by Nassar.

Bela Karolyi coached U.S. gymnast Mary Lou Retton to 1984 Los Angeles Olympic gold only three years after defecting from Romania to the United States. They have been named in lawsuits. She produced a February, 2017 piece on USA Gymnastics for the CBS newsmagazine, which is a finalist for a Peabody Award. And some gymnasts have come forward to complain about training methods that created a generation of champions but took an emotional toll.

"I would've starved at the Olympics if I didn't have him bring me food", Maroney said, adding that Nassar bought her a loaf of bread.

"Kaylee's statements to the board contained many false and inaccurate statements, which we did not publicly contradict out of an abundance of concern for the survivors who are quick to claim "revictimization" or "shaming" of survivors whenever they are falsely accusing members of the MSU community", Viventi said. She tells Savannah Guthrie in "no way" did she suspect Larry Nassar was sexually abusing athletes. He's now serving three concurrent prison sentences of up to 175 years for sexual assault and child pornography.

Facebook Ordered to Face Lawsuit Over Facial Recognition
The suit wants damages of up to $5,000 (£3,482) for every time a person's image was used without their permission. Facebook faces a class-action lawsuit over its use of facial recognition technology to tag people in photos.

Moreover, the experts' explanations were "fallacious at best" and only "provided circular justifications" for what Nassar claimed were legitimate medical treatments, the report states. Michigan State has seen a president resign and a dean arrested on misdemeanor charges associated with accusations he mishandled a complaint about Nassar in 2014.

Per ESPN.com, the Karolyis are listed as defendants in multiple civil lawsuits against Nassar and USA Gymnastics.

In other cases, MSU destroyed medical records of people who reported abuse or harassment to MSU police later, but they were all destroyed in accordance with state law and MSU's record retention policy, according to the report.

She also took aim at the institutions - USA Gymnastics, the United States Olympic Committee and Michigan State University - which she has accused of allowing Nassar to thrive as a predator. The 18-year-old from Shelby Township says interim MSU president John Engler discussed a payoff with her during a closed door meeting last month. "What reason did I have to question my doctor?"

Maroney, pictured here in 2013, retired from gymnastics in 2016. The organization said in January it wouldn't seek to punish Maroney if she chose to break the agreement.

"The whole thing is just like an explosion, a bomb exploding", Bela Karolyi said in the NBC interview, a portion of which was shown Friday on the "Today" programme. "Because of the stuff I'm dealing with now".
