Chrissy Teigen offers to pay McKayla Maroney’s possible $100,000 fine for discussing abuse in court

More than 140 women, including Olympians Aly Raisman , Gabby Douglas, Simone Biles  have said that they were abused by Nassar over the years. Between Tuesday and Thursday, 88 women are expected to give victim impact statements in court.

According to PEOPLE, the former Olympian McKayla Maroney may not be one of the people to give an impact statement. In 2016, she settled a lawsuit against USA Gymnastics. As part of the settlement, she is unable to publicly discuss Nassar, whom she has accused of abuse. If she gives a victim impact statement, she could face a fine of $100,000.

But when model Chrissy Teigen  heard about the possible fine, she took to Twitter to offer a solution.

 The entire principle of this should be fought,” she wrote. “An NDA to stay quiet about this serial monster with over 140 accusers, but I would be absolutely honored to pay this fine for you, McKayla.”

Soon after, actress Kristen Bell also tweeted about Maroney’s possible fine, offering to split it with Teigen and Parks and Recreation creator Mike Schur.

“I’ll split it with you,” Schur tweeted before Bell wrote: “I’ll 1/3 it with you guys.”
