On Tuesday, the victims of Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics team doctor, will speak out in a MI court as part of his criminal sentencing.

In an emotional statement, Biles, a star of the Rio Games, said she would not let Nassar "steal my love and joy".

In her statement Monday, Biles said she was "reluctant to share" her story for several reasons but had come to realize the abuse was not her fault.

Three former US Olympians have accused Nassar of sexual abuse, including Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney.

Biles is the latest high-profile athlete to accuse the former USA Gymnastics team doctor of sexual misconduct.

According to USA Today, Nassar will be tried on seven sexual assault charges and is expected to be sentence to life in prison this week. Biles said she is now training to the 2020 Olympic Games.

"It is not normal to receive any type of treatment from a trusted team physician and refer to it horrifyingly as the "special" treatment", Biles wrote.

TAG Heuer unveils a smaller 'modular' luxury smartwatch running Android Wear
As far as OS is concerned, it is running Android Wear, however, the company hasn't specified which version though. It starts at a price of U.S. $ 1200 which is less than the USA $1500 starting price of the Connected Modular 45 .

Biles, 20, made the announcement on social media Monday, saying she is one of the "many survivors" that were abused by Nassar and that she is "not afraid to tell (her) story anymore".

The 54-year-old was sentenced to 60 years in prison in December on child pornography charges.

A Michigan Department of Attorney General spokesperson told CNN that the office expects 88 individuals to give victim impact statements about Nassar's allegedly criminal behavior.

"For too long I've asked myself, 'Was I too naive?" We need to make sure something like this never happens again. "I am much more than this".

HollywoodLifers, are you shocked that Simone spoke out about her experience with Nassar?

"Most of you know me as a happy, giggly, and energetic girl", Biles began her message. USA Gymnastics has also been approached for a comment.
