Simone Biles Takes Anxiety Meds, Therapy Over Larry Nassar Sexual Abuse

Breaking News

U.S. Olympic superstar Simone Biles says she’s still traumatized from the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of Larry Nassar … and has sought professional help for treatment. 

Biles appeared on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday where Robin Roberts asked her how she’s been able to handle the emotional rollercoaster connected to the Nassar scandal. 

“It’s definitely not easy,” Biles said … “I have my ups and downs. I still go to therapy and I’m on anxiety medication now.”

“I had a lot of ups and downs throughout the year and trying to figure out what was wrong and so I go to therapy pretty regularly and it’s not easy but the people surrounding me are some of the best so it makes it a little easier.”

Roberts thanked Biles for being so open about her treatment and said, “Bless you for taking care of you like you’re doing.”

Back in January, Biles revealed she — like scores of gymnasts — was abused by the former Team USA gymnastics doctor. 

“I’ve felt a bit broken and the more I try to shut off the voice in my head the louder it screams,” Biles posted on social media back in January along with the hashtag #MeToo.

“I am not afraid to tell my story anymore.”

Nassar is currently serving a 60 year sentence in federal prison for child porn — and has been sentenced to up to 175 more years for sexually abusing more than 140 athletes.

Adrian Peterson I Still Use Switch To Discipline Kids … After Child Abuse Case

Breaking News

Adrian Peterson says he still disciplines his children using a switch … despite nearly going to jail for striking his infant son with one 4 years ago.

You’ll remember … the NFL superstar beat his then-4-year-old child with a switch so badly in 2014 — the boy had bruises and lacerations on his lower back, buttocks and scrotum.

A.P. was charged with felony child abuse … but was able to get that charge reduced to misdemeanor domestic violence after striking a plea deal in exchange for a no contest plea.

Peterson — in addition to serving out a lengthy NFL suspension — was sentenced to 80 hours of community service and ordered to pay a $ 4,000 fine.

Adrian said afterward he would find different ways to punish his kids, saying, “I won’t ever use a switch again.”

But … fast forward to now — and Peterson is singing a different tune, telling Bleacher Report he not only still uses a switch to discipline his kids sometimes … he also recently used a belt too.

“I had to discipline my son and spank him the other day with a belt,” Peterson said.

For his part … A.P. says he doesn’t take the punishments as far as he did back in 2014 — claiming he uses the physical discipline only far enough to teach his children lessons he feels they need to learn.

“My kids love me. When they want something, they come ask dad,” A.P. says … “They enjoy being around me.”

David Eason Posts Racy Pic of Jenelle Evans Following Abuse Allegations

Earlier today, we reported on news that Jenelle Evans was rushed to a hospital last week following an altercation with her husband, David Eason.

Neither party has addressed the allegations publicly — but that doesn't mean they're ignoring this latest scandal. 

Far from it, in fact.

Jenelle just issues a bizarre statement through her rep, while David — well David keeps finding new ways to hit rock bottom.

And this time, fans aren't putting up with his boorish behavior:

1. Bad Times on the Land

David and Jenelle have endured many, many ups and downs over the course of their brief marriage, but this might be the couple’s lowest point yet.

2. An Ugly Altercation

According to police reports first obtained by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, two police cars and an ambulance were dispatched to Jenelle and David’s home in response to a domestic disturbance on Saturday, October 13.

3. The Report

“It was called in as an assault,” says the Chief of 911 Operations for Columbus County.

4. The Result

“The female was advised proper action,” says the Operations Chief. “[The officers] advised what legal action she could take.” The source adds that Jenelle chose not to press charges.

5. Downplaying the Situation?

She also refused ambulance transport to the hospital. “The female was transported to the hospital via private vehicle instead,” says the police insider.

6. Explaining It Away

In the hours since news of the assault went public, Jenelle has continued to try and convince fans that there’s no need to be concerned.

Jenelle Evans Attempts to Get David Eason Re-Hired Amidst Abuse Allegations

It's been almost a year since David Eason was fired from Teen Mom 2, and saying he hasn't been missed by viewers would be a massive understatement.

Judging from reactions on social media, most TM2 fans are glad to be rid of David, and they wish Jenelle would follow him out the door.

Evans, however, remains committed to her goal of forcing MTV to rehire her husband.

Needless to say, that campaign is going very poorly so far — especially since Jenelle couldn't have picked a worse time to try and rebuild David's public image.

1. A One-Income Household

Jenelle’s motives for trying to strongarm her MTV bosses into rehiring David are quite simple. After all, it’s not like she’s the type to selflessly accept the role of sole breadwinner.

2. Doubling Down

Jenelle earns upwards of $ 300,000 for each season of Teen Mom 2. David was never paid nearly that much, but no doubt his income served as a nice supplement to Jenelle’s.

3. Even Angrier Than Usual

Jenelle is currently filming the upcoming season of TM2, and she’s made no secret of the fact that she’s very pissed off by her husband’s continued unemployment.

4. One of Her Famous Rants

Jenelle recently bit the hand that feeds her in a major way, unleashing a full-blown social media rant against Teen Mom 2 producers.

5. Boring, Boring, Boring

Jenelle informed fans that the show’s new season will be painfully boring, largely due to the absence of Eason.

6. Really Going In

It seems Jenelle’s bosses aren’t crazy about her attempts to torpedo ratings, but she’s showing no signs of holding back …
