In November, former Team USA doctor Larry Nassar pled guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct, and on Tuesday, his sentencing began.

Nassar has been accused of abusing more than 140 women, including gymnasts McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, and Gabby Douglas.

On Monday, Simone Biles became the latest athlete to go public with her account against Nassar. 

She revealed in a chilling statement that she, too, is "one of the many survivors that was sexually abused" by the former doctor. 

On Instagram, Biles posted a detailed account of the repeated abuse.

"Most of you know me as a happy, giggly, and energetic girl," Biles began. "But lately....I've felt a bit broken, and the more I try to shut off the voice in my head, the louder it screams. I am not afraid to tell my story anymore."

"I, too, am one of the many survivors that was sexually abused by Larry Nassar," she continued. "Please believe me when I say it was a lot harder to first speak those words out loud than it is now to put them on paper. There are many reasons that I have been reluctant to share my story, but I know now it is not my fault."

She called Nassar's behavior "completely unacceptable, disgusting, and abusive."

"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 noted. "This behavior is completely unacceptable, disgusting, and abusive, especially coming from someone whom I was TOLD to trust."

Biles said she blamed herself at first, but she refuses to carry the guilt that belongs to Nassar. 

"For too long I've asked myself, 'Was I too naive? Was it my fault?'," she wrote. "I now know the answer to those questions. No. No, it was not my fault. No, I will not and should not carry the guilt that belongs to Larry Nassar, USAG, and others."

She now has to return to the training facility where she was abused.

"It is impossibly difficult to relive these experiences and it breaks my heart even more to think that as I work towards my dream of competing in Tokyo 2020, I will have to continually return to the same training facility where I was abused," Biles noted.

After sharing her heartbreaking #MeToo, Biles asked fans to respect her privacy as she tries to move forward.

"As I continue to work through the pain, I kindly ask everyone to respect my privacy," Biles concluded. "This is a process, and one that I need more time to work through."

Biles' teammate Aly Raisman quickly offered her words of support.

"I am so proud of you," Raisman wrote, sharing Biles' statement. "You are incredible Simone. I stand with you. I am shaking reading your post. I know we will all get through this together."

USA Gymnastics also issued a response to Biles’ statement later Monday evening.

“USA Gymnastics is absolutely heartbroken, sorry and angry that Simone Biles or any of our athletes have been harmed by the horrific acts of Larry Nassar,” the organization told HuffPost in a statement. “USA Gymnastics’ support is unwavering for Simone and all athletes who courageously came forward to share their experiences.  We are our athletes’ advocates. USA Gymnastics will continue to listen to our athletes and our members in our efforts of creating a culture of empowerment with a relentless focus on athlete safety every single day.”
