Tisha Campbell-Martin Opens Up About Being Sexually Abused As A Child
Tisha Campbell-Martin has opened up about her own experience with sexual abuse. During an interview for E!’s Daily PopCampbell discussed Simone Biles and the abuse she faced at the hands of former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, before revealing her own experience with abuse. “I will say I’m very open about me being sexually abused when I was three years old. And when children, especially in their formative years, have something like that happen to them, it’s devastating,” she said. “I told, I told right away, right away I told. I had a father who was a big guy and I trusted that he would protect me. So I told my dad immediately, but it still affects you later on in life.”

Campbell’s revelation comes after Biles and numerous other young women spoke out against Nassar. In January, the Olympian revealed that she was abused by the former doctor, sharing on social media, “I too am one of the many survivors that was sexually abused by Larry Nassar.” Nassar, who abused over 250 women and girls, was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison.  Since his sentencing, the entire USA gymnastics board has stepped down.
