Simone Biles ‘Broke Down’ Over Husband Jonathan Owens’ Viral Interview Backlash: ‘That Really Hurt’

Simone Biles isn’t holding back. Considered one of the greatest gymnasts of all time, the Olympian spoke with Alex Cooper for the April 17 episode of “Call Her Daddy” where she opened up about a range of personal subjects, including her childhood, how she suffered from the “twisties” during the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, and the backlash her husband, NFL star Jonathan Owens, received for his controversial comments on a podcast where he seemingly implied he was the “catch” in their relationship and didn’t know who the iconic athlete was when they first started dating. “I thought it was hilarious at first and then they hurt my feelings,” Simone shared, adding, “One night I broke down and I’m like, ‘Why are you guys talking about my husband like this?’”
