A 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist Has Been Sued by Her Parents

A couple months ago, Tianna Madison was literally sitting on top of the world after she won the gold medal in the 4x100m relay at the 2012 Summer Olympics. Now, the United States track and field star is being sued by her parents. On Thursday, Jo Ann and Robert Madison filed a libel, slander and defamation lawsuit against their daughter in Cleveland's Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court

According to The Chronicle-Telegram, Tianna's parents are claiming that their daughter falsely accused them of mismanaging her money and allowing a boy who molested her to enter their home while their daughter was present. Jo Ann and Robert are reportedly seeking $50,000 in compensatory and punitive damages.
