Brother’s arrest not first time Simone Biles has faced family turmoil

The arrest of the champion Olympic gymnast Simone Biles’ brother in connection with a triple-murder was not the first time the young gold medalist has faced turmoil within her family.

Tevin Biles-Thomas, 24, was arrested Thursday night in Georgia and charged with murder in a New Year’s Eve shooting in Cleveland that left three people dead. He is one of Biles’ three siblings.

Biles, 22, who is the most decorated American gymnast of all time, has written about her struggle growing up in and out of foster care when she was a child.

“My birth mother suffered from drug addiction, and when I was just 3 years old, my siblings and I were removed from her custody,” she wrote in an op-ed for CNN last year. “From there, we bounced around until I was 6 and my grandparents made the brave move to adopt us.”

Biles and her younger sister were adopted by Nellie and Ron Biles, their grandparents, while Biles-Thomas and another sister were adopted by Ron Biles’ sister. Biles has said she considers Ron and Nellie to be her father and mother.
