The bad news is, she has seen some of the negative comments about her hair. The good news is, she could care less!

During a recent interview, Gabby responded to her critics by saying:

“What’s wrong with my hair? I’m like, ‘I just made history and people are focused on my hair?’ It can be bald or short, it doesn’t matter about (my) hair.”

Following her response, word came that Gabby’s mother, Natalie Hawkins filed for bankruptcy prior to the Olympics. Sources say that Ms. Hawkins is 79K in debt and spent her whole life savings to support her daughter’s career. Advertising experts estimate that Gabby stands to earn up to 10 Million in endorsements so it looks like her mom should be back in financial shape in no time!
