In December 2023, Jonathan Owens, Chicago Bears player and husband of Olympic star Simone Biles, went on “The Pivot” podcast and talked about how they met. During his story, Owens mentioned how he felt he was the “catch” in the relationship, and he didn’t know Biles was an all-time gymnast before they started dating.


Owens caught backlash for both of those statements, but Biles initially stood up for Owens and let everyone know what he said wasn’t a big deal. Fast forward to now, and Biles opened up on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast about how she later felt about the comments that people were making. Biles also clarified Owens’ statements he made on the podcast in December.


“First of all, that interview had nothing to do with me,” Biles said. “It was all for him. So, I think they were mad that he didn’t include me in the interview, but he has to have his moments, too, and I let him have it.

“He never said I wasn’t a catch,” Biles continued. “He said he was a catch because he is. I’ve never met a man like him. A lot of people that meet him are like ‘Oh my gosh. I want a man like that, like Jonathan.'”


The lauded athlete said the comments were funny at first, but then they started to affect her.

“I thought it was hilarious what people were saying like ‘Divorce him.’ All of this crazy stuff. And he doesn’t even like to say divorce,” Biles said. “So I thought it was hilarious at first, and then they hurt my feelings. One night, I broke down, and I’m like, ‘Why are you guys talking about my husband like this?’ You don’t know who he is, and if anybody met him, you know he’s the sweetest guy [and] will do anything for anybody. For me, it’s, like, talk about me all you want, but don’t come for my family — never.”
