While busy celebrating her new title as wife, Simone Biles took to Twitter to share a brief statement about some of the hate she received after sharing photos with her fans of her wedding.
As Mamas Uncut previously reported, Simone Biles surprised her followers over the weekend when she shared photos of her intimate wedding to her now husband, NFL player Jonathan Owens.
And while Biles looked STUNNING on their special day, several women took to the comments section of her post to criticize how Biles choose to style her hair. Some criticized her for not “laying her edges,” claiming it looked “unkempt,” BuzzFeed reports.
Noir wrote, “Simone Biles is one of THEE top gymnasts we’ve ever seen, has overcame situations of abuse and other obstacles in her childhood, has defined her own success and found love and is now happily married…And y’all worried about her hair…..?!”

Under her new name, Simone Biles Owens, the gymnast wrote, “I think they also forget I live in HOUSTON TEXAS & I sweat those out!! soon as we stepped outside for pics. But they can keep complaining idc idc idc.”
On April 22, the gymnast took to Instagram to share several gorgeous photos of her and Jonathan Owens’ private nuptials.
While it’s unclear when the newlyweds plan on having a bigger ceremony with their family and friends in attendance, the happy couple joined the growing trend of celebrating their love with a small intimate ceremony.
The photos showed Biles in a gorgeous white dress with her hair pulled back in a slick ponytail, while she held a gorgeous bouquet of white flowers. Owens wore a beige suit with white loafers.
The couple looked elated to finally be husband and wife as they exchanged vows in front of a justice of the peace.
Biles and Owens first got engaged in February 2022. At the time, Biles shared a photo of the special moment, writing, “THE EASIEST YES! I can’t wait to spend forever & ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married, FIANCÉ!”
