BUZZ: Monica Aldama Accused of Concealing Sexual Assault in Lawsuit

Monica Aldama, the star of the popular Netflix docuseries “Cheer”, is being accused of telling a former student to “keep quiet” about being sexually assaulted. According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Madi Lane, a former cheerleader at Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas, claims she was sexually assaulted by teammate Salvatore “Salvo” Amico during her first semester there.

Lane claims that after her then-roommate invited a group of guys over to their dorm room after a night of partying, Amico climbed into bed with her and began ripping off her clothing. Despite screaming and begging him to stop, Lane claims Amico groped her chest and inserted his fingers inside her before she was able fight him off.

When Lane told Aldama what allegedly happened, she claims the coach told her, “Let’s not make this a big deal. I want the best for you and I will help you cheer wherever you want.” Lane also claims one of the “veteran” cheerleaders, Maddy Brum, told her the same thing: “We don’t tell anyone. We just keep it to ourselves.”

Lane says that after she quit the team a week later, Aldama reportedly told her to “keep quiet” if she wanted to continue her collegiate career in cheerleading. This threat of being “blackballed” from other programs for coming forward about the alleged assault caused Lane to lose her dream of competing on a nationally ranked team.

This isn’t the first time the cheerleading competition series has been under scrutiny. Last year, another one of the show’s cheerleaders, Jerry Harris, was sentenced to 12 years behind bars for soliciting naked pictures of underage boys. Harris had also allegedly solicited sex from minors at cheerleading competitions.

Reps for Aldama did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
