That link was covered in popups and crap and I had a bit of trouble reading it... but it's all over other sources like if anyone else was having trouble reading.  I also saw separately that her Dad is fighting a medical license suspension for fentanyl use (he's an anesthesiologist who was caught taking the med for personal use and let me tell you... no one uses that drug recreationally) and I'd be willing to bet that has a lot to do with what's going on with her.  It was easy to see that something was going on and I think a lot of people assumed that she was having issues with weight, etc., but now it seems like there's some deep family issues here.  I really feel for her.  I've seen people on fentanyl and I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

Here's the Phillip Hersh article: http://www.globetrottingbyphiliphersh.com/home/2017/9/1/gracie-gold-figure-skating-olympics
