Gabby Douglas

Chaos in NYC

8/14/2012 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The East Coast leg of Gabby Douglas' post-Olympic media blitz started right at JFK yesterday ... 'cause the second she stepped off the plane she was SWARMED by fans, autograph seekers and paparazzi.

Thanks to some help from the NYPD, the 16-year-old gold medal winner made it to her waiting SUV without incident.

Gabby's a valuable commodity these days -- according to Forbes, she's expected to rake in between $5 and $10 million in sponsorship deals over the next 4 years.

That's really great! Now she can pay for college, and if she's a really good daughter (which I'm sure she is), she can pay off her mothers loans. After all she did sacrifice everything to get her to the gold.

Good for her. The frenzy won't last but will die down to a dull roar. I hope her mother keeps her as well grounded as she seems to have in the past. She will have a bright future if her feet are kept on the ground, so to speak.

Swarmed by fans? Looks liike a bunch of photogs trying to make money by taking her picture and two people trying to get her autograph so they can try and make money selling that. Shes also be trying to get a contract from Mcdonalds by using slogans like "I'm loving it" and I eat McMuffins.


No fans, just a bunch of people trying to make money.

Good for her. She not only represent our country with class but she also showed the world that even through hard times perseverance, dedication and a strong mother can get you through it to reach your goals. She's only 16 with the rest of her life in front of her. I have 2 daughters and Gabby is the role model I want for them. Not that Miley girl! I look forward in seeing your career excel. Thank you and Good luck Gabby. The USA has your back!
