Despite winning two Olympic gold medals under the tutelage of gymnastics coach Liang Chow, Gabby Douglas is parting ways from the Iowa-based coach and moving to Los Angeles.

"She came over (Monday) and said goodbye to us," says Liang Chow's wife Liwen Zhuang to USA Today. "I didn't ask her (the reasons). I did talk to her. She was a little upset. I guess that's a family decision for her."

"We were not really sure for a long time, because we heard from other people first. Nothing was really confirmed. We didn't really know for sure. We heard some rumors. It's kind of awkward."

Now, as Gabby Douglas attempts to go back to the Olympics in 2016, she will reportedly be training with UCLA Associate Head Coach Chris Waller.

But gymnastics is not the only thing Gabby Douglas is doing in Los Angeles.

Most recently, Gabby Douglas appeared on "So You Think You Can Dance" as a guest judge for its finale.

"I love the show, so I definitely wanted to be a guest judge. I know how they feel about being out there and competing. I want to sit down and watch the great, amazing talent. And judge them!" says Douglas according to Zap2it.
