American singer and songwriter, Lady Gaga has revealed details of how a music producer took advantage of her and raped her for several months while she was still a teenager.
Lady Gaga revealed that when she was 19-year-old, a music producer sexually abused her for several months while she was locked up in a studio.
She added that the person who raped her got her pregnant during the saga before he finally dropped her off on a corner near her parents’ house after many months of abuse.
She made the revelation during an interview in Oprah Winfrey’s “The Me You Can’t See on Apple TV”, in which she described the experience as one of the darkest moments of her life.
According to her, “I felt a lot of pain when the person who raped me dropped me off pregnant on a corner, at my parent’s house, after months of abuse.
“He locked me away in a studio for months.
“I had a total psychotic breakdown and for a couple years, I was not the same girl.
“Even if I have six brilliant months, all it takes is getting triggered once to feel bad.
“And when I say I feel bad, I mean thinking about dying. I learned all the ways to pull myself out of it.
“I don’t tell this story for my own self-service, because, to be honest, it’s hard to tell,” she said.
“I feel a lot of shame about it. How do I explain to people that I have privilege, I’ve got money and power but I’m miserable?”
Lady Gaga however added that she’s not telling her story to get public sympathy but as part of her healing process and to help others in similar situations.
“I’m not saying my story because I want people to cry for me. I’m good, but to heal you have to open your heart up to somebody.
“I’ve been through it and I know people need help. So, that’s part of my healing, being able to talk to you. I don’t ever want to face that person again,” she added.
