Queen Latifah has revealed she was a victim of childhood sexual abuse.
According to perezhilton.com, Latifah revealed in an interview that a teenage babysitter preyed upon her as a child, which manifested into difficulties with her adult relationships.
“He violated me,” shares Latifah in the new issue of Essence. “I never told anybody. I just buried it as deeply as I could and kept people at an arms length. I never really let a person get too close to me. I could have been married years ago, but I had a commitment issue.”
We hope Latifah gets help for this issue and hopefully encourage other young women to speak up and get help.
