At Knife Threats: Madonna

In 2015, the Queen of Pop was interviewed by radio broadcaster Howard Stern and said she was raped shortly after moving to New York in the late 1970s.



"I went to a dance class. The door was locked and I needed some coins to use a pay phone. A very sociable guy passed by and offered to use the phone he had at home. I thought it was nice of him. I trusted everyone."

The foreign man dragged the singer to the roof of the building, where he brutally raped her.



When asked why she did not go to complain to the police, she explained that the procedure was too humiliating: "I was told that if I wanted to file a complaint, I would have to undergo a physical examination, testify in court and be asked intimate questions. I have already been desecrated, why would I want to go through it again?"

Raped by her cousin: Oprah Winfrey

The most powerful woman on American television revealed as early as 1986 that she had been the victim of sexual abuse by her cousin.

After devoting hundreds of programs and standing by victims of sexual assault, Oprah spoke openly last May about the horrific abuse she experienced.



"When I was an IMI girl, until I was 12, I was raped by my cousin. He was 19. I did not know what rape is, what the word means or what sex is. I had no idea how children are born and what happens to me. Girls are not safe In a world full of men. "

Imprisoned and Raped: Lady Gaga

The successful singer was a guest on the TV show "The Me You Can't See" by

Oprah Winfrey

and

Prince Harry

, and told in tears about a brutal rape she went through when she was 19.



"A producer I worked with asked me to undress. I refused and wanted to leave, but they threatened to burn my music. "They did not stop asking me to undress and I froze. I do not even remember what happened. The man who raped me got me pregnant, and threw me on a street corner."



This is not the first time the 35-year-old singer has talked about the trauma she experienced.

In 2015, she recounted the damage done to her: "I became a shell of myself. I did not tell anyone for seven years because I could not accept it. I could not help but blame myself, I thought it was my fault. It completely changed me, my body and my thoughts".

Burglary and rape: Fran Drescher

Veteran readers will surely remember the actress from her role in the series "Nanny."

Behind the smiling appearance and the waving voice hides a severe trauma, about which Darsher speaks freely.

In 1985 she stayed at home with her ex-husband Peter Jacobson and a close friend.



At one point two men broke into the apartment where the three were staying, tied up her husband and raped Drsher and her friend.

"It was hard. I felt like I was smashed to a million pieces. It was at least a year before I started to come back to myself. When that happens, you keep recreating it in your head and wondering if you could have acted differently. We all have terrible experiences, and we go into a loop of thoughts. But we We need to transcend ourselves, leave the past experiences and focus on the present. "

Raped at age five: Terry Hatcher

In 2018, the actress published an open letter addressed to

Donald Trump

, mocking the testimony of Dr. Christine Blazey Ford who was sexually assaulted in her youth. Hatcher was raped by her uncle when she was only five, and the former president's remarks made her very angry.



"Here's what I remember: he had an erection while sitting behind the wheel of a car.

He asked me if I wanted to touch it.

I nodded in denial, but he took my hand and forced me to touch it.

There were handkerchiefs in the car and I did not understand what they were for.

Then I realized.

I lay face down on the floor while he desecrated me.

He asked if I was having fun and I said no.

He said that one day I would enjoy it. "



Many years after he was raped, it turned out that the same uncle had raped a 14-year-old girl who ended her life as a result of the difficult experience.
