Former singer, Jessica Simpson revealed in a new memoir “Open Book” that she was sexually assaulted at the age of six. The successful businesswoman revealed her alcohol and drug addiction;
“I was killing myself with all the drinking and pills,” she said.
Simpson quit drinking alcohol in November 2017 when she realised it was “making things worse”.
“Giving up the alcohol was easy,” she went on. “I was mad at that bottle. At how it allowed me to stay complacent and numb.”
She admitted that it happened when she had a sleep over with her parents friends’ daughter;
“It would start with tickling my back and then go into things that were extremely uncomfortable,” she wrote.
“I wanted to tell my parents. I was the victim but somehow I felt in the wrong.”
She told her parents six years after ;”I told you something was happening.”
“Dad kept his eye on the road and said nothing,” wrote Simpson.
“We never stayed at my parents’ friends’ house again but we also didn’t talk about what I had said”.
This is sad and it happens a lot here too.
