American Idol's Kara DioGuardi Date-Raped By Well-Known ProducerS

Kara DioGuardi is releasing a memoir on April 26, and inside she reveals that she was molested as a child and date-raped by a well-known music producer. When she was 11 years old, DioGuardi says a family friend's son in his late teens repeatedly abused her: "On one particular day, he took me into the back shed of his house and put his hands all over my breasts and vagina," she writes. "I remember freezing and not knowing what to do." Much later in life, as her career as a songwriter was taking off, DioGuardi claims that after she had dinner with a producer, "within a few hours, he was on top of me, pumping, sweating, and speaking to me in Spanish, not a word of which I could understand." And! A few years later, DioGuardi found herself sexually harassed by a "hugely successful artist." DioGuardi continued to work with the artist because, she writes, "I wasn't gonna let this bastard deter me from doing the job." [E!]
