Following Lady Gaga’s Oscar performance, Jaime King revealed that she is a survivor of sexual abuse on Instagram this week. Underneath a childhood photo, the 36-year-old actress shared that the abuse began when she was 12.
The caption reads, in part:
“Thank you to myself to not choosing to not make this a cover story though that was what was suggested to me, but to express from my heart to you all personally which felt the most honest way for me to speak.
Thank you for the switch that went off inside finally when I realized my silence said I cannot help nor change and that is not who I am. I love you all very much for creating a safe space. The time is now. I was about 14 here, it started at 12. Peace Be Still.”
Lady Gaga, a survivor of sexual abuse, shared this photo after King revealed her story:
Also this week, Jade Roper of The Bachelor franchise revealed her own history of sexual assault inspired by Gaga’s performance.
The marriage between Julia Roberts and Danny Moder has been rumored to be nearing its end for years now, but Radar Online is reporting that it’s closer than ever because—wait for it—Roberts just bought a new home in Malibu.
Radar believes it could be a “bachelorette pad if problems with Danny Moder escalate,” but because it’s “across the street” from her current Malibu home, I’m gonna go with...very expensive guest house? Imagine screaming at your husband, “WE’RE THROUGH! I’M GOING TO MY NEW BACHELORETTE PAD,” and just walking across the street.
