6 Celebrities Who Were Molested

Posted by PZ on September 13th, 2011

To speak out after being molested takes guts, and some of these stars are clearly still battling with their demons. All of these stars have been molested as a child or young adult, but many of them have only been able to speak about their horrifying experiences only recently. Some of these famous stars, such as Teri Hatcher, were even forced into incestuous relationships by close members of their family. Below are their shocking real stories.

Gabriel Byrne

Irish actor Gabriel Byrne recently opened up about his molestation. When Gabriel was 11, and training to become a priest in Dublin at a seminary school, he was molested by priests. He commented: “I didn’t feel I suffered at the time. I just felt it was the way of the world, it took many years to come to terms with it and to forgive those incidents that I felt had deeply hurt me.”


Mo’Nique has said that she was molested by her brother when she was aged just 7-years-old. She claims he molested her 4 times in 4 years. Mo’Nique explained that she tried to talk about it with her parents who didn’t believe her: “Even when I confronted him and told my parents, he said I was lying, and nothing was really done,” she said. “My father was very upset, but it never got mentioned again. I’ll never forget my mother saying, ‘If it’s true, it will surface again,’ and I remember thinking, ‘Why would I lie? Why is there even an “if” in this?’ I was angry with them for so long because I felt as if they should have seen what was happening.”
