Traci Lords: 'I was raped aged 10'
Former porn star Traci Lords has revealed she was raped at the age of 10.
The adult movie actress-turned-singer famously began appearing in pornographic movies when she was just 16, beneath the industry age limit of 18.
She starred in more than 100 saucy films before walking away from the industry and launching a pop career, but Lords has now delved into her troubled childhood to reveal a 14-year-old schoolboy sexually assaulted her when she was aged 10 and growing up in Ohio.
In an interview on U.S. TV show Piers Morgan Tonight, she said, "I was born in Steubenville, Ohio, and I was raped in there. So was my mother. I think there's a sickness in that city."
Lords spoke out to detail her hell as two teenagers from Steubenville went on trial in the U.S. for raping a vulnerable 16 year old.
She also revealed she has written a song about the controversial case, and titled it 'Stupidville' in a play on the city's name.
what do you think?
I may have led a sheltered life but I've never heard of her. :0(
Indeed the world seems to be full of famous non-achievers.
Neither have I. There are more "celebrities" than non! Still, she felt the need to share this story with us. Ho hum!
She was the woman who almost ended the billion dollar adult film industry in the USA by becoming a adult film star while she was under age.
It doesn't surprise me about Ohio - everybody that's got any family connection with Ohio is very suspect.
