Stacey Dash is a famous actress and Fox News host. But in a recent interview, she shared a shockingly private detail about her past.
In addition to discussing drug abuse and being molested as a child, she revealed that she was raped at gunpoint by an ex in front of her newborn child.
This disturbing detail gives us new insight as to why she’s so determined and fearless in standing up for her beliefs. Wow:
The Clueless star and author of the upcoming memoir There Goes My Social Life also speaks in the interview about the importance of her two children, son Austin and daughter Lola.
She reveals however that she became pregnant with Austin at a particularly dark time in her life, and was moments away from aborting her son before making the decision to keep the child.
Then, shortly after she gave birth to her son, Dash said that she was raped at gunpoint by an ex who been stalking the actress – all while her son was asleep just a few feet away.
‘When I got pregnant, I was doing a lot of drugs and I didn’t want to live. I wanted to die. I was going to have an abortion. I was crying and I said to God, “Please tell me what to do,”‘ Dash said in an interview with People.
‘And God told me, “Keep your son.” I ripped the IV out of my arm and I said, “I’m keeping my son.”‘
It was shortly after Austin’s birth that Dash’s abusive ex tracked her down and raped her inside her home as her son lay asleep.
‘When we had been together, I was so starving for love that I held on. I got my a** beat for those moments of love,’ said Dash.
