Celebrities who survived rape – These celebrities survived. Reports surfaced yesterday that Kesha is suing her producer Dr. Luke because he was “sexually, verbally, emotionally and physically abusive toward her.” She says that she “a lot of trepidation” about going forth with the lawsuit, but we’re glad she has found the courage to speak up.

Kesha isn’t the only celebrity sexual abuse survivor. French actor Gerard Depardieu recently made a bombshell admission: he was a prostitute at the tender age of 10. This Summer, actress Vanessa Williams spoke out about how she was abused and molested by another woman when she was just 10-years-old while on vacation. The perpetrator was 18-years-old and part of a clique of “cool girls.” Williams stated that she felt the incident caused her to become sexually awakened at too young of an age.
Such horrific sex abuse always has harrowing consequences and often requires years of necessary therapy, work and support to get over.
But thankfully, Kesha, Gerard Depardieu, Vanessa Williams and other celebs have made the difficult decision to speak out and share their experiences with the world. Their emotional stories of sexual abuse are most certainly helping others that are in or have been in the same situation.
These bravely vocal celebs also remind us that even when such wretched, heinous and unforgivable things happen to us, we can be strong, we can learn and we can survive. We can overcome. These victims, many of whom flash brilliant smiles in their photos and have gone on to live rich, productive and happy lives, are proof of that.
