The 33-year-old star was the first guest of the Oprah Winfrey 2020 pop show. On the show, the singer made a shocking admission: at the age of 19, she was raped by a man much older than she, whom she had known since childhood.
“I was raped repeatedly at the age of 19. Because of this, I developed post-traumatic stress disorder. Unfortunately, the disease is not treatable, ”explained Lady Gaga.
The singer worked hard, but this did not relieve her of torment.
“I became a star very early, toured and performed. And I never had an idea what violence is. But after what happened to me, I often felt severe pain. Such as during abuse, ”said Lady Gaga
The star still suffers from terrible headaches and stated that the mental state of a person, like the physical one, is very important, and such problems cannot be ignored.
Oprah Winfrey, who was also sexually abused as a child, could not restrain her emotions. After the program, she went into her guest's room to support her.
“You were so amazing. I would never have thought that this could happen to you. I did not believe what I heard, ”said Oprah and hugged the singer.
Lady Gaga also talked about her relationship with Bradley Cooper during the filming of The Star Is Born.
“We did an excellent job to deceive everyone,” the artist emphasized. “We created this illusion, and people believed us.”
