Celebrities Who Survived Child Abuse
They survived their horrors and want to stop others from being attacked.
Hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions, of children are abused in the United States every year, and it can range from neglect to physical abuse to sexual abuse. While the world is changing and abuse is being seen as more of a preventable situation due to intervention, many children will experience some terrifying abuse at the hands of adults in their lifetimes. Child abuse was too often seen as something to be swept under the rug in past decades.
Famous people were perhaps more driven to succeed in their chosen professions because of the abuse that they suffered that made them feel horrible on the inside, and these celebrities stopped holding in the pain they felt long ago.
