Ellen DeGeneres Says She Was Sexually Assaulted As A Teen By Her Stepfather

May 28, 2019 | Posted by Jeremy Lambert

– Appearing on David Letterman’s Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, Ellen DeGeneres revealed that she was sexually assaulted as a teen by her stepfather. She claims her stepfather waited until her mom was out of town and told her he needed to feel her breasts because he’d found a lump in her mom’s breast and needed to check hers.

“It’s a really horrible, horrible story and the only reason I’m actually going to go into detail about it is because I want other girls to not ever let someone do that,” said Ellen (via TMZ) We [women] just don’t feel like we’re worthy, or we’re scared to have a voice, and we’re scared to say no … That’s the only reason I think it’s important to talk about it because there’s so many young girls and it doesn’t matter how old you are.”
