Lady Gaga Got Pregnant After Being Raped at 19 by Music Producer Who Locked Her in a Studio
Lady Gaga revealed that she was abused and raped by a music producer when she was 19 years old. She also said in Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey's Apple TV+'s docuseries "The Me You Can't See" released Thursday that the man who raped her has impregnated her, Insider reported.
Lady Gaga, now 35, said that she went to the hospital to seek treatment for physical pain years after being raped. She noted that the recurring sensation of intense pain turning into numbness was familiar.
She noted that it was the same pain she felt when the alleged abusive producer dropped her off pregnant on a corner by her parents' house because she was vomiting and sick.
She added that the man also kept her "locked away" in a studio for months. Lady Gaga said the producer threatened to "burn" her music if she refused to take her clothes off at the time.
Lady Gaga on Rape and Abuse
Lady Gaga had no intentions of naming him publicly as she said she does not want to face the person again. The pop superstar noted that she experienced a total psychotic break after the abuse happened. It had led her to cancel numerous dates of a world tour, according to an Independent report.
Lady Gaga said it took her two and a half years to recover. However, she noted that it just takes one trigger for her to slip back into feelings of physical and emotional pain.
The "Poker Face" singer said that she has recently dealt with an impulse to self-harm. However, she stressed that it does not help at all.
The pop star added that after several years she learned how to pull herself out of it, and it has all started to change slowly, according to an E Online report.
Lady Gaga said she shared her story not to gather sympathy but to trigger empathy in others. She noted that part of her healing is being able to talk to people about it.
