Rosie O’Donnell has gone public with allegations her father sexually abused her.
The actress told Variety, “It started very young.”
“And then when my mother died, it sort of ended in a weird way, because then he was with these five children to take care of,”. she added that “On the whole, it’s NOT something she likes to talk about.”
O’Donnell was 10 when her mother, Roseann, died from breast cancer.
Her father, Edward, died in 2015 from cancer.
O’Donnell shares the revelation in the forthcoming book “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View'” which is set to be published on April 2.
She added that “Any child who is put in that position, especially by someone in the family, feels powerless and stuck because the person you would tell is the person doing it.”
