Madonna has sure passed through hard times … but very few are aware that something terrible happened to her during her struggling times – something nobody wishes for any girl to pass through.
In a new essay she wrote for Harper’s Bazaar, the ‘Queen of Pop’ revealed that she was dragged up a roof and raped at knife point in the first year she moved to New York City from Michigan to make ends meet.
‘New York wasn’t everything I thought it would be. It did not welcome me with open arms. The first year, I was held up at gunpoint. Raped on the roof of a building I was dragged up to with a knife in my back,’ the 55-year old said.
She also reveals that her apartment was broken into three times and all her valuables stolen, and never expected that her adopting African children will cause her so much pain that will cause her to describe the experience as ‘a real low point in my life.’
‘I didn’t know that trying to adopt a child was going to land me in another sh*t storm. I was accused of kidnapping, child trafficking, using my celebrity muscle to jump ahead in the line, bribing government officials, witchcraft, you name it,’ she said. ‘I could get my head around people giving me a hard time for simulating masturbation onstage or publishing my Sex book, even kissing Britney Spears at an awards show, but trying to save a child’s life was not something I thought I would be punished for. . . In any case, I got through it. I survived.’
