Lady Gaga opened up about her mental health in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. She revealed that she has experienced PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Lady Gaga stated that she was repeatedly abused at the age of 19.
She said: “I was raped repeatedly when I was 19 years old. I also developed PTSD as a result of being raped and also not processing that trauma. She said she did not have anyone to help her. I did not have a therapist, not a Psychiatrist.”
“I just of all a sudden became a star and was traveling the world, going from the hotel room to Garage to Limo to stage. I never dealt with it. I started to experience this incredible intense pain throughout my entire body that mimicked the illness I felt after I was raped.”
In 2019, the singer revealed that she is sorry for collaborating with R Kelly. He was arrested for assaulting young women.
