Alanis Morissette has disclosed that she was raped by several guys when she was 15 years old, but it took her years to realize she had been raped.
The 47-year-old Jagged Little Pill singer made the shocking claims in a documentary that premiered at the Toronto Film Festival on Tuesday.
According to the Washington Post, Morissette claimed numerous guys had sex with her when she was a 15-year-old Canadian pop star in the HBO film Jagged.
“It took years of therapy for me to even realize there was any kind of trauma on my behalf,” Morissette explained.
“I’d always say I was consenting, and then someone would remind me, ‘hey, you were 15, you weren’t consenting at 15.’
“Now I’m thinking, ‘Oh sure, they’re all paedophiles,'” she says. It’s all legalized rape.”
Morissette has not named any of the alleged abusers in the film, but she claims that in the past, many in the industry dismissed her claims.
