Lady Gaga has revealed that she was raped by a producer when she was 19 and became pregnant.
"I was 19 years old, and I was working in the business, and a producer said to me, 'Take your clothes off,'" she said in an interview. "And I said no. And I left, and they told me they were going to burn all of my music. And they didn't stop. They didn't stop asking me, and I just froze and – I don't even remember."
Gaga added that "the person who raped me dropped me off pregnant on a corner."
She would not name the producer's name, but she said, "I do not ever want to face that person again."."
She said the incident led to a psychotic break.
"First I felt full-on pain, then I felt numb, and then I was sick for weeks after. I realized that it was the same pain that I felt when the person who raped me dropped me off pregnant on a corner [by] my parent's house, because I was vomiting and sick. Because I had been abused, and I was locked away in a studio for months."
