Lady Gaga Reveals She Kept Her Rape Secret From Family Out Of ‘Shame And Fear’

Her rendition of a song about rape while flanked by survivors of sexual abuse was hailed as one of the most emotional points of this year’s Oscars ceremony.

Lady Gaga has now spoken in more detail about the sex attack she suffered, and revealed she kept the assault secret from her family.

And the Poker Face singer’s relatives only found out at Sunday’s Oscars she’d been raped at the age of 19.

Gaga, 29, said she was “too ashamed and afraid" to confide in loved ones including her grandmother and aunt.

But following her performance at the 88th Academy Awards of ’Til It Happens To You, from rape documentary The Hunting Ground, her relatives told her how “proud” they were of her for being brave enough to speak out about her ordeal.

Alongside a picture of her grandmother Ronnie and aunt Sheri, Gaga wrote in her latest post on Instagram: ‘My grandmother and my Aunt Sheri both called me the day after the Oscars because I never told them I was a survivor. I was too ashamed. Too afraid. And it took me a long time to even admit it to myself because I’m Catholic and I knew it was evil but I thought it was my fault.’
