The Daily Beast reports:
During her appearance on David Letterman’s show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, Ellen DeGeneres shared that her stepfather sexually abused her as a teenager. DeGeneres said her mother married “a very bad man,” who would grope her and once tried to break into her room, leading her to climb out a window in order to escape.
According to DeGeneres, her stepfather used her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis as an excuse to grope her. “He told me that he’d felt a lump in her breast and needed to feel my breasts,” she said on Letterman’s show, which is set to premiere Friday on Netflix.
