“While I was in London, I was abused, mentally, physically, everything,” she said.[Cosmo]

Everyone knows Julianne Hough as the cute blonde who dances like a swan on Dancing with the Stars. But there’s a much darker, hidden part to her past she reveals in the new issue of Cosmopolitan.

Claiming that she was the victim of abuse in her childhood, Hough says, “I was 10 years old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer. I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy façade because that was my job and my life.” She then adds that, “While I was in London, I was abused, mentally, physically, everything.” She won’t divulge exactly who did what to her, saying, “I’m a very forgiving person, and I don’t want to hurt anybody. What’s past is past.”

Like all celebrity confessionals, she says she is doing it for the greater good of those who don’t have the voice or the platform to speak out as does she. Stay tuned for more details that are sure to emerge in the follow-up to her big confessional.

That is a very bad situation.  I hope she can move past those dark days.  She should be at her sexual peak right now with that incredible tight body.
