KeKe Palmer on her journey to fame: “I have  experienced sexual abuse”

Though from the outside looking in it seems KeKe Palmer has lead an enchanted life as an up and comer in Hollywood’s fast lane, the actress recently spilled on the many trials– including abuse– she endured on her road to super stardom. 

In promotion of her memoir, “I Don’t Belong To You,” the 23-year-old screen gem took to Facebook Live where she openly confessed to growing up in a disenfranchised community, living on Section 8 support, and being a victim of sexual abuse throughout her childhood. 

“I come from a poor community. My Daddy drew his pension. My daddy drew his pension in order for me to be able to pursue my dreams,” Keke said as she shared her testimony with the masses.

“God is real. And that’s why I’m so thankful for my parents because one of the things they taught me is faith. Faith! I have so much faith in myself and the Lord for what my parents did for me. I’m telling y’all everything really was God-sent for us. We drove four days and three nights to California and the first couple of weeks I got a Kmart commercial, to the point that people really thought I was born into the industry. They felt like it was handed to me and that was the gag that me and my family all have.”
The Scream Queens vixen went on to explain that she felt compelled to spill guts on her story in effort to encourage, inspire, and motivate others who’ve shared some of her experiences. 

“At the end of the day, it wasn’t handed to me. At the end of the day the cards were against me. At the end of the day, I did grow up on Section 8. At the end of the day I have experienced sexual abuse. I have experienced turmoil in my family, the point is not to hide those things because when we hide those things we prevent other people from envisioning that life for themselves.”
