During domestic abuse awareness month, Little Miss Sunshine actress Abigail Breslin spoke out about a tragic prior violent relationship on Saturday. She described her two-year experience surviving domestic violence on Instagram. Breslin had previously shared on Instagram how she suffered from PTSD as a consequence of sexual assault by an ex-boyfriend. She did not share the identity of the abusive boyfriend in both instances.
Breslin wrote in the post:
“For two years, I was in an abusive relationship. Everything began off brilliantly, and I was completely smitten. Unfortunately, my attacker took advantage of my naivety and naiveté, and the relationship turned violent as a result.”
She detailed the horrible abuse she experienced and how she had to hide the reality throughout the relationship.
Breslin says, “I was beaten on a daily basis, confined into rooms, and made to pretend everything was alright and normal while suffering with serious injuries….. injuries most people didn’t even notice.” She was subjected to both verbal and physical abuse by her abuser.
“In addition to the physical injuries, there were many put-downs, humiliation, and severe verbal abuse.”
She went on to express her thanks to everyone who helped her throughout this difficult period.
“These two years were the most lonely I’ve ever felt.” I am eternally grateful for the aid of my family and friends, who were vital and invaluable in assisting me in leaving this dreadful circumstance.”
