Welsh Singer

The Welsh Singer Aimee Anne Duffy has first time revealed the details of her terrifying experience, about the four week ordeal.

The Welsh Singer, according to BBC’s report, opened up about a four-week ordeal during which she was drugged in her own home, raped and taken to a foreign country.

It’s the first time she’s given details of the terrifying experience, which led to her retreating from the spotlight.

“Rape is like living murder, you are alive, but dead,” she wrote.

“All I can say is it took an extremely long time, sometimes feeling never ending, to reclaim the shattered pieces of me.”

She posted the first details on Instagram.

She wrote: “It was my birthday, I was drugged at a restaurant, I was drugged then for four weeks and travelled to a foreign country.

“I can’t remember getting on the plane and came round in the back of a travelling vehicle. I was put into a hotel room and the perpetrator returned and raped me.”

The star said she then “could have been disposed of by him”. She contemplated running away but was afraid he would call the police.

“I do not know how I had the strength to endure those days, I did feel the presence of something that helped me stay alive.”

Afterwards, the the Welsh Singer was at high risk of suicide, she revealed.

She concludes: “I can now leave this decade behind. Where the past belongs. Hopefully no more ‘what happened to Duffy questions’, now you know … and I am free.”
