Ellen DeGeneres Accuses her Stepfather Of Molesting Her in an Interview With David Letterman
This is the first time EVER that Ellen has spoken out about the details of the molestation, she’s made mention of her troubled childhood in interviews in the past.
I’m a big fan of David @Letterman. It was an honor to be on his @Netflix show, even though he didn’t introduce me. pic.twitter.com/nWv9Adc4OH

This time the television host was one of the guests who stopped by David Letterman’s own show, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction”, where she made the shocking confession. The star detailed how her stepdad used her mom’s cancer diagnosis to manipulate her.
The comedian admitted that her mother,Betty DeGeneres, had married “a very bad man,” and that the situation had left her irate. “I’m angry at myself because, you know, I didn’t — I was too weak to stand up to…I was 15 or 16,” Ellen admitted. “It’s a really horrible, horrible story and the only reason I’m actually going to go into detail about it is because I want other girls to not ever let someone do that,” she added, according to the publication. “We [women] just don’t feel like we’re worthy, or we’re scared to have a voice, and we’re scared to say no. That’s the only reason I think it’s important to talk about it because there’s so many young girls and it doesn’t matter how old you are,” she explained, in hopes her words will help others who have experienced a similar situation.
