Singer Duffy said in her first public Instagram post on Tuesday that she left the spotlight almost 10 years ago because she had been kidnapped and raped.
Duffy, real name Aimee Anne Duffy, said opened up about the incident to a journalist who found her last summer and that it felt “amazing” to talk.
“The truth is, and please trust me I am OK and safe now, I was raped and drugged and held captive over some days,” Duffy said. “Of course I survived. The recovery took time.”
