During a discussion on CBS’ “The Talk,” about Chrissy Metz and Tina Turner revealing they have forgiven their abusers, Sheryl Underwood emotionally shares how she can relate.
“You look at the situation as being completely dark,” says Underwood.
“I was sexually abused when I was very, very little and raped and emotionally abused. I didn’t have the best life with my mother, but I had no other choice but to forgive and those that took advantage of me sexually…because if I didn’t forgive them, that darkness would come inside of me and I didn’t want it. I could not survive with that hatred in my heart.”
Underwood adds how her faith and comedy helped her through the pain.
