The Canadian-born singer-songwriter and actress has written an autobiography in which she makes the revelations.
She said: “I’m writing a book that will tell my life story. It details some of the things I have experienced and the abuse I’ve suffered.
“I was the victim of statutory rape and this book will help me get rid of the feelings of shame.”
The abuse was also the reason for her angst-filled songs on international debut album, Jagged Little Pill. The record is the highest selling debut album worldwide in history.
She has previously revealed she suffered from anorexia and bulimia after being told at the beginning of her career she wouldn’t be successful if she was fat.
In an interview with the Daily Mirror, she once told how she’d had lesbian relationships after dating a 29-year-old man when she was just 14, and spoke of her experiences with drugs.
“My addictions were work and food,” she said. “I smoked pot once in a while, but I’m too much of a control freak to be a drug person.”
i don't know whether to believe it or not. alanis has said she was very sexually active in her teens, so it can be true. plus, her first manager was much older her and she has also said she was in relationship with him. idk i'm confused D:
ETA so it just confirms that her song "HANDS CLEAN" is about rape, what many ppl have thought
