Duffy Explains Absence From Music



source

Back in february singer Duffy posted on her Instagram that her absence from music was due to a traumatic rape and kidnapping. she now posted more details on her website:



She was drugged by the perpetrator in a resturant at her birthday

She woke up in another country where he raped her

They flew back to the UK where he kept her drugged for four weeks

She was too scared that he would harm her to contact the police

She only spoke with the police after someone tried to blackmail her with "outing" the rape

She doesn't think she would be alive today without the support of her psychologist

She spent the last 10 years basically alone; romantic partners only wanted the person they knew from the album covers and her family was too far away

She finally feels in a better place now

"Rape is like living murder, you are alive, but dead. All I can say is it took an extremely long time, sometimes feeling never ending, to reclaim the shattered pieces of me. "
