Since the news of R. Kelly allegedly being molested by his older sister broke yesterday, celebrities like Columbus Short are opening up about their own sexual abuse. In a video on Instagram, the actor revealed he too was a victim of molestation as a young child.
“I found out R. Kelly was molested by his sister and it’s sad. It doesn’t justify anything he’s done as an adult man, but I was molested by my babysitter,” he said. Watch the entire video below.
Short has had his own problems over the last few years, from bar fights, domestic violence charges, drug use and more. The 36-year-old is seemingly on the right path, repairing his marriage with his wife Aida Short, starring in TV One’s Definitely Divorcing, True To The Game and most recently Je’Caryous Johnson’s stage adaptation of Two Can Play That Game.
