Lady Gaga divulged horrific details about a rape by a predator producer at 19 that left her pregnant and led her to suffer a “total psychotic break” years later.
The Manhattan-born pop superstar revealed the hell she suffered as a young artist in the first episode of “The Me You Can’t See,” Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry’s new Apple TV+ series that debuted Friday.
During the emotional interview, the 35-year-old Oscar and Grammy-winning artist recalled when a male music producer, whom she did not name, told her to take her clothes off.
“I said no. And I left, and they told me they were going to burn all my music. And they didn’t stop. They didn’t stop asking me, and then I just froze and I just — I don’t even remember,” she said, crying.
The “Poker Face” singer, who first talked about her traumatic experience in 2014, didn’t name her attacker, saying she never wants to confront the creep.
“I understand this #MeToo movement, I understand that some people feel really comfortable with this, and I do not,” she continued. “I do not ever want to face that person again.”
Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, said that her trauma would manifest years later. She was admitted to a hospital for pain and numbness, and ended up seeing a psychiatrist.
She couldn’t feel her own body, Gaga said. Then she felt “full-on pain,” and was sick for weeks.
“I realized that it was the same pain that I felt when the person who raped me dropped me off pregnant on a corner, at my parents’ house, because I was vomiting and sick. Because I had been being abused, and I was locked away in a studio for months,” she said.
