Common Reveals He Was Molested

Common has revealed that he was molested as a child.

His story below…

His new memoir ‘Let Love Have the Last Word’ saw him reveal that a work opportunity triggered memories he had once suppressed.

He explained that they came back to him while on the set of the movie ‘The Tale’ which also starred Laura Dern.

One day, while talking through the script with Laura, old memories surprisingly flashed in my mind,” he writes in the book. I caught my breath and just kept looping the memories over and over, like rewinding an old VHS tape…I said ‘Laura, I think I was abused.’

He revealed that his abuser pretended to be a friend of his family as a way to secure access to him.

I was excited for a road trip I was about to take with my family. My mother; my godmother, Barbara; her son and my godbrother Skeet; and his relative, who I’ll call Brandon.

Common was forced to share a bed with him.

At some point I felt Brandon’s hand on me, I pushed him away. I don’t remember saying a whole lot besides ‘No, no, no’.He kept saying ‘It’s okay, It’s okay,’ as he pulled down my shorts and molested me. After he stopped he kept asking me to perform it on him. I kept repeating ‘No’ and pushing him away. I felt a deep and sudden shame for what happened.

He is now seeking therapy and hopes telling his story will inspire other abuse survivors to tell their stories and protect children and the vulnerable from the predators who seek to harm them.

I just pushed the whole thing out of my head. Maybe it’s a matter of survival—Even now, two years after that flash resurgence of memories, as I’m writing, I’m still working through all of this in myself and with my therapist.
