Padma Lakshmi Reveals That She Was Raped 32 Years Ago

In a ‘NYT’ op-ed, author and model Padma Lakshmi divulged the reasons for staying silent for 32 years on a sexual assault. When 16, she dated a 23-year-old man whom she met in a Los Angeles suburb. Months later, on New Year’s Eve, he forced himself on her while she was asleep. Referring to accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh she said: “I understand why both women would keep this information to themselves for so many years, without involving the police. For years, I did the same thing.” She also detailed sexual abuse by a step father’s relative. The 7-year old was banished to India to live with grandparents, from which she learned that speaking out would result in casting out.
