Alec Baldwin's daughter Ireland has made a shocking confession that she was raped as a teenager.
"Before I share what I am going to share, I don't feel that it is anybody's responsibility to talk about this if they don't feel comfortable. I've seen countless TikToks in the last 24 hours where women are telling other women that it is their responsibility to share their abortion story and I find that to be invasive and wrong and just simply not true."
"I am only now sharing my story because I want other women to feel supported and loved, whether they want to share their own or not," she noted.
"I was raped when I was a teenager and I was completely unconscious when it happened and it changed the course of the rest of my life."
"I kept that secret inside of me for years, and because I did, it caused a lot of hurt and a lot of pain to me and to people I love," she said.
The model said she "spiraled" because she "harbored so much pain and so much guilt for so long," and as a result, "lost control of [her] life."
The reason for the recognition was the news about the abolition of the right to abortion among women in the United States.
