This is just devastating. Fitness trainer Shaun T. shared with the world that he was repeatedly molested by his stepfather as a child.
He would go on social media to open up about his troubling childhood during the latest TikTok trend. While lip-synching a verse from MIKA’s “Grace Kelly” song, the captions of his experience appeared on the screen.
“When I was 8yrs old, we used to have fun movie nights in our basement. We used to have to take turns running upstairs to the kitchen to get snacks during the commercials.” The story continued and said, “One night when it was my cousin’s turn to get the snacks, my stepfather asked me if I had ever frenched kissed anyone. I said no so he decided to teach me how to French kiss. That same night he tried to have intercourse with me.”
It went on to say, “He repeatedly molested me weekly until I was 12 years old. I ended up moving out of my childhood home away from my mother and brother when I was 14yrs old. I was afraid if I told anyone he’d kill me so I didn’t tell my mother until I was 21 and suffered years of PTSD until I went through years of therapy and learned how to love myself!”
The video concluded with Shaun T. saying, “If you ever wondered why I trademarked the slogan ‘DIG DEEPER’ this is it! I was once asked, ‘Don’t you think you’re sharing too much?’ My answer: ‘Don’t you think there are too many people not sharing enough?’ #throwbackthursday #digdeeper.”
