Jaime King alludes to sexual abuse with emotional post

Actress/model Jaime King has seemingly revealed her secret past as a sex abuse survivor.
The former Hart of Dixie actress, 36, took to Instagram following Lady Gaga’s moving performance at the Academy Awards on Sunday (28Feb16), when the singer performed an emotional rendition of her Oscar-nominated song Til It Happens To You, a track dedicated to victims of sexual abuse.
Towards the end of the set, the pop star was joined on stage by men and women who are survivors of sexual assault, and each of them had phrases of hope written on their arms, including “Survivor”.
Jaime posted a photo of her younger self online moments after Gaga’s gig, and shared what appeared to be a revealing confession as she thanked her famous friends for their undying support.
“SURVIVOR,” the 36-year-old wrote. “Thank you (husband) @kyle_newman for loving me whole | My children | @lenadunham for her relentless bravery that always leads my Spirit to stand up… @ladygaga | #DianeWarren for breaking me whole last night and tonight | TS (Taylor Swift) I love you for being there no matter what | Thank you to the only people I have told. Thank you to @unwomen & all organizations that have tirelessly worked to somehow comfort & make right.”
She continued, “Thank you to myself to not choosing to not make this a cover story though that was what was suggested to me but to express from my heart to you all personally which felt the most honest way for me to speak | Thank you to my Soul, body, mind, emotions, my inner child, my younger self, I love you. It’s a night of celebration, of change, of not being ashamed of your race, creed color, situation, circumstances and environment, or past.”
Jaime went on to declare she finally feels “free” after keeping the alleged ordeal under wraps for over 20 years.
“Now I am free, somewhat,” she concluded. “Thank you for the switch that went off inside finally when I realized my silence said I cannot help nor change and that is not who I am. I love you all very much for creating a safe space. The time is now. I was about 14 here, it started at 12. Peace Be Still.”
The actress also showed her gratitude for various doctors, medical experts and spiritual counselors who have helped her along the way.
