Lady Gaga Says Rape At 19 Led To A ‘Total Psychotic Break’

Lady Gaga says she became pregnant at the age of 19 after being assaulted by a music promoter early in her career, a tragedy that she credits for causing her to have a “complete psychotic break.”

On Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry’s Apple TV+ special “The Me You Can’t See,” which reflects on mental health, the singer-songwriter opened up about the ordeal.

Lady Gaga, whose hits include “Born This Way” and “Shallow,” said she had an “absolute psychotic break” after being raped years ago. “I wasn’t the same person for a couple of years,” she admitted.

Since being admitted to the hospital with chronic pain, Gaga was diagnosed with PTSD, she added.

The Grammy and Oscar winner said the promoter had her “locked up” in a studio and threatened to burn her music unless she removed her clothing. The singer declined to name the producer, stating that she “never wants to face that guy again.”

In a 2014 interview with Howard Stern, Gaga revealed that she had been raped by a producer 20 years her senior, claiming that it was the inspiration for her 2013 song “Swine.”
