'They're all pedophiles' - Singer Alanis Morissette reveals she was raped by multiple men when she was just 15



Canadian singer and actress, Alanis Morissette has come forward as a victim of multiple statutory rapes.


The Jagged Little Pill singer made the disturbing claims in a documentary premiering on Monday at the Toronto Film Festival, according to the Washington Post, which viewed the film.


The HBO film, titled Jagged, includes an interview in which Morissette says that multiple men had sex with her when she was a 15-year-old Canadian pop star. She also said that it took her years to realize she was a sex attack victim


'It took me years in therapy to even admit there had been any kind of victimization on my part,' says Morissette, now 47, in the film.


'I would always say I was consenting, and then I'd be reminded like 'Hey, you were 15, you're not consenting at 15.' Now I'm like, 'Oh yeah, they're all pedophiles. It's all statutory rape.'


The age of consent in Canada is currently 16. When Morissette was a teenager, it was 14, but set a higher bar 'when there is a relationship of trust, authority or dependency,' according to the report.Latest Post
