Debbie Harry will expose how she was the victim of a robbery-turned-rape in her upcoming autobiography.

England's The Sun newspaper has acquired a harrowing excerpt from the famed Blondie singer's memoir Face It.

Harry, now 74, has written that she was a New York resident who had been living with her boyfriend and bandmate Chris Stein when a thief broke into their home in search of valuables. He then proceeded to undress her and rape her.

"He piled up the guitars and Chris's camera and then he untied my hands and told me to take off my pants," Harry recalled.

“He f***** me. And then he said, 'Go clean yourself',” she continued. “The stolen guitars hurt me more.”

Details on when the sexual assault occurred have not yet been disclosed but are likely in her autobiography, which will also touch on her experience with bisexuality and heroin use.

Harry has previously made headlines for the account of her alleged encounter with serial killer Ted Bundy, whom she claimed attempted to kidnap her in the 1970s.

The new wave "Heart of Glass" sex symbol has also described aging as "rough."

Harry, who was in a long relationship with Blondie guitarist Stein, has never married or had children.

When asked if she was sorry that she did not have kids, she said, “Sometimes, sometimes. I guess it never struck me as being part of survival and for many people it is, it’s a way of surviving.”

Fans will learn more when her memoir is released, which the rock star has said was a project she couldn't avoid doing.

Harry said parts of her life were funny and warm and others chilling “to the bone.” She discovered by writing the book that she had led “a very full life.”
