Stodden, 23, revealed the heartbreaking news that she had been fighting off bullies her whole life, from her early days as a teenager straight through adulthood.

Stodden explained why she never spoke up. “Because of my insecurities and being a young girl, I was afraid what would happen if I would’ve fought back or have said no,” she told Radar.

Emulating Angelina Jolie, who said that she had a “bad experience” with Harvey Weinstein when she was younger, Stodden alluded to her own unfortunate experiences. “Without going into too much detail, this is another example of why my depressive state is difficult to manage,” she told Radar.

But Stodden said she decided to get help from her depression. “Through the right friendships, relationships, therapy, and channels for emotional expression (like music, writing and acting) I’ve been able to face my demons, acknowledge them and gain strength in myself,” she told Radar. “This means turning a new leaf, being honest with myself, not pretending anymore to smile when I really feel like crying, saying how I feel and what I feel… and standing up for myself even if it’s scary to do so.”
