“You might want to ask if I was drinking that night. It doesn’t matter, but I was not drunk. Maybe you want to know whether I was dressed provocatively, and did the ambiguous hints. Doesn’t really matter, but I will say that I wore a black Maxi dress with long sleeves Betsey Johnson, which was exposed only to the shoulders. The guy I went to a few parties, and then we went to his house. As he talked, I fell asleep from exhaustion. Woke up to a sharp pain. It was me and said, “this Will hurt only for a while.” I told him not to do it, crying from fear and pain. He said: “I Thought that you would not be so much hurt if you sleep.” Then he drove me home. Now think about it and realize that by the time when it happened to me, I already had a traumatic experience. When I was seven years old, a relative of the stepfather was an abusive one… I complained to my mother and stepfather and they sent me to India to grandma and grandpa for a whole year. The lesson was: if you speak, you’ll be banished,” said Padma Lakshmi.
