Padma Lakshmi molested by a close relative as a child

Actress-model Padma Lakshmi has made a shocking revelation in her book 'Love, Loss And What We Ate’. She recounted how she was physically abused as a child. The actress who had a tumultuous marriage with Salman Rushdie put all her life episodes in a book, titled 'Love, Loss And What We Ate'.

In the book, she wrote about how she was molested by a relative of her stepfather then. The entire story will shock you.

Here’s how she narrated the tribulation:

“One night, I woke up to his hand in my underpants. He took my hand and placed it inside his briefs. I don’t know how many times it happened before, since I suspect I slept through some incidents. Once you take a girl’s innocence, you can never get it back. What I remember more is telling my mother what happened and her believing me and then she and I telling someone else that it happened and that person not believing me. And then the next week, I was sent to India. In retrospect however, he should have been the one to go. Years later, in tears, my mother would acknowledge this grave mistake,” DNA quoted excerpts from the book in question.

Lakshmi in her autobiography – 'Love, Loss And What We Ate' wrote how Salman Rushdie demanded frequent sex and how she was sexually exploited by him.
