Different Strokes Actor Todd Bridges Admits He Was Molested As A Child . . . By A MAN!!!

: MediaTakeOut.com received a very SOBERING report. Actor Todd Bridges, from the hit show Different Strokes" made a very painful revelation in his new book - that he was MOLESTED by a man.

Here is how Todd's revelation is being described,

The actor alleges his former male publicist performed oral sex on him when he was 12 years old, and details his horror when his father accused him of lying about the incident.

He writes, “Bringing all that up was tough in a way, but I resolved the issues. It’s kind of sad to know that a grown man would take advantage of a child. But what made it more tough was that your father took the guy’s side. That kind of broke me at 12 years old. I was really lost after that.”

Todd claims that after the molestation, his life spiraled out of control - into DRUGS and all kinds of other RECKLESS behavior.

Dude lived a real hard life . . .

Sorry to hear about this. We know that many young child stars were violated which lead most to drugs. When are we going to protect our kids? After it's too late? What a shame.

lmao its wrong to laugh but why am i not surprised. no seriously thats messed up but who actually cares enough to read his autobiography? i dont.and i dont like the fact he is blaming molestation for his horrible life. nicca u were a child star with money who could have made investments and made big moves. u CHOSE to do drugs and thats what ruined ur life. oprah was the definition of poor as hell and was molested but look at her.

He revealed all this on E! True Hollywood Story years ago. The whole entire cast had hard lives behind closed doors but Todd is really the only one who kept his head up. Kudos to him.

@Sober 1 You've got to be the most pathetic and sorriest excuse for a human being I've ever seen - or either your likeness to the actual perpetrator is so uncanny you feel like you have to rebutt - you know, defend the scum that took advantage of a child. You make me sick!

I know people that work with Todd. He is doing well for himself and the reason for this is because he has tackled those issues as to why the drug use began. It sounds like he has a real good therapist. He is also a Christian and has a lovely wife and child. He is also working again. I am very proud of him. Way to be Todd.

This is very sad, and disturbing that this happens to millions of children every year... Something needs to be done to protect children from monsters. What kind of person would do that to a child?


MzDeenie
flag as inappropriate/spamReply

SMDH..Some people on here are so immature & lack empathy for others. He was 12 years old a child ?? It's NEVER the victim's fault ? He told him father who should have had enough LOVE for his son to trust & believe him, and then contact the Police. I can definitely see how that caused him to use drugs to ease his pain. How can you blame him !? He was violated as a child, and to add insult to injury his own father didn't do his God-Given job as a protector.

Sober_1 You're stupid - plain and simple. HTF was he supposed to have gone to the cops when his own dad wouldn't believe him? Your comment was as dumb and ugly as that grill you call a face. Maybe YOU should get r@ped so YOU can see how it feels to hear someone make stupid comments BLAMING YOU for something you had no control over.


biotchraiseup

Tee_Cee what's worse, kids STILL HAVE NO RIGHTS! Major child sex/slave rings are ran by the very entity (law enforcement/gov) we think has our best interest at heart. Chances are, Todd's dad (like so many other child actor's parents) desperate for money and fame pimped him out to the elites. It's a nasty reality people want to ignore that's as rampant today as it was back then and it's up to us to school the clueless. Same with the Jackson's and Osmond's. Marie's son didn't just commit suicide for the heck of it. The Osmonds are victims of multi-generational abuse. Look it up.
