AceShowbiz - In her and sister Brie Bella's memoir "Incomparable", Nikki Bella opened up about being sexually assaulted when she was a teenager. The 36-year-old pregnant star shared she was raped twice after her parents divorced.
In the book, Nikki confessed that she lost her virginity "on the floor of a Hyatt hotel room on the 4th of July" when she was fifteen. She went on saying, " 'Lost my virginity' is very inaccurate, actually. My virginity was stolen from me, without my consent. I was raped, by a guy I thought was a friend, while I was passed out at a party."
"I'd had too many beers, and maybe some shots of hard alcohol, and I only woke up because my stomach hurt--I came to, and this guy was both on top of me and inside of me," the "Total Bellas" star alleged. "I pushed him off and ran out of the room--he followed me down the hall and asked me if this meant we were now boyfriend/ girlfriend."
She continued, "It is fed up--shocking in retrospect--that it never occurred to me to call the police. I didn't even tell my sister because by admitting that it had happened, it became true, it became fact."
The retired wrestler shared that the attacker "didn't apologize, he didn't worry about getting in trouble." She went on to say, "He thought that by taking advantage of me, he should now have official and full access to me. That this attack would actually make me his, in a celebrated social way. I get enraged even writing about this now. I know I was not the only girl in our high school who was violated like that and then expected to shrug it off the next day--this is what it was like."
"And man, do I pray things are different now, that girls realize that if something that horrendous and sickening happens to them, they can and should say and do something," Nikki continued. "I wish I had known that I could have taken away his future the way he had taken something so sacred away from me. Something I was waiting to share with someone I loved, at the time of my choice."
As for the second assault, Nikki said that it happened just "a few months later," when she and friend attended a modeling competition in California. Two guys, "they were college age, if not in their mid-twenties," invited them back to their hotel.
Nikki detailed that one of the guys followed Nikki into the bathroom before bashing her head against the sink. She then hit the guy and fled when she realized that she had "clearly been roofied" and raped. She went back to her hotel room, finding her friend who was also hysterical. "She had left me behind and run. But she had also been raped and was hysterical and in the shower. Her mom held me until I calmed down," she divulged.
Nikki and her friend, however, decided not to report the incident to police. "We all decided to pretend like it had never happened. Even my mom is learning about this for the first time in this book," Nikki wrote. "The #MeToo movement both enthralls me with its potential and reminds me why rape and sexual assault are a double slap for women."
