Common: Reveal Ugly Past about Abuse

Common shares some ugly moments from his past in his new memoir.

The rapper and actor tells all in Let Love Have the Last World about being molested as a child — an incident he’d blocked out for many year.

Premiere News and Prep says, when he was “working on a movie called The Tale in 2017, and learning of the director’s childhood abuse, it made him remember the trauma he’d experienced.”

He says, “I talked about being molested because, as a black man, many men have hidden that. Many people have hidden that. And you carry that weight with you. But at some point, you’ve got to let it go.”

It was a relative of his name godbrother Skeet, called Brandon that assaulted him during a family trip to Cleveland.

He confess that he has forgiven his abuser.
