Paloma Faith Addresses Sexual Assault

Addressing years past, Paloma Faith has discussed details of a horrifying sexual assault she escaped during the early days of her career.

Now 42-years-old, the mother of two has recalled being groped while cornered by an unknown man and how being quick on her feet helped her escape.

In her published autobiography, MILF: Motherhood, Identity, Love and F*ckery, Faith writes:

“One day, in my early twenties, I was coming back late at night from a cabaret job I was doing.” “I went into a phone box, very retro, to call my mother, who was always worrying about my safety, and a man kicked the door of the phone box in so I would be trapped and tried to get in it with me.” “He was gripping my chest and groin and telling me to shhh but luckily I had my wits about me, as well as a small wheelie suitcase. I picked it up and smashed him round the head with it and ran to a local 24/7 shop where I knew the staff, who helped me.”

Paloma went on to share details of other incidents where she was the victim of date rape drugs, recalling having her drink spiked twice, adding “On one occasion because the people I was with were looking out for me and the other?.?.?.?I still to this day am not sure what happened. I woke up naked in someone’s bed though. I don’t know what they did with my body. Dark times.”
