Reneé Rapp Drugged + Assaulted

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Reneé Rapp confirmed that her song ‘Snow Angel’ was inspired by an incident where she was “drugged” and sexually assaulted in a Los Angeles hotel after being ditched by a friend.

The now 24-year-old singer/actress stated “I still feel like I’m sorting through those feelings.” “I do understand that it was an incredibly traumatic experience that I don’t remember at all. And it feels weird to talk about because I don’t remember it.”

Rapp went on to say that she has since ended her friendship with the person who abandoned her, adding “I just recently started to be like, ‘Wait, the people that let this happen to me suck.’ I recently was like, ‘I actually don’t want to follow this person on Instagram anymore because they left me at a club to get drugged.’ God knows what happened to me.”

Reneé explained that the incident took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel two years ago.

“I woke up on a bathroom stall, face up in The Beverly Hilton with blood on my pants.” “And had been left alone at that point for like seven hours.”

The singer/actress revealed that the experience had inspired her Saturday Night Live performance of Snow Angel in January.

“I was like, ‘OK, well, when we do SNL, if I’m doing this (song), I am doing this.” “I will be on a red floor and I need to start laying down because that’s how I woke up. And there should be red underneath me and I should be in all white.”

Reneé admitted that she “always knew” she was spending time with the wrong crowd but made “excuses for it”. “I knew, but I didn’t know to the extent, and I made a lot of excuses for it, but all my friends knew.” “(They) were like, ‘What the f**k is going on? You realise you’ve been out every single night and it’s a Tuesday. That’s wild.'”
