In her latest interview, Oprah Winfrey sits down with LL Cool J and talks about his abusive childhood while growing up.
We know that ifÂ you'reÂ going toÂ sitÂ down with Oprah Winfrey, you probablyÂ have something major to air out - and that's just what LL Cool JÂ did.Â In her latest interview, heÂ sits down to talk about being abusedÂ as a child.Â
LL Cool J is next to appear on the latest episode ofÂ Oprah's Next ChapterÂ toÂ discussÂ the beatings heÂ receivedÂ growing up. LL originally spoke of this situation in a 1988 autobiography titled 'I Make My Own Rules', inÂ which LL wrote about being attacked by his mother's male friend. He made sure to specifyÂ that this ordealÂ wasn't sexual. Now this is where Oprah and LL Cool J diveÂ furtherÂ in detail about theseÂ incidents.
In a teaser video below, you can see a red-eyed LL speak as he relivesÂ these stories.Â We can also see Oprah classify these incidents withÂ the word "torture."Â She's probablyÂ right though, because from this short clip (below), LL mentions being hit with vacuum pipes, having to strip down to get beat, and being thrown out in the snow. This is sure to be anÂ emotional and heartfelt episode. Hopefully the rest of the interview is aboutÂ how he overcame these horribleÂ incidents.
You can watch the full episode of Oprah's Next ChapterÂ with LL Cool JÂ this Sunday night at 9 P.M.
