Sad.

Fashion photographer Nigel Barker courageously revealed on Tuesday that he was sexually assaulted as child.

The former ANTM judge opened up about his life-altering experience on his SiriusXM show Gentlemen's Code in order to raise awareness for Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

The 43-year-old personality recalled being just eight years old when he was approached by a man in his 40s while walking home from school. After helping the stranger with directions, the man claimed he couldn't read so Barker agreed to help.

He shared:

"I went up to the door and read the names on the buzzers … I went to push it, and he pushed me from behind, jolted me through the doors and I fell to my feet inside the door. The door closed and I'm not trapped between a stairwell inside and a shut door. I have a man who is much bigger than me, push me to the ground, grab me, pull my trousers and my pants down. I'm now exposed and I'm screaming and thrashing."

Thankfully, the now-father-of-two was able to escape:

Niall Horan's Rumored Fling Jessica Serfaty's Ex-Husband Says She Left Their 7-Year-Old Son For Fame In Hollywood

Jessica Serfaty and Niall Horan

Buckle up, Perezcious readers… this one's a doozy.

As we told you last month, Niall Horan was seen spending his weekend canoodling with former ANTM contestant Jessica Serfaty in between both Las Vegas and El Lay. Previously, the 25-year-old was also connected to Justin Bieber and Joe Jonas the before that!

And if you follow Jessica on social media, it seems as though she spends most of her time these days with Matt Cutshall and Fernando Contreras of Vine fame.

Still with us?

In a new interview with DailyMail, the model's ex-husband Ididia Serfaty has come out of the wood works to claim that Jessica "abandoned" their seven-year-old son Roman in order to pursue her Hollywood dreams.

Ididia claims that Jessica only makes time to see her son during the summer and some Christmases.

A little background: Jessica and Ididia met at church in Arkansas when she was 16 and he was 22 years old. According to him, Jessica got pregnant during the first time they had sex when she was 17. Everything reportedly changed when she was cast on America's Next Top Model, placing fourth in the competition. She eventually decided to head out to El Lay to pursue her career in the industry. The whole family uprooted to Hollywood, but it wasn't long before everything went downhill, and Ididia returned to Arkansas with little Roman.

Ididia claims to being a single dad for the past four-and-a-half years back in their hometown:

It turns out that the blonde beauty is actually learning sign language for her partner! Communication is key, after all! The lovely lady explained:

"It's been so interesting and such a great learning experience. We've had six days to get to know one another. I'm learning sign language now. I mean, it's great to learn another language. We're just vibing off each other more. It's going to be easier and easier day to day."
