Klaus Kinski's daughter Pola Kinski has written a new autobiography titled Out of the Mouths of Babes and claims her father violently raped over a period of fourteen years.
Initially she lived with her mother Gislinde Kuhlbeck, but moved out when her mother met another man.
She moved in with her father whom she says took advantage of her in every way possible.
Here's what she said:
"[I was] his little sex object, bedded on a silk cushion. I didn't want to, but he didn't care. He just took whatever he wanted. I can't hear it anymore: 'Your father! Great! A genius! I always liked him. The idolization has only gotten worse since his death."
Klaus Kinski appeared in five of film director Werner Herzog's movies, and is a celebrated cinematic icon - however he was known for his violent temper and erratic behavior.
We're sad to hear this. If the allegations are true then obviously that is SO wrong and our hearts go out to his daughter.
