Jaime King is breaking her silence.
In a candid and emotional post, Jaime made a vague reference to possible sexual abuse as a pre-teen. At the end of her raw note, the actress stated that “it started at 12”.
Obviously touched by Lady GaGa‘s moving performance of Til’ It Happens To You at the Oscars 2016 Sunday night, the actress felt compelled to pen an emotional note about her own experiences with sexual assault. King also thanked a ton of people for supporting her through her trauma, including Taylor Swift and husband Kyle Newman.
Take a look at J.K.’s raw post (below):

It’s a night of celebration, of change, of not being ashamed of your race, creed color, situation, circumstances and environment, or past. Now I am free, somewhat. Thank you for the switch that went off inside finally when I realized my silence said I cannot help nor change and that is not who I am. I love you all very much for creating a safe space. The time is now. I was about 14 here, it started at 12. Peace Be Still ├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬ÅA photo posted by Jaime King (@jaime_king) on Feb 29, 2016 at 12:12am PST
