In a recent interview Shania Twain revealed some of the extreme measures she took to discourage her late stepfather, Jerry Twain, from sexually abusing her. The guy terrorized the whole family, which included Shania’s mom Sharon, her two sisters, a brother, and Jerry’s orphaned nephew. Shania’s sexual abuse started when she was 10, and here’s what she resorted to. “I hid myself. I would flatten my boobs. I would wear bras that were too small for me, and I’d wear two, play it down until there was nothing girl about me. Make it easier to go unnoticed.” She did fight back against him. Quote, “I think a lot of that was anger, not courage. And it took a long time to manage that anger. You don’t want to be somebody that attacks me on the street because I will rip your head off.” Shania’s mom and stepdad died in a car accident in 1987, when she was 22. She stepped up to raise her three younger siblings in she was getting her singing career going. This subject is part of her “Not Just a Girl” documentary on Netflix.
