Shotzi Blackheart Discusses Childhood Sexual Abuse

Shotzi Blackheart Discusses Childhood Sexual Abuse

On the most recent episode of Lilian Garcia's Chasing Glory podcast, WWE NXT star Shotzi Blackheart discussed sexual abuse she dealt with as a child:

“I had a pretty rough childhood, to be honest. I bounced around from like, my mom’s to my dad’s and to my friend’s house at a real young age. I dealt with a lot of sexual abuse for like, years. When I finally came out about it – I came out to my middle school counselor – [my uncle] went to jail. He’s still in jail now. But when I came out about it, some of my family didn’t believe me. But my dad really helped me through it, and so did musical theater. That’s why I liked performing so much – it was a big outlet for me. That was my therapy.”

“I know that so many girls deal with this; it’s like a crazy amount. I encourage girls to come to me and talk about it because I’m so open with it.”

"I had to do a lot of therapy afterward. I found like, a really awesome therapist, so that helped a lot. And like I said, performing was always just like therapy in itself. I think I always chased it, so I think wrestling is therapy for me too. I just need it."
