Christina Aguilera Opens Up About Her Abuse As A Child

wenn2201217 Christina Aguilera Opens Up About Her Abuse As A Child

Christina Aguilera reveals she overcame her childhood pain from abuse she suffered at the hands of her father by putting her emotions into her music. Read more of what Christina Aguilera has to say below.

Christina finally opened up about her father, Fausto, in a television documentary. She tells of how the U.S. Army sergeant made her life hell.

She tells E!, “I witnessed a lot of unpleasant things – a lot of pushing and shoving and fighting and quarrelling. Growing up I did not feel safe. Feeling powerless is the worst feeling in the world. I turned to singing as an outlet. The pain at home is where my love for music came from.”

Christina Aguilera’s mother, Shelly, discusses the abuse in the documentary, recalling one incident when she found Christina, 4, with blood dripping from her chin.  Christina’s mother says, “I scooped her up and said, ‘Oh my God. What’s wrong?’ She told me, ‘Daddy wanted to take a nap and I made too much noise.’”

Aguilera’s mother eventually left abusive husband, taking her daughters to live with their grandmother.

Christina’s father has since begged forgiveness but she has no desire to have a relationship with him, adding, “I let him back into my life briefly but I soon realized that he is not necessary in my life.”

  1. Artie Louise says:

    I believe people of notoriety speaking up and owning their victimization as a helpless child is such an important step in removing the stigma that a child abuse survivor feels. Child abuse survivors feel isolated within a society which is in total denial of the harm physical violence does to one’s psyche. Because discipline through physical violence is such an accepted practice in the United States, we who dare speak out about the damage done at the hands of our parents risks the public ire of all those approving of it, which unfortunately is the majority of society. Whether the survivor has the strength to withstand such disapproval depends on where he or she is on the path to healing their wounds.

    If we speak out and say the harm that it did to us, we are denied our reality and told by people who are totally unaware of their own damage, “it didn’t hurt me none.” Well, as a child abuse survivor, I’m here to say it did hurt me. It effected every single area of my adult life. The damage it has done has taken almost a lifetime to repair. I can still remember the Bible verses being quoted in justification.

    The United States needs a shift in our view, such as the mother in Astrid Lindgren’s short story “Never Violence.”
