Actor Hosea Chanchez Breaks His Silence On Being Molested At 14 Years Old
Actor Hosea Chanchez is speaking out about being molested at the age of 14.
According to Fox News, the Game alum went on his Instagram and revealed he was molested by his friend's father and admitted it was hard for him to talk about it.
Chanchez went on to say his childhood friend's father preyed on him since being in a single parent home with his mother and he would ask questions about his sexuality, but didn't realize it was a way to test his comfort level.
Hosea said the man threatened to ruin his life if he decided to speak out because he was in a position of power.
I am very happy that Chanchez decided to speak out because he wanted to help others who may be struggling.
I’m choosing to come forward now in hopes that my TRUTH helps to free someone else from guilt and shame at the hands of a predator, rapist, pedophile. I ask God to help me become the best me I can be and in the process allow my life to inspire, uplift and heal someone’s else’s pain and trauma.
I recently had a conversation with Dr. Sharon Thompson in regards to mental health especially when it comes to black men and how important it is to talk to someone and receive treatment from life circumstances.
