LL Cool J Tells Oprah of Abuse as a Child (Watch)

*In a shocking interview, rapper and Hip Hop mogul LL Cool J revealed to Oprah about his dark, abusive past.

He told the queen of media on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” that he was beat as a child, but not the kind most folk go through. The kind when someone should get locked up.

LL originally told the story in his 1988 autobiography “I Make My Own Rules” that he was attacked and tortured by his mother’s male friend.

From being beat with vacuum cleaner pipes and being told to strip down to take lashings, the rapper recounts the traumatic experiences.

“Oprah’s Next Chapter” with the LL Cool J interview airs Sunday night at 9pm E/P.
