'We grew up in the hood, but we had some money. But I moved out when I was 14 to go live with my older sister, because my mom just had, well... issues.'
'After my dad died, my mom became really abusive – physically and verbally.
'Like she would hit me and my sisters with baseball bats, bang our heads up against walls, and she would always tell me I was ugly.'
'I remember once she threw out all the food in the fridge, just so we wouldn’t have anything to eat.
'It was like growing up a feral child, being raised by this person who was always yelling and screaming, hitting you and dragging you around and s***.'
And about her early sexuality:
'Growing up I was so curious about boys. I just loved them.
'I’d always get my recesses taken away for letting boys touch my butt in the lunch line I got in trouble for fooling around in school a lot.
'I just wanted to be touched, ya know? I just wanted to have sex.
'And my mom was always working so there was never anyone around to tell me no.'
