Jessica Simpson shared that her book “Open Book” was designed as a way for her to relate what happened before she became famous, and to reveal that she was previous sexually abused as a child.

The 40-year-old singer was applauded by both the media and her fans for being so transparent about such a sensitive period of her life.

But not only did Jessica share how she has now moved past resentment and has taken steps towards forgiving the person who abused her.

In a recent interview with Katherine Schwarzenegger during her “Gift Of Forgiveness” podcast (based on Katherine’s book just released), Jessica revealed that she actually “confronted” her female abuser some time ago.

As it turns out though, Jessica had more sympathy than you might expect. The situation was extremely depressing and she pitied the woman who only abused her after experiencing the same things on a regular basis herself.

She actually shared her experience with a fair amount of detail which shocked many readers.

Her sympathy towards her unnamed female abuser made headlines and her family showed big support for how well she has been able to move past such trauma early on in life. It was almost a decade since she had spoken to her.

“I would say about eight years ago I confronted her. I went to her and I just said, ‘I know you know what was going on and I know that you were being abused,’ ’cause she was being abused by an older guy. "

'I Felt Bad For Her'

Jessica shared that the reason she was being abused was that her abuser was experiencing very similar things in her life. What she felt became a part of her life and she directed those feelings towards Jessica.

"And basically, and he (her abuser's male abuser) was always there at the house as well — he never touched me, but he would abuse her and then she would come to me and do the stuff to me — and so in so many ways I felt bad for her and I was allowing the abuse to happen.”

'I Couldn't Move Forward'

Simpson shared that talking with the person who hurt her so deeply truly gave her closure and cleared apprehensions in her life.

“I was just in that place where I was celibate, and I was, like, on this journey to explore myself, and I knew that I couldn’t move forward without letting her know that. I wasn’t just gonna leave it unsaid. I left it unsaid for far too long, but I knew that if I was honest with her, that it would clear my conscience.”

“And I even sent her the book and I told her that I hope it brings healing.”
