Rosie O’Donnell has gone public with allegations her father sexually abused her.

O’Donnell was 10 when her mother, Roseann, died from breast cancer.

Her father, Edward, died in 2015 from cancer.

O’Donnell shares the revelation in the forthcoming book “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View'” by Ramin Setoodeh, which is set to be published on April 2.

“Of course, it changes everyone,” she told Variety of the abuse. “Any child who is put in that position, especially by someone in the family, you feel completely powerless and stuck, because the person you would tell is the person doing it.”

O’Donnell talked to CNN in 2012 about her difficult relationship with her father. “He had his own issues and demons, he had a very tough childhood, he had an alcoholic, abusive father and never really got the help that I think every person needs when they have lived through that as a child,” she said at the time. “I think that he had a lot of problems to deal with.”
