  • Duffy reveals harrowing details of four week rape ordeal

In February the singer wrote on the post that she had stepped out of the spotlight in order to recover from the ordeal of being "raped and drugged and held captive over some days".

Returning with an incredibly powerful statement, Duffy revealed that she had vanished from the public eye following a traumatic drug rape incident. "I cannot recall getting on the airplane and came across in the rear of a travelling auto". "Rape stripped me of my human rights, to experience a life with autonomy from fear. But, still, I can't remember how I got back home", she wrote.

The star said she then "could have been disposed of by him".

Over the following days, she contemplated running away but did not proceed out of fear that her aggressor would call the police on her as a "missing person".

"When I sing, I feel like I bird", she said, adding that she hopes to "release a body of work someday, though I very much doubt I will ever be the person people once knew". I was stuck with him for another day.

She then explained that she flew back to the United Kingdom with her captor but that she "knew my life was in immediate danger" because he had made veiled threats to kill her.

This new post, shared to Instagram on Monday, April 6, confirmed that on her birthday she was drugged at a restaurant, then was continually drugged for another four weeks and taken to a foreign country.

'I do not know why I was not drugged overseas; it leads me to think I was given a class A drug and he could not travel with it'. "I thought it was not safe to report the police as if something goes wrong, I would have been dead by now as the kidnapper would have killed me at that instant".

She wrote: "I would not see someone, a physical soul, for sometimes weeks and weeks and weeks at a time, remaining alone", she added. "The id of the rapist must be exclusively dealt with by the police, and that's between me and them". My hair would get so knotted from not brushing it, as I grieved, I cut it all off. She explained that not talking was allowing her rape to become a companion, but she had to wait until she was truly ready to share her story.

Today, as she reflects on the past 10 years and looks ahead for the next, she "can now leave this decade behind". She even moved five times in the immediate three years after the assault, and she wrote: "I now feel safe in my present residence". "As dark as my story is, I do speak from my heart, for my life, and for the life of others, whom have suffered the same". "Hopefully no more 'what happened to Duffy questions, ' now you know ... and I am free".

In the aftermath of her kidnapping, Duffy - whose full name is Aimee Duffy - spent weeks without seeing anyone and couldn't strike up new relationships because she felt "alive, but dead".

Throughout the aftermath of her survival, she has revealed that it's hard to get back to her normal life, stating that she isolated herself from others and had a "high risk of suicide". The singer said in her own words that she remembered she was drugged for "four weeks". "I am no longer ashamed that something deeply hurt me". Without her I might not have made it. "To feel a peace that I have been, until now, only half feeling", she added.

"If you are reading this and are sad my encouragement to you is that ... to know pain, you must first know how to love".
