Double Jeopardy star Ashley Judd hit headlines this month (Apr11) by detailing sensational claims of sexual assault in her candid autobiography, All That is Bitter & Sweet. In the book, Judd alleges she was abused by an older man living near her family home and later taken advantage of by a relative's husband.
The actress' decision to open up about her troubled childhood has now prompted her mum to come clean about her own past, admitting she suffered at the hands of an older male relative from the age of three.
Speaking on U.S. TV show The View, Naomi said, "I rebuffed him, and it happened twice more. I knocked him away. I never said anything to anybody."

Country music veteran-turned-activist Naomi Judd has thrown her support behind Taylor Swift after the young Love Story singer was heavily criticised for her performance with Stevie Nicks at the Grammy Awards.
Swift's off-key duet with the Fleetwood MAC star has been put down to nerves and sound problems onstage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and Judd - the mother of actress Ashley and country singer Wynonna - has the four-time Grammy winner's back.
In a letter to the editor of The Tennessean, Judd, calls Swift a "dazzling performer" and attributes Swift's less-than-perfect Grammy performance to her just having a bad night.
She writes, "Having sung many times at the Grammys, I can tell you that the stress and anxiety of performing in front of the world's top artists in every genre of music is tortuous for even the most seasoned singer."

Former country music star Naomi Judd has a secret passion for forensic science.
The 62-year-old singer-turned-self-help guru has become hooked on pathology after befriending a leading expert in the field.
She reveals, "One of my best girlfriends is the world is a leading expert on serial killers, Dr. Helen Morrison, so I read forensic psychology."
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has secretly been battling hepatitis C, but he is finally ready to raise awareness of the dangerous disease.
Hepatitis C, a viral infection of the blood that can lead to liver disease, is often transmitted through dirty needles.
Recovering drug addict Tyler announced he is slowly getting better after a year of interferon treatments, which strengthen the immune system - and he is planning to speak publicly on Oprah Winfrey's chat show in order to warn people about the infection.
He tells the New York Daily News, "It is nonexistent in my bloodstream where it's like a complete cure. I've had hepatitis C for a long time, asymptomatic. I've been pretty quiet about this.
"The band took a break about three years ago. (My doctor) said now is the time, and it's 11 months of chemotherapy (interferon) so I went on that, and it about killed me.
"Hepatitis C is the one that, of all the people in this room, at least three have it and don't know it. It's the silent killer. I may go on Oprah and talk about this. I hope you don't mind me mentioning that."
Tyler joins fellow celebrity hepatitis sufferers Pamela Anderson, Naomi Judd and LARRY HAGMAN.
Ashley Judd underwent a 47-day program at a treatment centre in February (06) in order to deal with issues of her past including depression and isolation.
The 38-year-old endured a "chaotic" and "dysfunctional" childhood and slept to combat depression and exhibited a "compulsion to clean".
Judd is the daughter of Grammy-winning country sing-songwriter Naomi Judd and her sister is Wynonna Judd, also a Grammy winner.
She explains to American magazine Glamour, "I needed help. I was in so much pain."
The star describes herself as a "hyper-vigilant child" who attempted to behave perfectly in order to compensate for her lack of security.
She went to 13 schools in 12 years and shifted from living with her mother, her father Michael Ciminella and her grandparents.
Judd says, "Supposedly, my sister was the 'messed-up' one and I was the 'perfect' one."
It was during a visit with Wynonna while she was being treated for food addiction at the centre that counsellors reportedly noticed Ashley's emotional problems and approached her about seeking help.
She says, "They said, 'No one ever does an intervention on people like you. You look too good. You're too smart and together. But you (and Wynonna) come from the same family, so you come from the same wound.'
"No one had validated my pain before."
Ashley credits her stint at the centre for helping her four-year marriage to Scottish race car driver Dario Franchitti.
She adds, "I was unhappy, and now I'm happy. Now, even when I'm having a rough day, it's better than my best day before treatment."
Naomi shouted, "I'm Ashley Judd's mother and Ashley would not approve of this."
