Robin Thicke - Robin Thicke's Mum Opens Up About Sexual Assault

Robin Thicke's actress mum Gloria Loring has revealed she was sexually assaulted by her father as a toddler.

The Days of Our Lives star was just three years old when her alcoholic singer dad, Gerald Goff, molested her in the middle of the night, and Loring admits the memory still haunts her.

Recalling the incident to celebrity physician Dr. Drew Pinsky, she says, "I was three years old and I was awakened by the crushing weight of my father, who was drunk, on top of me. In re-experiencing this quite later in life, I felt my shoulder go numb, the side of my face go numb. I could smell the stale, sickening smell of old alcohol, you know when somebody drinks every day the alcohol just comes out of their pores... My hip went numb.

"He was in a state of arousal. It kind of fractured me in that moment. A part of me broke off and just tried to escape. You separate, parts of yourself just get shut off because you're no longer safe in the world."

And the TV star insists she was disgusted when it emerged earlier this year (12) that former American college football coach Jerry Sandusky had sexually assaulted several young boys during his career - because she knows what it's like to be a victim.

She continued, "I remember when I heard about all those young men with Sandusky, it just hurt my heart so much because I know how it is to go through your life and never feel safe in your own body. That is a line, that once it's crossed, is so hard to repair."
