What happened to John Stamos?
John Stamos has disclosed that he was allegedly sexually abused as a child by a previous caregiver.
The 60-year-old Full House actor claims that the assault happened when he was around 10 or 11 years old and that he didn’t notify anyone at the time in his upcoming memoir If You Would Have Told Me.
“It seemed like you were acting dead to get them to quit. However, it wasn’t entirely hostile. In an interview with People magazine, Stamos said, “I don’t know, it was not good.
“I shouldn’t have had to deal with those feelings,” he continued.
Stamos, who rose to fame in the 1980s on the soap opera General Hospital before landing a leading role in the comedy Full House, revealed that he had previously thought about coming forward when drafting an acceptance speech for a prize presented in honor of his work as an advocate for abused children.
“I started to write it, and that’s when it came out,” he said, according to People. “And after that, I reasoned that tonight was not about me. The kids are the focus. I’m going to store it till the appropriate time.
