Entertainment Desk May 07, 2020

Former WWE diva Nikki Bella in her new memoir co-written with twin sister Brie Bella opened up about a painful chapter of her past. In the book titled Incomparable, the Total Bellas shared the graphic details of how she fell victim to multiple sexual assaults in the past, reported People.

According to the book, at the age of 15 Nikki was raped by a fellow high school student whom she " thought was a friend". At the age of 16 Nikki had to endure a similar trauma when she was drugged and subsequently raped by a college-age man.

"There is the horrible offense in the moment, and then the shame and blame that follow and feel almost worse than the original pain," she wrote in the book. "When something like this happens to you, you understand the blame-the-victim mentality, how easy it is to feel shame rather than anger, how easy it is to feel like you could have stopped it yourself."
