“I was 10-years-old looking like I was 28, being a very sensual dancer. I was a tormented little kid who had to put on this sexy facade because that was my job and my life. But my heart was the same, and I was this innocent little girl. I wanted so much love.”

Hough said the abuse became worse when she started hitting puberty. “When I started becoming a woman and stopped being a little girl. This is the farthest I’ve ever gotten into [discussing] my London situation. I was told if I ever went back to the United States, three things were going to happen. One: I was going to amount to nothing. Two: I was going to work at Whataburger. And three: I was going to end up a slut. So, it was like, I can’t go back. I have to be this person.”

When asked about her abuser, Hough declined to disclose…only stating:

“I’m a very forgiving person, and I don’t want to hurt anybody, what’s past is past.”
