Oprah Winfrey and Lady Gaga bring each other to tears as singer reveals she developed PTSD after being raped
She kicked off her 2020 Vision: Your Life In Focus Tour on Saturday in Florida.
And gracing Oprah’s, 65, national tour as the first guest, was none other than ‘the incomparable’ Lady Gaga.
The 33-year-old took to the stage where she candidly opened up to the 15,000 person crowd about her PTSD after being raped, bringing the talk-show queen to tears.

‘What’s interesting about it is that I’ve found through neuropsych research and my relationship with my doctors that fibromyalgia can be treated through mental health therapy,’ she shared.
‘And mental health is a medical condition, it should be treated as a medical condition. It should not be ignored.’
The A Star Is Born actress, who rocked bright pink hair and a black power suit, went on to open up about being repeatedly raped when she was still a teen.
‘I was raped repeatedly when I was 19 years old, and I also developed PTSD as a result of being raped and also not processing that trauma,’ she shared.
‘I all of a sudden became a star and was traveling the world going from hotel room to garage to limo to stage, and I never dealt with it, and then all of a sudden I started to experience this incredible intense pain throughout my entire body that mimicked the illness I felt after I was raped.’

‘You were so amazing. You were so good. You were so vulnerable, you were so real, I couldn’t even believe you were doing that. I was like, “Am I hearing correctly?” Oh my you were so real,’ Oprah said through the tears.
