7 Disney Channel Stars Who Were Abused by the People They Loved
We all know that violence is far too common in today’s society, but most people think that celebrities are ~untouchable~, and that somehow they are above the horrors of the real world. However, that’s super far from the truth. In the past, we’ve heard dozens of cases of celebs affected by domestic abuse, and our hearts go out to those who go unrecognized for their strength in these situations.
Although Disney stars can seem so pure, and sometimes even privileged, from an outside perspective, they are just as vulnerable as everyone else when it comes to abuse. Some of the network’s actors and actresses were a victim of abuse by a parent, others by a partner and some by someone they barely even knew. Read on to see which of your favorite DC celebs overcame a history of abuse.
In 2013, Demi's dad unfortunately passed away due to cancer. Two years later, she posted a video on her YouTube channel, in which she called him "abusive." The singer explained that "he was mean, but he wanted to be a good person," and that she felt conflicting emotions when he passed, because he wasn't always a good parent. But the story ends on a more slightly more positive note — she wrote a powerful song on her Confident album called "Father," and dedicated it to her dad.
