Queen Latifah Essence Magazine

Latifah graces the cover of July 2009's issue of Essence Magazine.  She talks about marriage, commitment, and sadly, being abused as a child.

Of the traumatic experience, Latifah tells that she was violated by a teenage babysitter, saying:

“He violated me. I never told anybody. I just buried it as deeply as I could and kept people at an arms length. I never really let a person get too close to me.”

She also admits that, because of the abuse, she’s since struggled with commitment. “I could have been married years ago, but I had a commitment issue.”
