Ewan McGregor daughter’s rape hell

 

Ewan McGregor's daughter Clara has revealed she was raped, beaten and suffered pill addiction and depression in a heart-rending open letter.

The brave model and actress, 23, who also had an abortion, lifted the lid on her "year of hell" in the hope "it can help others feel less alone", The Sunreports.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote: "I've been so ashamed of some of my mental health issues that I haven't even wanted to tell friends.

"This past year I dealt with addiction, I got sober, and I dealt with a great deal of depression and anxiety, I had an abusive relationship, I had an abortion, the list goes on."

Clara, who has three younger sisters, added: "I've suffered from crippling anxiety since I was 4. (It) has stopped me living the life I wanted to lead. It was a cage I still struggle to get out of.

 

 

"I've struggled with substance abuse, it led me to Xanax and I'm proud to say I've been clean and sober off of pills for 110 days."

Her post - a year after she appeared with her dad in the Christopher Robin film - also revealed she had been attacked by an unnamed ex.
