"I was 19, and I worked in the music business, and a producer told me, 'take your shirt off.' I said no. Then I left, and they said I was going to burn all my music. And they didn't stop asking me, and I just shut up. Then I don't remember anything else," he said.
The rape by a music producer had made Gaga pregnant. However, according to him, the man who raped him did not want to take responsibility and instead dumped him. As a result, the Bad Romance singer was traumatized to the point of affecting her mental health.
