Marie Osmond Admits She Was Confused About Her Sexuality When She Was Young Because She Was Sexually Abused

The newest host of “The Talk”, Marie Osmond, opened up about the sexual abuse she experienced as a child and how it impacted her view on her sexuality.

Osmond brought up the subject in response to Miley Cyrus’ recent Instagram post in which the pop star shared, “You don’t have to be gay, there are good people with d–ks out there — you’ve just got to find them. You’ve got to find a d**k that’s not a d**k, you know.”

Osmond shared, “When I was about eight or nine, I actually thought I was gay… The reason is because I had been sexually abused to the point that men made me sick. I didn’t trust them, I didn’t like them.”

Marie Osmond, who achieved fame alongside one of her eight brothers Donny Osmond, said, “I was looking at women and I thought, Why am I looking at women? I must be gay. And then I realized — because I’m a thinker — why did God give me all these great brothers and why did He give me this amazing father?”

Osmond shared her final thoughts on her brothers and father stating that “…they changed my opinion of men, which made me feel that it was something I was going through. So, I’m not saying anything about anybody, I’m saying that with her [Miley Cyrus] statement, and with my life personally, that changed the way I looked at myself.”

“The Talk” airs weekdays at 2 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
