Jessica Simpson - America's Elle magazine interviewed Simpson and asked if she had ever been physically abused, she answered, "I don't want to talk about it, but I have definitely experienced abuse in a way that I would tell people to take their heart and run."

Great post. This is very sad that this happened to them, but to me is more sad when a woman don't have money or education, or a job, and has children and don't know how to escape from that emotional prison.
