Common opens up about some ugly moments from his past in his new memoir. 

In Let Love Have the Last World, the rapper and actor reveals details about being molested as a child — an incident he’d blocked out for many years. When working on a movie called The Tale in 2017, and learning of the director’s childhood abuse, it made him remember the trauma he’d experienced. 

He says the assault happened during a family trip to Cleveland, at the hands of a relative of his godbrother Skeet, called Brandon

He says he’s since forgiven his abuser.
