Actress and former porn star Traci Lords has revealed that she was raped as a child while growing up in Steubenville, Ohio.

The 44-year-old, who became a teen porn star, was only ten years old at the time of the sexual assault. Lords spoke out about her painful past to Piers Morgan on Thursday.

Lords was discussing the current Ohio rape case which thrust her hometown into the spotlight.

Traci Lords told Piers, “I was born in Steubenville, Ohio and I was raped in there. So was my mother. I think there’s a sickness in that city.”

Traci went onto admit that she was initially reluctant to respond to fans’ tweets asking her to comment on the rape case in which two high school players stand accused of sexually assaulting an intoxicated 16-year-old girl.

She explained, “People come after you and the last thing I wanted was the, “Look at this slut talking about that slut thing. But I just couldn’t stay silent.”

The actress admitted watching the trial of Trent Mays, 16, and 17-year-old Ma’lik Richmond had brought back the painful experiences of her childhood. Her attacker was 14 years old.

She has written a song entitled Stupidville to channel the anger she felt at seeing images of the 16-year-old girl being “carried like a pig”.

Traci Lords was born Nora Louise Kuzma on May 7, 1968 in Steubenville, Ohio. At the age of ten, she was raped by a teenage boy in the town.

Traci Lords left her violent, alcoholic father with her mother and three sisters when she was 12 years old and moved to Lawndale, California.

She was molested by her mother’s cocaine-dealing new boyfriend Roger. At the age of 15, she dropped out of high school to move in with him after he split up with her mother.

Roger arranged Traci’s first nude photo shoot, posing as her stepfather. She began working as a porn actress using a fake driver’s license that said she was 20 years old.

Lords became an adult movie star at age 16. By the time she turned 18, she’d already starred in over 100 porn movies..

Shortly after her 18th birthday in 1986, Lords was busted by the FBI for being an underage porn star.

The investigation cost the adult film industry millions of dollars as they had to destroy thousands of her tape and magazines or face charges of trafficking in child pornography.

The FBI say that Lords was an underage victim of an exploitative porn industry which forced her to do drugs. However some adult film stars including Ron Jeremy claim that Lords was aware of what she was doing and they never witnessed her using drugs.

Lords turned away from the porn industry and began working as an actress on television and in the movies.

She starred opposite Johnny Depp in the John Waters film “Cry Baby”. Lords later appeared in several mainstream films including “Zack and Miri Make a Porno”.
