MediaTakeOut.com received a very SOBERING report. Actor Todd Bridges, from the hit show Different Strokes" made a very painful revelation in his new book - that he was MOLESTED by a man.
Here is how Todd's revelation is being described,
The actor alleges his former male publicist performed oral sex on him when he was 12 years old, and details his horror when his father accused him of lying about the incident.
He writes, “Bringing all that up was tough in a way, but I resolved the issues. It’s kind of sad to know that a grown man would take advantage of a child. But what made it more tough was that your father took the guy’s side. That kind of broke me at 12 years old. I was really lost after that.”
Todd claims that after the molestation, his life spiraled out of control - into DRUGS and all kinds of other RECKLESS behavior.
Lol You guys are super late,
he's been talked about this.
DAM I guess they gave him a different stroke lmao
HE'S GOING TO BE ON WENDY TODAY.
It was Fruity Azz Fred that molested him
PERFECT TIME TO SAY "WHAT CHU TALKIN BOUT WILLIS?"
poor Willis lol
Who the hell cares .. you were molested as a child .. then you shouldve went to the police ***.. wtf .. like are you serious .. keep your personal life to yourself ***
Wow...That is sad
Finally top 10.
That is cuhrazeeee!!!!!!!
AT 12 I WOULD HAVE PUNCHED HIS AZZ IN THE NUTS!!!!
SURE TELL US ANYTHING
SORRY TO HEAR THAT!!!
Sorry to hear about this. We know that many young child stars were violated which lead most to drugs. When are we going to protect our kids? After it's too late? What a shame.
where the f.uck have yall been mto! todd been said this! mto is late as usual
that is so sad! these parents better listen to their children.
what u talkin bout willis? LOL @uniquesag
SAD, shame on his father!
wow@ comments.... since tod is in his mid 40's this would have happened in the mid to late 70's. the climate was different then kid's didnt have any rights... molestation and a crazy dad no wonder he turned to drugs....
That is messed up. Sorry to hear this.
lmao its wrong to laugh but why am i not surprised. no seriously thats messed up but who actually cares enough to read his autobiography? i dont.and i dont like the fact he is blaming molestation for his horrible life. nicca u were a child star with money who could have made investments and made big moves. u CHOSE to do drugs and thats what ruined ur life. oprah was the definition of poor as hell and was molested but look at her.
Sad... his father was wrong for not believing his son.
Ok then. But the true question is:
Did he bust a nut?
keep the action going into adulthood
@RotorRooter...I hope so
Lmaoo @rotorooter and @fratboy are comedians son
Tragic story if i didnt already know this
@skipfrombk...Well that apart of having intercourse and reaching the top of the game.....
@rotor rooter and @fratboy....yall are sick! i just hate the word Molested! i hate the fact that it happens to kids....it sickens me!
What Yu Talm Bout Willis??
I would prefer to be molested than to be forced to
marry my knocked up sister like ya'll do in
Yeeeeeeeeeeee Haaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwww w!
WHAT A *** HIS DAD WAS.
I thought he already told this story
LOL @ RotorRooter
i think he and bruce will need to jump that guy and cut off his lips call it " die hard with a bridges"
Todd revealed this years ago... this is OLD news MTO. It sickens me that his dad took the man's side. By the way, the man was a friend of Todd's father.
ALL MOLESTERS DESERVE TO BE BEHEADED.
KEEP YOUR HEAD UP WILLIS!
He revealed all this on E! True Hollywood Story years ago. The whole entire cast had hard lives behind closed doors but Todd is really the only one who kept his head up. Kudos to him.
U must b very sick to b attracted to a child & have the audacity to actually perform a sexual act on 1. Very disturbing SMH
You've got to be the most pathetic and sorriest excuse for a human being I've ever seen - or either your likeness to the actual perpetrator is so uncanny you feel like you have to rebutt - you know, defend the *** that took advantage of a child. You make me sick!
dang! i would've killed dat kat....
That must have been really tough for him. God bless his soul.
PS the father is a money hungry son of a ***. Give up your own son for money.
Peice of *** ***.
yeah...he talked about this before
...Todd was always "troubled" as a young man...I can't say I'm surprised...
man folks used to say i look like him,my boy looked like ralph tresvant from new edition,my other boy looked like nas and another homie looked like malcolm jamal warner lol but mto this is old he BEEN talked about this i hate the thought of a child molester lowest *** on earth all them *** need to be chemically casterated!!
I know people that work with Todd. He is doing well for himself and the reason for this is because he has tackled those issues as to why the drug use began. It sounds like he has a real good therapist. He is also a Christian and has a lovely wife and child. He is also working again.
I am very proud of him. Way to be Todd.
It was Fruity Azz Fred that molested him
Your talking about the owner of this site? LOL. Too funny. Yall a trip.
Most kids don't lie about ishh like that. Some ppl don't deserve to be parents.
HE GOT MOLESTED BY HIS FATHER! KEEP YA HEAD UP BROTHA!
This is very sad, and disturbing that this happens to millions of children every year... Something needs to be done to protect children from monsters. What kind of person would do that to a child?
SMDH..Some people on here are so immature & lack empathy for others. He was 12 years old a child ?? It's NEVER the victim's fault ? He told him father who should have had enough LOVE for his son to trust & believe him, and then contact the Police. I can definitely see how that caused him to use drugs to ease his pain. How can you blame him !? He was violated as a child, and to add insult to injury his own father didn't do his God-Given job as a protector.
Yeah, he been told this story and its good to see he is still striving regardless.
Sad, I never knew that. Now his troubled past makes sense...
thats so ***'d up!! man u dnt never knw wats really behind this ppl that are famous caus it seems all of em that are famous done been molested, raped, lost parents to drugs, or sum smdh stay up man!!!!
***... thats not right at all..
A lot of yall need Jesus on this website.

Some how. I just can't bring my self to feel sorry for todd bridges or gary coleman...both of em complete losers and stopped being blk 30+ yrs ago maybe the realroxanne can give em some help..but that would be like the blind leadind the blind
Sober_1 You're stupid - plain and simple. HTF was he supposed to have gone to the cops when his own dad wouldn't believe him? Your comment was as dumb and ugly as that grill you call a face. Maybe YOU should get r@ped so YOU can see how it feels to hear someone make stupid comments BLAMING YOU for something you had no control over.
Tee_Cee what's worse, kids STILL HAVE NO RIGHTS! Major child ***/slave rings are ran by the very entity (law enforcement/gov) we think has our best interest at heart. Chances are, Todd's dad (like so many other child actor's parents) desperate for money and fame pimped him out to the elites. It's a nasty reality people want to ignore that's as rampant today as it was back then and it's up to us to school the clueless. Same with the Jackson's and Osmond's. Marie's son didn't just commit suicide for the heck of it. The Osmonds are victims of multi-generational abuse. Look it up.
