Sexual assault has been a huge topic in the media in light of the presidential election and abuse transpiring all over the world. It is being reported that Adrienne Bailon has recently opened up about her past sexual assault.

According to FOX News Latino, the 32-year-old co-host of the hit talk show "The Real" opened up about teenage sexual abuse by entertainment-industry executives.

The actress said she was just a teenager when it happened and let it go on. The site reports that she even believed at first that he had done it by accident.

She goes on to say that many women are living in fear and, its not ok.

"Obviously that happened then, I would never allow that to happen now, but a lot of women are in fear,” said Bailon, who added that fear plays a big part in allowing men to get away with the harassment. “These men are usually –"

Then Bailon's co-host Jeannie Mai cut in, saying, "Famous."

Bailon nodded, adding, "Because you're famous you think you can get away with it.”

While Bailon has not named who the music executive is or where she worked, the admission is giving the music industry a bad look. She is not the first woman to admit sexual assault with Kesha, Rose McGowan and many others revealing their personal ordeals.
