The Girls Trip star graces the cover of GLAMOUR magazine's September 2018 issue where she opens up about being sexually assulted in her cover story. It seems, celebs are speaking out more and more about their past sexual assaults as the #METOO movement put rape culture on front street. As it should.

“That whole experience put me in such a messed-up place for a long time, and I ended up going to counseling,” she opened up.

"The Last O.G." star said she reported the incident, however, it still bothers her. And without a plan, she's just not going to be talking about it just to be talking.

“Me just yelling out people’s names with no thought behind it is pointless. I need a plan,” she shared. “I could be a voice, but what’s a voice going to do—just keep talking? Or is there action behind it?”

She said after the experience, it changed her behavior around men to keep them away from her.

“I notice that men are afraid of women that are aggressive. So to protect myself I become semi-aggressive,” she explained. “You hear about, ‘Tiffany always hitting on somebody,’ but that’s to keep them from hitting on me.”

The 38-year-old actress is not totally afraid of men as she was married and divorced. The actress parted ways with her ex-husband William Stewart in 2013. There have been rumors that he physically abused her during their marriage, but he has denied it. And he's suing her.

While she keeps a smile on her face, she hasn't shied away from details about her troubled past. In her memoir "The Last Black Unicorn," she talked about growing up with an abusive mother who had mental health issues. She also opened up about growing up in the foster care system and being molested by one of her foster days.

As for what's shaking in her love life now?

“I don’t really have time. And I’ve had enough somebodies,” she noted. “I done ran through 38 dudes, OK? Body count, yeah. Mine is 38. Write it down. Let them know. I’ve had 38 experiences.”

No filter. Ever.

You never know what a person is going through or have been through, which is why he should practice spreading more love and less hate. What's crazy is that folks are on social media saying she "talks too much" after reading about her story:

 

Sighs.
