"No se imaginan cuántas veces pensé en escribir esto".

La cantante explicó que "fui violada y drogada y mantenida en cautividad durante varios días".

You can only imagine the amount of times I thought about writing this. The way I would write it, how I would feel thereafter. Well, not entirely sure why now is the right time, and what it is that feels exciting and liberating for me to talk. I cannot explain it. Many of you wonder what happened to me, where did I disappear to and why. A journalist contacted me, he found a way to reach me and I told him everything this past summer. He was kind and it felt so amazing to finally speak. The truth is, and please trust me I am ok and safe now, I was raped and drugged and held captive over some days. Of course I survived. The recovery took time. There’s no light way to say it. But I can tell you in the last decade, the thousands and thousands of days I committed to wanting to feel the sunshine in my heart again, the sun does now shine. You wonder why I did not choose to use my voice to express my pain? I did not want to show the world the sadness in my eyes. I asked myself, how can I sing from the heart if it is broken? And slowly it unbroke. In the following weeks I will be posting a spoken interview. If you have any questions I would like to answer them, in the spoken interview, if I can. I have a sacred love and sincere appreciation for your kindness over the years. You have been friends. I want to thank you for that x Duffy Please respect this is a gentle move for me to make, for myself, and I do not want any intrusion to my family. Please support me to make this a positive experience.

Su primer disco, 'Rockferry', vendió nueve millones de copias, pero ella desapareció de los escenarios poco después de su lanzamiento. "Me siento emocionada y liberada por poder hablar de esto". La cantante decidió tomarse un tiempo para ella porque en la última década no veía luz y "no le quería mostrar al mundo la tristeza en sus ojos".  

Duffy le pidió a sus seguidores que respeten este pequeño paso que ha dado por su bienestar y que no involucren a su familia para "hacer de esto una experiencia positiva". Todo apunta a que la estrella musical volverá porque su "corazón se está recuperando". En las próximas semanas publicará una entrevista en la que dará más detalles de lo que sucedió.
