Survivor of Domestic Abuse, Kristin Chenoweth, Opens Up About Deep Emotional Trauma

In a recent post on X (formerly Twitter), Kristin Chenoweth bravely opened up about being a survivor of domestic abuse. The talented star, known for her role in “Pushing Daises,” shared that during those challenging times, she turned to prayer for solace and strength. Chenoweth acknowledged the profound impact that the abuse had on her, but she also revealed that she chooses to keep the person responsible in her prayers.

In her post, Kristin didn’t provide much information about the specifics of her own experience or the identity of her abuser. However, she did mention that witnessing the disturbing 2016 video of Sean “Diddy” Combs assaulting his then-girlfriend Cassie Ventura deeply affected her. She expressed the importance of praying for him, stating, “Honestly, I have my reasons for the Sean Combs video bothering me so much. The main thing I need to do is pray for him. For real.”

After Kristin shared the initial tweet, a fan responded and recounted their own experience with domestic abuse. This prompted Kristin to open up about her own past. She bravely stated, “I never wanted to come out with it, but here we go. Several years ago, I endured severe abuse. It took therapy and prayer for me to realize that I deserved better. I was deeply wounded, both physically and spiritually.”

She expressed that after going through everything, her instinctive response was to pray. “When I got out, the only thing I knew to do was pray. I prayed for myself and I prayed for him as he grew up in an abusive environment. So, there you all go,” she shared. In a subsequent message, she acknowledged that it was the lowest point in her life and provided an update on her relationship with the man. “I must admit that I haven’t forgiven him yet. It’s something beyond my understanding. However, God is guiding me through this process,” she wrote.
