DEMI Moore has revealed she raped aged 15 by a man who paid her alcoholic mum £400.
In an interview with Good Morning America, the 56-year-old star said the man asked her “how does it feel being wh***d out?” after the attack.
Moore was discussing her new book “Inside Out” with host Diane Sawyer and said her mother Virginia King began taking her to bars so that they together would get attention from men.
The star ot to fame in 1985 Brat Pack flick St Elmo’s Fire, leading to a string of successes that includes Ghost, Indecent Proposal, Striptease and A Few Good Men with Tom Cruise.
In the book she recalled that after one outing she came home one night and her mother was in their apartment with an older man, who had the keys to their apartment.
After he raped her, Moore says the man asked her how it felt “to be wh***d by your mother for $500”.
“It was rape and a devastating betrayal,” she writes in the book.
The actress was asked by Sawyer if she thought she was pimped out by her mother.
“’I think in my deep heart, no. I don’t think it was a straight forward transaction but she still did give him the access and put me in harm’s way,” she replied.
The rape occurred when she was 16 in Hollywood, where her mother moved after splitting up with her father.
Soon after she left home and began her acting career after that.
Moore also said both her parents suffered from alcoholism and the family moved across the country frequently as they faced debt.
She was 12 when her mother first attempted suicide and recalls having to use her hands to take pills out of her mum’s mouth during one attempt to take her own life.
“I remember using my fingers, the small fingers of a child, to dig the pills my mother had tried to swallow, out of her mouth,” Moore recalls in her book.
