Queen Latifah has spoken for the first time about being a victim of sexual abuse as a child.

The rapper-turned-actress says a teenage babysitter preyed upon her, leaving her unable to form relationships as an adult.

Latifah, 39, told Essence magazine: "He violated me.

"I never told anybody. I just buried it as deeply as I could and kept people at an arms length. I never really let a person get too close to me.

"I could have been married years ago, but I had a commitment issue."
