On Saturday, Little Miss Sunshine actress Abigail Breslin opened up about a horrific past abusive relationship during domestic violence awareness month.

She gave a detailed account on Instagram of surviving domestic abuse for two years.

She had previously used Instagram to share how she had PTSD as a result of s*xual assualt by an ex-boyfriend.

On both occasions, she did not reveal the name of the abusive partner.

In the post, Breslin wrote:

“I was in an abusive relationship for two years. It all started out perfectly, I was so in love. Unfortunately, my abuser took advantage of my innocence and naiveté and the relationship subsequently became violent.”

She shared the traumatic abuse she faced in detail and noted how she had to conceal the fact over the course of the relationship.

"I was beaten on a regular basis, locked into rooms and forced to pretend everything was ok and normal while dealing with intense injuries….. injuries most people didn't even see."

Breslin stated how she was subjected to verbal abuse as well as physical violence by her abuser.

“The physical injuries were also accompanied by a plethora of put-downs, shaming, and harsh verbal abuse.”

She went on to show her gratitude towards the people who supported her during this time.

“These 2 years were the loneliest I have ever felt. I am beyond thankful for the support of my family and friends who played an instrumental and invaluable role in helping me leave this horrible situation.”

Although the Zombieland actress did not identify the abuser, the revelation led to speculation about the actress's dating life.
