What's the story?

Eve Torres took to Instagram to share her personal story on the night of which she was allegedly sexually assaulted by an unknown male individual.

In case you didn't know..

Eve Torres has been associated with the WWE since 2007 when she won the WWE Diva Search. From there, she went on to win the WWE Divas Championship thrice. Although she left the WWE in 2012, she was made a WWE ambassador in 2014. She even appeared last year at WWE Evolution, marking her first in-ring appearance in several years.

She has also been married to Rener Gracie since 2014, nephew of former UFC champion, Royce Gracie.

The heart of the matter...

Eve Torres took to Instagram to detail her sad story on the night that she was allegedly sexually assaulted. The full post is embedded below. She also explained her actions in coming forward.

It is still Sexual Assault Awareness month, and I felt it was important to share this. For some, it takes decades and many life experiences to truly process what has occurred in our past. I didn’t tell anyone about my assault for over 10 years, likely because of shame, shock, denial, and an inability to come to terms with it. I thought surviving an assault would become my “identity,” and what I thought that meant at the time challenged my beliefs about who I thought it was. I now know this is far from the truth.
I know many women (and men) have still yet to processes many parts of their past. One might think that after 10 or more years, the wounds have healed, but while wounds left unattended can heal, they leave scars that exist with us for life. It is never too late to talk to someone about your past. It’s never too late to start healing.

What's next?

Eve Torres was brave in coming out with this personal story. It's never easy to do so and one can only imagine the trauma that she endured in facing it head-on. Like any other victim, she deserves our respect, understanding, and attention.
