There are no plans for a movie about Dolly and her new book about her relationship with a man she alleges raped her in 1981.
Parton said she did not want to create a movie, but that she hoped to use the book to help other victims.
“I think this is the right thing to do for a lot of women who have been in the closet or are still in the shadows and are still struggling,” Parton told reporters.
“It’s been really challenging for me to go through the whole process of coming forward.”
Parton said it took her nearly a decade to get to this point.
She said she finally found a woman to share her story, who has since been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.
She also has been struggling with her own mental health issues.
She said she has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and support from people around the world.
“People are trying to help me, they’re trying to make sure that I can live, they are trying, they can make me feel better,” Partons said.
“And then I’m also trying to do everything I can to help my mom and dad, and that’s all really hard.”
Partons book, “Dolly Partons: The Truth About Rape, Murder, and Sex Crimes” is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
More to come.
