Debbie Harry, the singer who gave a number of hits in her legendary career, recalls some of her ordeals in her upcoming memoir. She talked about her heroin use, almost abduction by Ted Bundy and getting raped at knifepoint.
She Was Raped At Knifepoint
Blondie star revealed that she got raped at knifepoint. She said that the armed robber at that time tied her and her then-boyfriend Chris Stein. “Then he poked around searching for anything worth anything,” she wrote about the attack at her New York home. She later added, “He piled up the guitars and Chris’ camera, and then he untied my hands and told me to take off my pants.”
Her shocking revelation further goes as “He f—ked me. And then he said, ‘Go clean yourself.”
But the 74-year-old singer, while shrugging off the brutal attack said: “The stolen guitars hurt me more.”
The rape that is believed to have taken place before she received the limelight in 1970 was reported to police or not is yet not known.
Her Abduction By The Serial Killer Ted Bundy
The second quite shocking revelation by the legend in her forthcoming memoir “Face It” was that she was almost in the hand of serial killer Ted Bundy. Before his execution in 1989, he murdered 30 women.
She opened up that in the early 1990s in Manhattan she once took a lift from a stranger and later she realized that the man is up to something wrong. Harry elaborated the incident as “I got in and the windows were rolled up except an inch and a half at the top. I realized there was no door handle, no window crank, no nothing. The inside of the car was totally stripped out.”
Her fear at that time was expressed by her as “The hairs on the back of my neck just stood up.” She stated that to open the door, she reached through the window to it.
“He tried to stop me by spinning the car, but it helped me fling myself out. After I saw him on the news. Ted Bundy,” she added.
She Once Supplied Heroin To Her Then Boyfriend
Harry also talked about her “over-sexed” adventures in the book that also includes her heroin use with Blondie guitarist Stein from whom she parted ways in 1989. She recalled that once she supplied heroin to her then-boyfriend when he was in the hospital. She said, “Heroin was a great consolation.”
The singer “Heart of Glass,” “Rapture” and many more songs but ‘Blondie’ was the album which helped Harry to shot the fame.
