Tisha Campbell-Martin and Martin Lawrence Kiss and Make Up — Literally!

Tisha Campbell-Martin is the latest celeb to share her very personal story of enduring sexual abuse as a child, opening up after a discussion about the abuse Olympian Simone Biles faced at the hands of former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

“I will say I’m very open about me being sexually abused when I was three years old,” said the actress to E!’s Daily Pop. “And when children, especially in their formative years, have something like that happen to them, it’s devastating. I told, I told right away, right away I told. I had a father who was a big guy and I trusted that he would protect me. So I told my dad immediately, but it still affects you later on in life.”

Campbell spoke on the matter following Biles and several other young athletes confronting Nassar, with the gymnast posting a lengthy #MeToo message on Twitter this January.

Campbell is also believed to be starring in the upcoming reboot of 90s sitcom, Martin. She all but confirmed the news to Hip Hollywood and was recently spotted hanging with co-stars Martin Lawrence and Tichina Arnold.
