Julianne Hough covers the February 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan
. In the interview
, Julianne talks about a how she left Utah at age 10 to study dance at the Italia Conti Academy of Arts in London. In London, Julianne says she was abused by some of the adults around her. She doesn't identify any of them by name.
Julianne says, "While I was in London, I was abused, mentally, physically, everything. I'm a very forgiving person, and I don't want to hurt anybody. What's past is past."
Julianne also said, "This is the farthest I've ever gotten into my London situation. I was told if I ever went back to the United States, three things were going to happen. One: I was going to amount to nothing. Two: I was going to work at Whataburger. And three: I was going to end up a slut. So, it was like, I can't go back. I have to be this person."
The issue will arrive on newsstands on January 8, 2013.
