On April 26th, former "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi will release her memoir A Helluva High Note. But while the book will surely contain tidbits about Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell, it's actually the more personal notes that are raising eyebrows.
DioGuardi says that at age 11 she was sexually assaulted by the teenage son of a family friend.
"On one particular day, he took me into the back shed of his house and put his hands all over my breasts and vagina," she writes. "I remember freezing and not knowing what to do."
She also writes about being sexually assaulted years later by a "fairly known producer" in the music industry, who she had shared a friendly meal with.
"[W]ithin a few hours, he was on top of me, pumping, sweating, and speaking to me in Spanish, not a word of which I could understand," she writes.
And on top of that, an incident on a work-related trip with a "hugely successful artist" turned into debauchery, which she couldn't really get down with. The trip consisted "of watching Russian porn, scavenging around the kitchen for food [and] leering at two strippers ... as they performed sex acts in the living room."
So it seems like A Helluva High Note may have more low notes in it than DioGuardi planned.
