However, he punched the clergyman and ran off.The 47-year-old doesn’t reveal when he finally opened up to his mother about the incident, but he explains he told his brother first. “It took a minute because I felt I was supposed to be at a place where they were supposed to take care of me and I was supposed to trust these people,” he said during a US chat show “The View”.
“I didn’t know how to tell my mother that this happened and I didn’t know how to tell anybody that it happened. I knew she would believe me. I knew my mother would be nuts, so I told my brother.” PTI
