Amy Schumer loves to speak her mind on just about everything, so when her new book, The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo, hit stores this week we had to find out what the no-filtered comedian was going to say.
The blonde beauty put the laughter aside and opened about her tough childhood. She revealed that at age 13 she found out her mom was having an affair with a married man named Lou who happened to be the father of Amy’s best friend.
“One day after school I came home and saw my mother slumped on the couch. She’d clearly been crying hard,” Schumer writes. “I am leaving your father. Lou and I have fallen in love with each other.”
She goes on to open up even more about how she lost her virginity at 17 to her boyfriend who took advantage of her while she was sleeping. “Without asking first, without kissing me, without so much as looking me in the eyes – or even confirming if I was awake,” she writes.
And during her early 20s she was in an abusive relationship where Amy thought she might be killed. “He grabbed a huge butcher knife from a drawer,” she writes. “And that’s when I was sure he was going to kill me.”
She went on to talk about her father’s ongoing battle with MS and alcoholism, bearing all for her fans. Of course, there was still some humor in the pages.
Amy admitted she found boyfriend Ben Hanisch on a dating app and isn’t afraid of a sex tape being released.
If that’s not enough Amy for you, she is appearing at a sold out book signing in Jersey City on August 17 and performing at the Prudential Center in Newark September 28th.
