Alanis Morissette opens up about being raped by "multiple men" when she was aged just 15.

Alanis Morissette has revealed that she was raped at the age of just 15 by "multiple men".

The 47-year-old opens up about her ordeal, which happened before she entered the music industry, in a new documentary film for HBO.

"I'm going to need some help because I never talk about this," she says.

"It took me years in therapy to even admit there had been any kind of victimisation on my part.

"I would always say I was consenting, and then I'd be reminded like 'Hey, you were 15, you're not consenting at 15.' Now I'm like, 'Oh yeah, they're all paedophiles. It's all statutory rape."

The film, Jagged, is due for release later this year.
