Kristen Chenoweth reacts to the shocking Diddy video by revealing that she was "severely abused" several years ago.

Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth has disclosed that she was "severely abused" several years ago.

The 55-year-old - known for her roles in Wicked and Glee - shared details of her own experience following the release of a shocking video which saw Diddy physically attack his then-girlfriend Cassie in 2016.

Diddy has since apologised for his actions, although for Chenoweth the video resurfaced memories of her own abuse.

"Honestly i have my reasons for the Sean Combs video bothering me so much. The main thing i need to do is pray for him. For real," she wrote on X.

"Never wanted to come out with it, but here we go. Several years ago i was severely abused. It took me therapy and prayer to understand i deserved better. I was deeply injured physically and spiritually.

"The only thing i knew to do when i got out was pray. Pray for myself. Pray for him as he grew up abused. So. There yall go."

Following her abusive relationship, Chenoweth began dating the country music star Josh Bryant and tied the knot with him last year.
