Duffy reveals harrowing details of four-week rape ordeal which saw the singer drugged on her birthday and abducted abroad before being held captive in her own home
Singer Duffy has written about her horrific rape and kidnap ordeal, sharing details for the first time.
The Welsh singer-songwriter, 35, previously spoke about the incident in February, and said she would not give a face-to-face interview about the ordeal, and has instead now chosen to write in detail on her website.
She details how during a four week period she was drugged at a restaurant where she was celebrating her birthday, before being abducted abroad and raped, and then flown home where she was held captive in her own home.

‘It was my birthday, I was drugged at a restaurant, I was drugged then for four weeks and travelled to a foreign country,’ Duffy writes in a lengthy entitled The 5th House.
‘I can’t remember getting on the plane and came round in the back of a travelling vehicle. I was put into a hotel room and the perpetrator returned and raped me. I remember the pain and trying to stay conscious in the room after it happened.’
‘I was stuck with him for another day, he didn’t look at me, I was to walk behind him, I was somewhat conscious and withdrawn. I could have been disposed of by him
‘I contemplated running away to the neighbouring city or town, as he slept, but had no cash and I was afraid he would call the police on me, for running away, and maybe they would track me down as a missing person’
‘I do not know how I had the strength to endure those days, I did feel the presence of something that helped me stay alive.’
‘I flew back with him, I stayed calm and as normal as someone could in a situation like that, and when I got home, I sat, dazed, like a zombie. I knew my life was in immediate danger, he made veiled confessions of wanting to kill me.’
‘The perpetrator drugged me in my own home in the four weeks, I do not know if he raped me there during that time, I only remember coming round in the car in the foreign country and the escape that would happen by me fleeing in the days following that.
‘I do not know why I was not drugged overseas; it leads me to think I was given a class A drug and he could not travel with it.’
