“It was rape and a devastating betrayal revealed by the man’s cruel question, ‘How does it feel to be whored by your mother for $500?’” the actress wrote in her memoir. 

Diane, 73, asked Demi if she really thought he mother sold her. “I think in my deep heart, no,” Demi replied. But she still blamed her for what happened.
