Brother Who Molested Mo'Nique Admits Abuse

April 20, 2010 Oprah Winfrey

Mo'Nique's brother has admitted that he sexually abused her. Gerald Imes appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show on Monday and apologized to the "Precious" star.

Imes admitted that he molested the 42-year-old actress when she was 7 or 8 years old and he was 13.

She told Oprah, "I abused and betrayed the trust of another sibling, my sister, my blood sister. I'm sorry, Mo'Nique. I'm sorry."

"Hopefully, somewhere, somehow, as siblings, we can come back together as brother and sister."

Mo'Nique said in an interview with Essence magazine in 2008 that Gerald, her eldest sibling, sexually abused when she was 7 years old. When she told her parents about it, he denied her accusation. Nothing was done and the incest continued until she was 15.

She did not appear on the talk show's episode, but Winfrey told the audience that Mo'Nique gave her blessing to conduct the interview.
