Pop starlet-turned-country crooner Jessica Simpson is opening up to Elle magazine about a shockingly painful part of her past -- as a victim of abuse -- which is detailed in her soon-to-be released single.
"I have definitely experienced abuse in a way that I would tell people to take their heart and run," Jess says in an upcoming issue of Elle.
Simpson recently revealed to "Extra" that her newest album -- and most personal yet -- has been a long time in the making. "I've been waiting to let it out," said Jessica. "So it's very exciting."
