AnnaLynne McCord felt 'suicidal' after rape

Oct 27 2013, 12:34pm CDT | by Bang Showbiz

'90210' star AnnaLynne McCord felt "suicidal" after being raped as a child.

The 26-year-old beauty - who played Naomi Clark on the hit teen drama - has opened up about the traumatic ordeal she experienced as a youngster, revealing that she wanted to end her life after being molested.

AnnaLynne was speaking at a fundraiser for the Somaly Mam Foundation, which raises money to support women sold into sex slavery and human trafficking, in New York earlier this week when she broke down on stage.

She candidly said: "I was raped. I was abused as a child. This is so important to me. I was suicidal. I cut my arms up. I wanted to die. I had a bottle of pills in a hotel and I was ready to end it all."

The actress' shocking admission came before a star-studded crowd including talk show host Katie Couric and actor Dylan McDermott.

Her rousing speech resulted in an additional $35,000 being raised for the charity, according to PageSix.com, and ultimately, the event raised $700,000 in total.

AnnaLynne, who previously romanced 'Twilight' hunk Kellan Lutz and is currently dating 'Prison Break' actor Dominic Purcell, first revealed her rape ordeal last year.

She said at the time: "It happened to me once by somebody that I knew and it is a very interesting thing to feel that you do not have the voice to say 'no'. I did not know how to say, 'I don't want this. Please do not do this to me.'‚ÄČ"

The actress, who starred on '90210' between 2008 and earlier this year, was involved in a rape storyline in the show as well.
