Former Idols SA judge Marah Louw was abused, and has now opened up about it.
According to TshisaLIVE, Louw divulged the abuse in her autobiography which is titled, It's me Mara.
The site adds that Louw recently appeared on DJ Sbu's breakfast show and spoke more about the abuse, which involved being chased with a spear.
"There was a time he bashed my head into the taxi window," Louw revealed on the show. She continued: "That taxi had other musicians inside".
"He owned spears and one day he chased after me with one and I ran into his mother's room where his sister slept."
Louw says that she may have not lived to see another day had she not ran into the room. "Maybe if I didn't do that, I would have died," Louw added.
