Following Lady Gaga's powerful Oscar performance, Jaime King has opened about being a survivor of sexual assault. The actress shared a lengthy post on Instagram, and while she didn't go into details about the trauma she endured, she wrote at length about the unrelenting support of her loved ones.

Jaime thanked both Lady Gaga and Diane Warren (co-writer of "'Til It Happens to You"), as well as Lena Dunham for her "relentless bravery," and Taylor Swift for "being there no matter what." She also gave herself a much-deserved pat on the back for making it through the experience.

"Thank you to myself to not choosing to not make this a cover story though that was what was suggested to me but to express from my heart to you all personally which felt the most honest way for me to speak," Jaime wrote. "Thank you to my Soul, body, mind, emotions, my inner child, my younger self, I love you. It's a night of celebration, of change, of not being ashamed of your race, creed color, situation, circumstances and environment, or past. Now I am free, somewhat."
