do you happen to know if it's true that sharon was victim to a date rape when she was a teenager living in italy? i've never heard of this before, but i was looking around the web and came across this info. i don't know what to think

Yes, apparently so. Someone mentioned that it happened in Washington but I read that it happened in Italy by a soldier who took her on a date.
