BEETLE JUICE ENTERTAINER says she endured years of abuse by a former producer, and she now wants her career back.
“I have been abused by the company for many years, from the beginning,” said the star of the comedy show “Beetle Juice.”
“They abused me, and they raped me and they tortured me and then they threatened me that I would go out of business.”
Ms. Zuccaro, a former teen star who is now 26, said in a statement that she was a victim of “the worst sexual abuse and abuse of any child I have ever known.”
She said she has been trying to bring the company’s name to light for years.
Ms. Zeucararo, who has starred in movies such as “Beets” and “The Adventures of Bob and Tom,” also said that she is seeking compensation from the producer, who she alleges was abusive and verbally abusive to her.
“For the past several years, I have been repeatedly abused by Mr. Ouellette, a producer, director, and director of the production company, which he had hired to produce my series, ‘Beetles,'” she said.
“He made me do sex acts and raped me, beat me, abused me.
I did not report it to my parents or to the police until I was 17, and then I only went public with it in January 2018.” “
The abuse continued after I left the company, when I was only 15, and it continued after the production was canceled.
I did not report it to my parents or to the police until I was 17, and then I only went public with it in January 2018.”
Ms, Zuccararo said she was raped by producer Peter “Peter” Ouellettes, who died last year.
Mr. Zucarararo says she has not been paid since her release from the company in January.
“It’s been a difficult process, but I’ve had to fight to keep my name alive.
I want to be a celebrity and I want people to recognize me, but it is a very difficult journey,” she said in the statement.
Mr Ouelletes was not immediately available for comment.
In 2015, the entertainment giant said it would stop working with Mr. Zeucaaro after allegations of sexual harassment and assault emerged.
The producer, now 44, was also accused of rape by a female employee in 2016, but the woman has not spoken publicly.
The production company has also said it will no longer be working with any “Zuccaro-affiliated” talent.
