LIVING WITH THE PAIN

In the video, a heavily pregnant Nikki approached Artem and asked him if he had read the memoir she and Brie had published. Artem confessed that he was aware only of the broad themes, her parent's divorce, and her relationship with ex-fiancé John Cena, but little else.

Nikki then asked him if she had ever spoken to him about the rapes shed been a victim of, and a shocked Artem told her she never had. Sitting side-by-side, with Artem holding her hand, Nikki shared her story.

RAPED AT 15

Nikki revealed to Artem that she had had her virginity stolen from her at 15 when a supposed friend raped her at a party after she'd had too much to drink. 

The horrifies young Nikki had told no-one about the assault, not even her mother, who was going through a traumatic divorce at the time and didn't even confide in her identical twin Brie.

Nikki admitted that she opened up about her rapes to help other women, especially young girls who have gone through similar experiences

RAPED AT 17

Less than two years later, in what seemed a nightmarish Deja vú, Nikki was raped again. This time her assailant was a college-age man. She and a friend were out on a date with two older men, who "roofied" them.

Nikki explained to Artem that at the time, the two rapes, happening practically back-to-back had made her feel as if she was somehow to blame as if the assaults were her responsibility.

Artem was shocked at the ordeal Nikki had gone through and confessed that he felt helpless and didn't really know how he could help her. Then he did the absolutely perfect thing. He kissed her tenderly and said:

"Thank you for sharing, I appreciate it. I love you."
