Demi Moore has alleged her late mother allowed her to be raped in exchange for $500.

The 56-year-old actress has been speaking out about her life recently as she promotes her new memoir Inside Out – which is set to be released on Tuesday. She has now alleged she was raped at the age of 15, and claimed her mother was paid $500 by her rapist.

“I don’t think it was a straightforward transaction. But she still did give him the access and put me in harm’s way.”

Speaking to Diane Sawyer for ‘Good Morning America’ on Monday, Demi claimed her alleged rapist asked her at the time: “How does it feel to be wh**ed by your mother for $500?”

But Demi doesn’t believe her mother – who passed away in 1998 – “sold” her, as she says she doesn’t think the alleged incident was a “straightforward transaction”.

When Diane asked her if she thinks her mother sold her, the Ghost star said: “No. In my deep heart, I don’t think it was a straightforward transaction. But she still did give him the access and put me in harm’s way.”
