MY DAD BROKE MY LEGS.
FREDDIE Starr yesterday revealed his dad broke his legs and bullied him when he was just six.
The comedian, 64, admitted the abuse he suffered as a boy for the first time on his website.
He said: "My father abused me. Not sexual abuse. He used to beat on me and broke my legs."
Freddie also claimed he stopped speaking as a boy. He explained: "At six a psychosomatic illness robbed the young Freddie of the power of speech, and he spent two years away from his family recovering."
The Liverpool-born comedian said recently: "My father wasn't a very nice man. I don't like to speak about it at all."
But yesterday he added: "Time is a great healer and you try to put it behind you."
