After decades of silence, singer Linda Ronstadt revealed more about the domestic violence that once touched her life.
Ronstadt, one of several speakers at a forum held Friday in connection with Domestic Violence Awareness Month, said the husband of a family member was abusive to his wife and her three children.
Later, when it became evident that the man was beating the children, no one ever confronted him, Ronstadt said. "This particular issue I have a lot of anger about, and it's important to me," she said. "(Now) I'm tattling."
