Angela Simmons recently opened up to Taraji P. Henson and Tracie Jade about being in an abusive relationship on the Facebook Watch series, “Peace Of Mind with Taraji.”

Angela posted a preview clip of the episode to her Instagram account with a caption explaining that it wasn’t an easy topic to open up about, but she knows “there other women who are going through the same thing.”

This wasn’t easy to do. Or open up about.

But I know there other women who are going though the same thing. And it’s still not easy to listen back to. 🙏🏽I opened up to @tarajiphenson and @traciejade on #PeaceofMind with Taraji, out now on Facebook Watch.

In the clip, Angela Simmons reveals that a lot of the abuse started off mental, but when she started seeing bruises she realized that it was “actually real.”

Taraji also revealed that she was in an abusive relationship at one point of her life, and she is missing a part of her lip because of it.
