Lisa Oldfield, television presenter and reality TV star, has spoken for the first time about being sexually assaulted by a taxi driver on her way home from a Christmas party in 2015.
“He has destroyed the woman I was. The attacker knocked the wind out of me. I have become a victim, not the strong brave fearless Lisa I was before the attack,” Oldfield tells News Local‘s Jo Casamento.
The Real Housewives of Sydney star said the attack almost ruined her marriage of 16 years to One Nation politician David Oldfield.
“I feel self-doubt and I’m not comfortable doing basic things like jumping in a cab any more … that can be really destabilising,” she says.
“And because it happened in broad daylight, it’s not like I am scared of the dark. It was so low risk so I keep asking myself, ‘How did this happen to me? And could it happen again?'”
