Gorgeous model-turned-actress, CARRE OTIS, has spoken of the torment she suffered at the hands of her ex-husband, film star MICKEY ROURKE.
The former alcoholic and drug addict was left 'battered, miserable and lacking in identity' after her turbulent 3 year marriage to the former bad boy of Hollywood, and described him as an absolute 'ogre'.
32-year-old Otis claims that Rourke could sometimes be an amazing, talented little boy', but would plunge into 'periods of being terribly violent'. The pair, who met on the set of 80s blockbuster WILD ORCHID, married in 1992, despite their dangerously rocky relationship. They proceeded to have matching tattoos done on their upper arms,but it was shortly after this that Rourke was seen punching and kicking Otis at a party.
She says, "Worse than the beatings were his infidelities. "My wardrobe was stolen by girls who would come to the house and I would think, 'What's wrong with me, why won't he sleep with me?'". (CAZ/WNTTI/PDD)
