Barry Gibb has revealed a man tried to molest him when he was a child, saying the memory was still “vivid”.
The Bee Gees star told Radio Times he had “never said this before”, adding: “Should I be saying it now?”
He explained: “A man tried to molest me when I was about four-years-old.
“He didn’t touch me, but other things happened and happened to other kids. And eventually they came and arrested him, and woke me up during the night.”
The singer added: “Four years old and a policeman on your bed at four in the morning interviewing you. If that doesn’t teach you about life, nothing does. But it’s vivid for me still. I’ve never told anyone.”
Barry Gibb was living with his family in the Isle of Man at the time.
He was speaking ahead of his performance on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury on June 25, 16:00 local time.
Barry Gibb is following in the footsteps of the likes of Johnny Cash, James Brown and Dolly Parton in the legends slot.
In 2016, Barry Gibb joined Coldplay, who were headlining Sunday night, performing renditions of To Love Somebody and Stayin’ Alive.
