Roman Polanski rape victim releasing book

  • The woman who was raped back in 1977 by Roman Polanski is now breaking her 35 year silence by releasing a book. 

    The cover of the book features a photograph of Samantha Geimer taken just days before she was drugged and raped by Polanski in the home of Jack Nocholson. Geimer was 13 at the time. 

    The cover photo had been taken by Polanski himself during his first photo shoot with the victim. Geimer was raped during their second photo shoot together when she was also drugged and given alcohol. 

    Her book is reportedly supposed to break her silence and "tell her story for the first time."

    The photo used for the cover of her book had been obtained during the lawsuit that she had filed against Polanski.

    The book is scheduled to release on September 17.
