Gaga said that she has gradually learned how to cope, but said that the improvement in her mental health was not a ‘straight line’.
The Bad Romance singer had previously spoken about being raped in a 2014 interview, saying she had initially kept it a secret for seven years.
The following year, Gaga wrote the song Til It Happens To You with Diane Warren for the soundtrack for The Hunting Ground, a documentary about campus rape in the United States.
Highlighting the devastating effect of of sexual assault, Gaga performed the song at the Oscars in 2016, with 50 survivors of sexual assault joining her on stage.
Also in The Me You Can’t See, Oprah and Glenn Close share their stories, and Prince Harry gets candid about the trauma he suffered after the death of his mother Princess Diana when he was 12 years old.

But I slowly became aware that, OK, I wasn’t drinking Monday to Friday, but I would probably drink a week’s worth in one day on a Friday or a Saturday night.
‘And I would find myself drinking, not because I was enjoying it but because I was trying to mask something.’
The Me You Can’t See is available to stream on Apple TV+.
