Barry Gibb: 'A man tried to abuse me when I was four'

By Laura Harding

Bee Gees star Barry Gibb has revealed a man tried to molest him when he was a young child.

The singer told the Radio Times the details of what happened "would be unpalatable".

"But there was a moment in time when 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," he said.

"And eventually they came and arrested him, and they woke me up during the night. 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 anybody," he said.
