Former "America's Next Top Model" judge Nigel Barker dropped a bombshell on his Sirius XM radio show "Gentleman's Code."

He admitted to his listeners that he was sexually assaulted when he was eight years old.

The 43-year-old reality star said that a man first asked him for directions, then shoved him into a building stairwell and pulled his pants down.

Barker says he was able to escape, but never talked about the incident with his family because he felt humiliated.

He did eventually tell his family after his sister was assaulted three years later.

Barker decided to talk about the horrifying ordeal on his show in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
