‘This monster ruined my life’: Former Neighbors star Madeleine West, 42, claims she was sexually abused as a child

Former Neighbors star Madeleine West has claimed she was sexually abused as a child by a “monster” who lived in the same town as her.

The 42-year-old Melbourne actress has now gone public with her story after decades of keeping it secret so she can help others suffering.

Madeline played Dione ‘Dee’ Bliss and Andrea Somers on the soap opera from 2000 to 2020 and also starred in the 2007 film The Condemned.

Madeleine has revealed that the alleged abuser lived in the same town as her and that the abuse was regular – sometimes even daily. She did not give any further details of the attack and did not name the alleged perpetrator.

She told The Sun about the alleged abuse: “This monster has ruined my life. I came out the other side, yes, a survivor but happy to hold the title of victim.

“Justice can be achieved. It was never your fault and never will be, it’s not your fault.’

“I seek justice now. Anyone out there posting, watching, or hurting a child, your time is up. The wheel turns.’

She has now started a new podcast called Predatory to shed light on pedophilia with ex-detective Gary Jubelin.

The star is also calling for a national public child gender registry in Australia and will work to change the law to provide fair compensation to victims.

Madeleine added that pedophiles can be “extraordinarily calculating” to get what they want and that people often “turn back” especially when the abusers are in their “inner circle”.

The soap actress also revealed that she doesn’t want to take any chances with her own six children and always takes them to playground trips and birthday parties.

It comes as she prepares to stand as an independent candidate in the 2023 NSW state election.

The soap star announced her intention to run for office during an interview with Studio 10 in March last year.

The Byron Bay-based philanthropist, who has spent weeks supporting flood recovery efforts in north NSW, told the program she was frustrated with how the NSW Government was handling the disaster.

“I no longer agitate to see change, I want to be change.

“And so today I officially announce that I intend to stand as a candidate for state legislature in next year’s NSW general election,” she said, as Studio 10 presenters Sarah Harris and Tristan MacManus cheered.
