The 35-year-old actress and comedian sat down with talk show host Andy Cohen. During the interview, Schumer spoke about her ex-boyfriend and the abuse she endured during their relationship.
Schumer appeared on Bravos Watch What Happens Live, where she spoke about her anonymous ex, saying,
I changed enough about him that I hope that hes not as easily pinpointed. You date someone when youre young and I have love for him and I wish him the best. I just wanted other people in my situation to know theyre not alone and know it could happen to anyone.
Shes referring to the abusive ex-boyfriend she mentioned in her book titled The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo.
She holds no resentment toward him whatsoever.
In a chapter calledThe Worst Night of My Life, Amy Schumer recounted the emotional and physical abuse she suffered through during her relationship with her ex.Amy writes,
I thought he was the love of my life for a long time but I allowed him to hurt me in ways that I still dont understand. Dan and I would go to happy hours and get drunk, and then hed get mad and shove me little. Sometimes from the shove, Id trip over something and fall, and get hurt.
She didnt stop there. Schumer also revisited the time he threatened to kill her, adding,
I was screaming for him to stopwhen he grabbed a butcher knife from a drawer. And thats when I was sure he was going to kill me. It may sound cliche, but I saw my life flash before my eyes.
Despite the traumatic experiences stemming from her past toxic relationship, Amy Schumer wants the world to know that she still haslove for him regardless.
As for the current state of her love life? Amys been datingChicago-based furniture designer Ben Hanisch since January, according to US Weekly.
During an interview with Howard Stern, Schumer gushed about Hanischs parents, saying,
His parents are the sweetest people. They are from the Midwest. Like, theyre just the happiest. His mom [Deborah Hanisch] always seems like she was just called down as a contestant on [The] Price Is Right She sends me nice notes. Theyre just the loveliest people.
Its good to see that the 35-year-old Trainwreck actress was able to overcome adversity at several different points of her life.
