Roseanne Barr revealed during a television interview that she has a connection to the phone-hacking scandal in which media mogul Rupert Murdoch currently finds himself embroiled, msnbc.com reports.
Appearing on the talk show “Chelsea Lately” to promote her Lifetime reality show “Roseanne’s Nuts,” Barr told host Chelsea Handler that she believes she was a victim of questionable reporting tactics early in her career, with Murdoch allegedly pulling the strings.
"I’m so happy to see Rupert Murdoch’s stuff crumbling,” Barr said, “because when he came to our country, I was one of his first targets. He tapped my phones and people went through my garbage, and all that kind of stuff does kind of drive you crazy."
Barr admitted that she struggled with her mental health at the time, and compared her ordeal to what Charlie Sheen has been going through more recently.
Barr added that she’s glad Murdoch is apparently finally “going down.”
