In her new tell-all book, "The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo," Amy Schumer dramatically detailed an abusive relationship that she had when she was younger.
It was hard at the time, obviously, but she no longer holds a grudge, she told Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live" on Monday.
"You date someone when you're young and I have love for him and I wish him the best," she said. "I just wanted other people in my situation to know they're not alone and know it could happen to anyone. There's not one type of woman who gets in an abusive relationship."
In her book, she spoke openly about a physically and emotionally abusive boyfriend, who she tried to leave twice.
"I was screaming for him to stop, when he grabbed a butcher knife from a drawer," she recalled in the book of the horrific moment when he allegedly tried to stab her. "And that's when I was sure he was going to kill me. It may sound cliche, but I saw my life flash before my eyes."
Another time she said he shoved her onto the hood of a parked car, injuring her head and elbow.
Amy's alleged abuser hasn't reached out to her regarding her accusations, she told Andy, but she tried to allow him to maintain his anonymity.
"I changed enough about him that I hope that he's not as easily pinpointed," she said, adding that, "the way that it happened was through a lot of manipulation, but there's just no type of woman... It can happen to anyone."
She is, of course, in a better place in her life in many ways, especially with her love life. She's been dating furniture designer Ben Hanisch since January and they have traveled all over together.
"We met and totally fell in love and it's been really good," she told Jimmy Fallon in April, joking that their romance "became viral Internet news."
Asked why the topic of her love life was so popular on social media, she told the host, "It's because I think he's really cute and I think people were like, 'What? Dating Amy? But he has all his teeth!' and people were shocked."
