'The Game' actor Hosea Chanchez reveals he was molested as a teen by his friend’s father

Hosea Chanchez, who is best known for his role on The Gameopened up about a traumatizing incident in his youth. 

The 37-year-old actor revealed he was molested at the age of 14. In an Instagram post on Tuesday, he explained how fear kept him from sharing how a friend's father molested him and threatened him if he told anyone. 

Hosea, the child of a single mother, said he viewed the older man as a father figure. "He would always tell me I was like his other son, so I can trust he's always looking for me," he said. "Further building my trust and commitment to his predatory agenda." 

When the actor turned 14, their conversations turned sexual. "A week before this day, my friend's dad was asking me what type of girls I liked and if I had sex with a girl yet," he said. "I didn't know at the time but he was trying to see where my boundaries were. He was using false hyper-masculinity as a way to sniff out my comfort level with sex and privacy." 

Hosea then revealed as he was given a ride home, his father's friend (who he later revealed to be a man named Issac Sanders) took a detour route and molested him.
