Carly Simon is the first to admit she did not have a typical childhood ... at least when it comes to sex.
In her new memoir, Boys in the Trees, the now 70-year-old reveals that she had her first sexual encounters with a teenage family friend when she was just seven-years-old.
"It was heinous," the iconic singer explains in a new interview. "It changed my view about sex for a long time."

Although she told her older sisters at the time, they didn't believe her until she showed them the book. "Neither of them were at all aware of what had happened to me," she shares. "I told them the first year that it was happening, and they thought I was just trying to be one of the bigger girls."
But despite the fact that she was being abused, Carly recalls she was extremely upset when her mother forbid the boy from coming to their house one summer.
"I was devastated because I thought I was in a romance. Which I think happens to a lot of girls," she tells People magazine. "Your libido overpowers everything! You’re so libidinous even at the age of nine and ten. And sometimes there’s an outlet there."
Carly has since had her fair share of relationships with famous men, including Warren Beatty, whom she confirmed is the subject of the second verse of her hit 1972 song, "You're So Vain."
