Her words are chilling and a cautionary tale:
"I remember being that girl in the middle of the gas station trying to call 911 or call my mom and he's got me by my head and by my hair and he's pulling me back and there's people just watching and they don't know what to do.

This apparently happened when Milian was in her late teens.
