Duffy was born Aimee Anne Duffy however you may know her best for her stage name, and as the singer, songwriter and Grammy winner that she is.
The talented singer is reemerging after disappearing from the public eye for a few years. Born in Bangor, Wales on June 23, 1984; she was put on the map over a decade ago when she was then compared to her fellow soul-pop contemporaries Amy Winehouse and Adele.
Duffy made a splash around 2008, when she took home best pop vocal album Grammy for ‘Rockferry.’ That same year she was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her hit song ‘Mercy.’
Her 2010 follow-up album, Endlessly, spurred no hits and failed to achieve the same level of Rockferry’s critical success. In the ensuing decade, Duffy would resurface very rarely, with her most notable work being a supporting role in the 2015 crime thriller Legend.
The 35-year-old has revealed the reason for her hiatus, like is standard these days -on social media. As much as we would like to tell you she had been busy working on some new material -she made a jaw dropping revelation.
Duffy who had not posted anything on Instagram since at least 2017, went onto say she was the victim of an abduction, she wrote ‘I was raped and drugged and held captive over some days’
Though is unclear when the ordeal occurred, she went onto say details will be coming out in an interview.
Around 2011 it was reported that she and her boyfriend of over a year, Welsh Rugby player, Mike Phillips have broken up. The two dated for about 18 months and after their split it was reported that Phillips’ career had put a strain on their relationship. Some didn’t understand the breakup as Phillips had declared that she was his ‘dream girl’
Aside from her relationship with Phillips it seems Duffy has not had any other relationships and despite also saying she is now ‘ok and safe now’ is not clear if she is currently in a romantic relationship.
