Jessica Simpson urges women to run away from abusive men

Washington, Mar 14 : According to Jessica Simpson, women who're in abusive relationships should "run so far away."

While at a concert in Phoenix, the 28-year-old singer, who has admitted she was in an abusive relationship, doled out the advice before belting out the ballad, "Remember That," which features the lyrics: "It doesn''t matter how he hurts you/With his hands or with his words/You don''t deserve it."

"In love, we all go through a lot of things, and a lot of things unfortunately make us stay there [in the relationship]," Us magazine quoted her, as telling the crowd at the Cricket Wireless Pavilion.

"No matter what you go through in life, no matter what abuse you go through, take your heart and run so far away," she added.

Simpson spoke more on relationship issues before singing "Still Don''t Stop Me," which she said she wrote about "a guy that I couldn''t get over."

"After I wrote that song, I was mad at myself for being so weak, and I got over that guy!" added the singer, who was wed to Nick Lachey and went on to date John Mayer. (ANI)
