Jan Broberg claims she was abducted by Robert Berchtold, a man she considered a “second father,” twice while growing up. The first time, at age 12, the actress says she was tied up in the back of a motor home and Berchtold convinced her that they had been abducted by aliens and had to complete a mission. She claims she was raped and brainwashed into believing they were supposed to have a child together to “save the dying planet” — and that her family continued to be friends with Berchtold after she was rescued.
