A WOMAN who fled from a notorious cult is to speak out about her experiences.

Bexy Cameron was born into the strict Children of God sect, known for sexual exploitation and child abuse.

Along with her 11 siblings, Bexy was regularly subjected to physical and psychological abuse and exorcisms until she escaped at the age of 15.

Bexy, now 38, is to reveal more details about her childhood during a live event at Rockwater, Hove tomorrow evening.

Luke Davis, founder of the seafront venue, said: "When establishing Rockwater Hove, I wanted the venue to be so much more than just a bar and restaurant.

“We aspired to provide the Hove community with a hub where not only could people socialise, but could also enjoy an array of unique entertainment.

“Devastatingly moving and utterly unforgettable, the upcoming event the Bexy Cameron event aims to provide residents with an intimate insight into her remarkable story.”

Founded in California in 1968 by the self-proclaimed prophet, David Berg, at its height Children of God had more than 10,000 followers.

By the time Berg died in 1994, he was wanted for questioning by the FBI and Interpol over allegations of incarceration, kidnapping, rape and incest.

An iteration of the group still exists today and is currently known as The Family International and, while all of Bexy’s siblings have now left, her parents are still members.

Bexy had believed that she would die by the age of 14 when armageddon came and she and her fellow cult members would have to fight, using lasers from their eyes, in the “end of days” war.

However when Bexy was 11, a Guardian journalist named Walter Schwarz came to investigate the cult and changed her perspective.

Four years later, aged 15, Bexy escaped after working secret night shifts in a local bar in Leicester and went on to have a successful career as a creative director.

The event will take place at Rockwatwer tomorrow at 7:30 pm.
