Eddie Guerrero’s Daughter Accuses Stepdad Of Sexual Assault
Eddie Guerrero’s daughter Sherilyn has bravely gone public with allegations of sexual assault against her own stepdad and says her mother Vickie Guerrero took his side when she told her what happened.
Eddie Guerrero remains an icon in the wrestling world as seen at WrestleMania 39 where – eighteen years after the former WWE Champion’s death – one of the loudest ovations of the night came when his music hit as Rey Mysterio arrived at the SoFi Stadium in a low rider, just as Eddie had done countless times in his career.
In 2015, Vickie Guerrero married Kris Benson, who has now been accused of sexual assault by Vickie and Eddie’s youngest daughter Sherilyn.
Taking to her TikTok account to tell her story, Sherilyn Guerrero says she doesn’t talk to her mother or sister, Shaul Guerrero, although she’d love to, before detailing the alleged sexual assault she suffered on a family holiday by her stepdad:
“Come 2020 before COVID, there was a cruise that my family had went on. And basically on this cruise, I got sexually assaulted. And the unfortunate part was that it was by my stepdad. Yeah, it was by my stepdad. And was I the only one? No, but that’s not my business to put their story out there. But it happened to me. The fact that I protected somebody who doesn’t give a sh*t about me, is beyond me, but growth and maturity right? I lived with them, so I didn’t know what to do.”
“Basically fast forward the following year when I got injured on my knee, my mom was the only one out there in Houston that’s family and she was helping me with that. There was basically a conversation, and granted let me tell you I have told my mom how uncomfortable I am with him after it happened and basically she was always telling me it was a mistake. It’s not who he is.”
Chavo Guerrero, Eddie’s nephew took to social media to show his support for Sherilyn:
“Just to let everyone know, I fully support my cousin, Sherilyn Guerrero, Eddie’s daughter & have been doing so privately in the last couple years of her struggles. She is a very strong woman for coming forward with the sexual assault she has suffered. I Love You Prima!”
