In an interview, Nancee said that she was raped by her father Jerry, when she was just 12 years old. He used to sexually harass her whenever he used to come home drunk. That was also the reason which made her enter the adult movie industry.

She used to take drugs in order to forget the pain that she got when her father raped her, which later became her habit.
