Former “Glee” star Naya Rivera has revealed in her memoir “Sorry Not Sorry” that she got pregnant back in late 2010, but decided to get an abortion for the sake of her career.
In an excerpt from the book, Rivera, 29, says she found out that she’s pregnant with Ryan Dorsey’s baby just weeks after she broke up with him.
She decided she didn’t want the baby and terminated the pregnancy when she was taking a day off from filming “Glee”, reported People magazine.
Rivera writes in her book that she didn’t tell Dorsey about the baby.
“It was very scary to open up about it. It’s not something a lot of people talk about, but I think they should. I know some people might read it and say, ‘What the Hell?’ But I hope someone out there gets something out of it,” she said.
That “someone” she hopes will get something out of her book is son Josey whom she welcomed with Dorsey last year after they got married in 2014.
“I hope Josey will read it one day. I hope it gives him a better perspective on the issues women face. And hopefully he’ll think I’m cool as hell,” she said.
