Naya Rivera Reveals Secret ‘Glee’ Abortion



Naya Rivera took a brave step in her upcoming memoir, ‘Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up,’ by revealing that she got an abortion in late 2010 during a day off of filming for ‘Glee.’


At the time, Naya, now 29, had split from her then-boyfriend Ryan Dorsey, who she married in 2014 and now has a baby boy by called Josey Dorsey. Naya decided not tell Ryan about the pregnancy at the time, instead choosing to focus on her career. She explained:


“It was very scary to open up about everything. 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.”


However, Naya’s revelation led to her getting some negative comments, so she took to Twitter to respond:


The candid book also sees Naya open up about her battle with anorexia during her teens:


“By the time I was a sophomore, I started feeling that what had begun as a game had maybe gone too far. I just avoided food at all costs. If my mom had packed a lunch for me, I’d either trash it or find some excuse to give it away. I was so young and it just seemed to be the norm. Everyone was going through similar stuff. I had no way of knowing if I was going through it worse. I was juggling my feelings and it makes me sad that there are girls still going through that 15 years after I went through it.”




Naya’s book, which the publishers describe as a “warts and all account” of her life is due out on September 13.


Speaking on the upcoming book, Naya stated:


“I’ve done a lot of living – I’m a 79-year-old trapped in a 29-year-old’s body.”


We definitely praise Naya’s bravery about speaking up about these type of issues – what do you think?
