Naya Rivera Opens Up About Her Abortion & Battle with Anorexia

Naya Rivera is bravely opening up about two big parts of her past – an abortion she had while filming Glee and her battle with anorexia as a teen.

The 29-year-old actress talks about her life and struggles in her new memoir titled “Sorry Not Sorry,” which will be released on September 13.

Naya says she became pregnant with now husband Ryan Dorsey‘s child in late 2010 and she found out about the pregnancy just weeks after they broke up. She didn’t tell him at the time, but she aborted the child during her one day off from filming Glee.

“It was very scary to open up about it,” Naya told People. “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.”

Naya and Ryan are now the parents of an 11-month-old son named Josey, who she opes will read the book 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.

In the book, Naya also opens up about battling anorexia as a teen. Read that excerpt on People.com.
