The 29-year-old actress dated Mark, 34, while they starred on Glee together, but she claims he dumped her after his publicist said their relationship wasn’t good for his public image. He was later charged with possession of child pornography.
“I can’t say I was totally shocked, but still – WTF?” Naya said about the charges (via People). “My son’s nanny actually told me about it when the story broke. Then I had no doubt that God really did have my back along the way.”
“When Mark dumped me, I thought it was the worst thing ever, but can you imagine if that didn’t happen? And I was laying there in bed when the battering ram came through the door?” Naya added. “I think everyone should have that one relationship where you look back and ask yourself, ‘What the hell was I thinking?’ You’ll learn something and you won’t regret it. Unless, of course, that relationship was with someone who had a sizable stash of child porn on his computer. Then, by all means, regret everything.”
