Naya Rivera Talks Having An Abortion While on Glee

Naya Rivera had an abortion while on Glee, the actress opens up about that painful time in her upcoming book called ‘Sorry Not Sorry!”

According to Page Six:

Rivera didn’t tell her then-boyfriend Ryan Dorsey she was pregnant and underwent the procedure on a day off from filming the hit show.

Rivera and Dorsey, 33, eventually tied the knot in 2014. In 2015, they welcomed their now 11-month-old son, Josey.

But an unplanned pregnancy wasn’t Rivera’s only hurdle. She also recounts suffering from anorexia.

“By the time I was a sophomore, I started feeling that what had begun as a game had maybe gone too far,” she writes. “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.”

She recalls a time when she was so hungry, Rivera began to shake, so she decided to eat an apple. “I just sat there and held it up to my mouth,” she details. “It was like the two sides of my brain competing, one telling me to ‘eat it, it’s just an apple,’ and the other telling me, ‘no, no, no — that’ll ruin everything.’”
