Former Glee Star Reveals She had an Abortion While on Show

By: Jon Corrigan

In a soon-to-be published memoir, Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up, former Glee star Naya Rivera reveals she got an abortion in late 2010.

The actress, 29, discovered she was pregnant soon-after breaking up with actor Ryan Dorsey, whom she later married in 2014 and is now the father of her 11-month-old son, Josey Dorsey.

Rivera terminated the pregnancy during a day off from filming an episode of Glee, choosing, at the time, not to share the news with Ryan, and wanting to focus on her career.

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

After the abortion was made public, she took to Twitter on Tuesday to address a stream of backlash.
