Naya Rivera

Naya RiveraNaya Rivera will open up about her decision to get an abortion and struggle with anorexia for the first time in her upcoming memoir.

In her memoir, titled Sorry Not Sorry, the former Glee star says she found out she was pregnant by her ex-boyfriend Ryan Dorsey in late 2010 and decided to terminate the pregnancy so she could focus on her career.

“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,” she said.

Rivera revealed that, after her parents began having marital trouble, she developed anorexia.

“I was so young and it just seemed to be the norm. Everyone was going through similar stuff. I had no way of knowing I was going through it worse.”

Rivera married Dorsey in 2014 and gave birth to a son, Josey, in 2015.

She wants him to read her memoir.

“I hope it gives him a better perspective on the issues women face,” she said.
