Nicki Minaj has opened up about having an abortion as a teenager.
Speaking about her decision in an interview with Rolling Stone, the rapper said: “I thought I was going to die.”
“I was a teenager,” she explained. “It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through.”
Minaj, 32, fell pregnant while still at high school and said that while she “wasn’t ready” to have a baby, her decision to have an abortion has “haunted me all my life”.
“It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice,” she said before adding: “I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child.”
