Nicki Minaj has opened up about a life-changing event from from her teenage years.
In her cover story for the new issue of Rolling Stone, the “Anaconda” rapper discussed getting pregnant while enrolled at LaGuardia High School of Music & Performing Arts in New York City and making the choice to end the pregnancy.
The rapper revealed she got pregnant from her relationship with an older man who is described as her “first love.” When she found out she was expecting, she recalled her reaction as, “I thought I was going to die.”
“I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through,” Minaj added.
She also admitted that her decision to have an abortion has “haunted me all my life.” But she doesn’t regret the choice she made, because she feels it was the right one for her at the time.
