Vanessa Williams - Vanessa Williams Had High School Abortion
Actress/singer Vanessa Williams has revealed she had an abortion in high school.
The Desperate Housewives star opened up about her childhood struggles in new memoir You Have No Idea and recently admitting she was molested by a family friend at the age of 10.
And now the Colors of the Wind hitmaker has dropped another bombshell - she fell pregnant as a teenager and terminated the unborn child without her mother Helen's knowledge, because she didn't feel ready to be a parent.
In an interview with U.S. news show Nightline, she says, "Being pregnant is the most frightening thing that happens in your life. I knew in high school that's something that I was not prepared to do or fight or struggle with."
The 49 year old now has four kids - three from her first marriage to former manager Ramon Harvey II and one child with ex-husband and basketball star Rick Fox.
