Los Angeles: Singer Nicki Minaj says her abortion is the "hardest thing" she's gone through.
The 32-year-old has opened up about the abortion she had when she was a teenager and was still at school admitting that it was a decision that has "haunted" her throughout her life, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"I thought I was going to die. I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I'd ever gone through," the Rolling Stone magazine quoted Minaj as saying.
Nicki moved from Trinidad and Tobago to New York as a child and went on to study at the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Arts. It was while she was studying at the school that she fell pregnant and the father was older boy from Queens she was dating.
The "Anaconda" hitmaker knew at the time she couldn't go ahead with the pregnancy because she wasn't in a position to care for a baby properly.
She added: "It'd be contradictory if I said I wasn't pro-choice. I wasn't ready. I didn't have anything to offer a child."
