American singer Phoebe Bridgers has revealed that she had an abortion while on tour last year.
The 27-year-old California-born and bred artist revealed this after the Supreme Court’s drafted opinion to overturn abortion rights leaked online Monday night, May 2.
“I had an abortion in October of last year while I was on tour.
“I went to planned parenthood where they gave me the abortion pill. It was easy.
“Everyone deserves that kind of access.”
She concluded with a link to an article from The Cut that listed abortion funds to which people can donate.
Bridgers did not disclose with whom she was expecting a child. However, in December 2021, she confirmed her relationship with Irish actor Paul Mescal. The “Kyoto” singer simply posted a selfie of her and Mescal leaning in to kiss her cheek.
Although this was the first time the couple announced they were dating on social media, they made their red carpet debut at the 2021 LACMA Art+Film Gala in November 2021.
Bridgers and Mescal, 26, first sparked dating rumors after reportedly spending a romantic vacation together in London in August 2020.
