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.
