NBA Player Anthony Edwards Issues Apology After Woman Claims He Paid Her $100,000 To Get An Abortion: ‘Women Should Be Supported & Empowered To Make Their Own Decisions About Their Bodies’
NBA player Anthony Edwards is speaking out after an Instagram model claimed he pressured her to get an abortion.
