Paul Mescal’s girlfriend and singer Phoebe Bridgers has revealed she had an abortion last October, as she put her support behind the American legal case Roe v. Wade, which is currently in the process of being overturned.
The American songwriter, who is reportedly engaged to the Normal People actor, made the brave decision to share her story as she took to her Instagram stories on Tuesday 3 May.
Writing on a beautiful snap of a beach sunset, the 27 year old shared: “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,” the singer went on. “Everyone deserves that kind of access.”

The star then shared a link to a list of places her followers could donate to if they wish.
It comes following reports earlier in the day that the US Supreme Court could potentially overturn the legal right to terminate unwanted pregnancies, which was previously ruled across the United States.
Last week, Phoebe and Paul, 26, sparked engagement rumours following an appearance at the famous Coachella music festival in California.
Joined by the latter’s Normal People co-star and friend Daisy Edgar-Jones, The Sun claimed Phoebe was heard referring to Paul as her “fiancé”.
Since then, the loved-up couple have made headlines once more when they appeared at the 2022 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Wearing a stunning silver sequinned dress inspired by the Gilded Age, Phoebe looked incredible as she took to the red carpet with her actor beau in tow.
The pair were first linked back in 2020 when the singer first shared her appreciation of Paul and his instant-hit TV series on her social media.
Engaging in a flirtation, the duo then made their budding romance public when they took to the red carpet at the 2021 Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Film Gala together.

After that, the loved-up couple became Instagram official when Phoebe shared an adorable selfie cuddled up to her Irish boyfriend during a rainy day in the UK.
While Paul has come off Instagram in recent months, he has publicly admitted he “doesn’t know where he’d be” without Phoebe.
“To have someone to lean on through such a mad, mad time has been invaluable,” the star said.
“Really, I don’t know where I’d be without her,” the actor added.
