A day after finding himself in trouble for allegedly pressuring Instagram model Paige Jordae to get an abortion, Anthony Edwards issued a statement regarding the controversial allegations. “I made comments in the heat of a moment that are not me, and that are not aligned with what I believe and who I want to be as a man. All women should be supported and empowered to make their own decisions about their bodies and what is best for them. I am handling my personal matters privately and will not be commenting on them any further at this time.” Edwards wrote on X.
