Years after their split, Naya Rivera claims she learned her ex-boyfriend, Mark Salling, was arrested on child pornography charges. But unlike his fans, the actress wasn't entirely surprised by the unspeakable accusations against her Glee costar.

In her new book, Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up, the 29-year-old recalls the moment she heard the story from her young son's nanny.

"I can't say I was totally shocked," she writes, "but still, WTF?"

"Then I had no doubt that God really did have my back along the way. When Mark dumped me, I thought it was the worst thing ever, but can you imagine if that didn't happen? And I was laying there in bed when the battering ram came through the door?"

She then goes on to advise readers to have a one crazy relationship.

"You'll learn something and you won't regret it," she continues. "Unless, of course, that relationship was with someone who had a sizable stash of child porn on his computer. Then, by all means, regret everything."

The wild three-year romance began on a marijuana and In-N-Out burger date, and heated up when he declared his love for her while high on Ecstasy just four weeks later, she reveals.

Drama soon ensued when the disgraced star refused to publicly acknowledge their relationship.

"His star was on the rise— at least to hear him tell it— and so he explained to me the deal: his publicist thought it would be better for his image if he pretended not to have a girlfriend," Rivera claims. "'If anyone asks,' he said, 'I'm single.'"

The couple began fighting constantly when she accused him of cheating, which he denied, she says.

After hearing from a cast member that he "f***ed" another girl while on a trip, Rivera decided to get revenge. She and a friend dumped dog food, soda, eggs and bird seed all over his car.

"He was still scheduled to be gone for a few more days, but by the time we were pulling away the feral cats had already started to come mewing out of the alley and were jumping up onto the car to eat the food," the now married mom writes.

The incident made it into the press, but the two publicly denied a feud with a funny social media photo.

"Oh, to be young and completely deranged," she sighs.

As Radar previously reported, Salling was indicted for possessing and receiving child pornography on his laptop in May after his initial arrest late last year.

He faces 20 years in prison.
