Naya Rivera Fired From 'Glee'?
Has Santana belted out her last tune for “Glee”?
A report surfaced this week from The New York Daily News, claiming that Naya Rivera had been fired from the Fox musical series, and would not return for the show’s upcoming final season, following an alleged feud with producers and “Glee” leading lady Lea Michele.
However, on Wednesday, a rep for Naya shot down the report.
“Any reports or rumors circulating that Naya Rivera was let go or fired from ‘Glee’ are absolutely untrue. End of story,” a rep for the actress told The Hollywood Reporter.
A Fox spokesperson was not immediately available for comment when contacted by Access Hollywood on Wednesday morning.
Reports of on-set drama between Naya and Lea first sprung up earlier this month, when Us Weekly reported the co-stars got into a “major altercation” on the set.
Back in October, Access Hollywood caught up with Naya to talk about “Glee” coming to an end after the upcoming sixth season.
“I think we’ve had a really good run on the show,” the actress told Access Hollywood at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women in Hollywood celebration in October 2013. “I think that all good things must come to an end, so whenever that comes to an end, I’ll just be grateful that I was even on it.”
Naya made headlines off-screen earlier this month, when a rep for her then-fiance Big Sean announced the rapper was calling off his engagement to the actress.
