Fox Confirms That Naya Rivera Has NOT Been Fired from 'Glee'

Great news for Santana fans – Naya Rivera is not leaving Glee, Fox has confirmed.

“There is no truth to the rumor Naya has been fired from the show,” Fox said in a statement to The Associated Press. “She remains under contract to Glee.”

The network’s statement follows one from her rep, shooting down the rumors that Naya was let go after an alleged on-set spat with her co-star Lea Michele.

While she might be back for the next and last season, E! News confirmed that Naya was indeed written out of the season five finale airing on May 13.

“[Naya] isn’t fired and her not being in the finale has nothing to do with Lea,” a source told the site. “I don’t know where these stories are coming from, but they are not true.”

Naya‘s rep has also denied recent reports that Naya was dropped from Columbia Records.

    @Yay: 100%

  • Ally

    I knew she wasn’t fired. Didn’t need Fox conformation.

  • Liz

    Why did they write her out of the episode? you know what I don’t care. I don’t care for Glee anymore. Naya should pursue other options.

  • LoveNay

    Glee or no Glee, Naya is bae.

  • Gia

    I’m happy. I love Santana!

  • Lalth

    who cares?

  • Sass

    Good news. It would be difficult to watch without Santana like the 3 episodes she missed.

  • just sayin

    She is better off leaving. Save your career while you can Naya.

  • Yes

    She is one of 3 female main character left and there is are too many boys. I’m a guy and girls are my type so yeah, I am very happy she is staying.

    @Warren: same although I do like Mercedes too. Everyone else either annoy me or I don’t care for them.

  • Alice

    @Liz: Obviously something happened. But regardless of what it was, why would they fire someone with only one episode to go and contracts are over for Season 5. I think she had already recorded one song and couple of scenes, so she fulfilled her obligations for the finale. They just are not going to be shown and she didn’t film anymore. I think she took that break-up pretty hard – at least based on her tweet it seemed that way. People can understand that can be hard especially when it is so public. I wish her well either way.
