Naya Rivera Has Not Been Fired from 'Glee', Her Rep Confirms

Naya Rivera has not been fired from Glee, despite some reports floating around today that suggest otherwise.

“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 27-year-old actress told in a statement.

Rumors were swirling that Naya and Lea Michele are in a feud and that the former was fired following an alleged on-set altercation earlier this month.

While she hasn’t been fired from the show, E! News confirmed that Naya was 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 who works on the show said. “I don’t know where these stories are coming from, but they are not true.”

    Of course they’re not going to say she got fired. They don’t want to cause any drama – they’ll let her go out with dignity & have her reputation intact and in turn, she’ll leave and not badmouth them. That’s how it always work. Don’t be so naive, people

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, it works if you try enough!!! Also look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

    These 4 links show that it is obvious that Asians can read minds!!!!!

  • Jessica

    @Michelle: I can’t believe someone actually believed that rumor. smh

  • JJ

    So happy she’s staying!

  • ladyb

    She’s gone – She just doesnt know it yet – Why would they not put her in a finale?

  • Nameless

    I didn’t believe it anyway.

  • Martha Willington

    I love her!

  • Crystal

    Still doesn’t explain why she isn’t in the finale.

  • But

    Yeah so why was she cut from the episode?


    I never really liked the Santana character. I have no idea what kind of person the actress is in real life so I won’t judge Naya Rivera.

  • GOOD!

    She needs to stay until the end. She is one of the originals.

  • Seriously

    @Thanks: GTFO

  • Celebrity measurements
  • True

    She had a blowout with Hooknose.

  • Lisa

    Glee is past it’s sell date. just cancel this awful show now.

  • offtheproperty

    So her relationship with that low-life rapper worked out well for her not?
    If only she were courageous enough and honest enough to tell us all about it. Now that would be an inspiration and life lesson for all girls.

  • LOL

    “…End of Story” they mean business lol

  • LOL

    “…end of story” they mean business. No messing around.

  • Classy

    I wonder how that idiot at popcrush feels now that everyone is calling him out on his bullshit.

  • Shay

    I love her and Santana but she would be better off not spending 16hours a day filming Glee just to not get a any decent materials.

  • Shay

    ugh comments not showing!

  • kayla

    The rumors were started by TMZ so i never believed them.

  • anonymous

    I refuse to watch Glee live since season 4. I watch her scenes on tumblr away.

  • LOL

    What was her rep supposed to say to the public? The truth that she indeed got fired. You are forgetting this is Hollywood, the city of make believe. Of course in public and to the media her rep has to take care of her client, she has to lie, she be risking her job. if she wont lie. Those things are natural in Hollyweird world You have to pretend and lie for the sake of your career and the career of the celeb in question
