Ryan Dorsey Speaks Out After Moving In With Naya Rivera's Sister Nickayla: 'She's The Closest Thing Josey Has To A Mom'

Ryan Dorsey has spoken out about the report that he has moved in with Nickalya Rivera, following the passing of his ex-wife Naya Rivera.

The 37-year-old actor spoke about the recent months where he has had to raise his and Naya‘s son, Josey, without her.

In his Instagram video, Ryan says that Josey has had “grow up so fast” and “without his mother”.

He also explained that Josey has been asking where his mother is, and he responds that Naya is “an angel now and she’s with God. She’s in heaven.”

“And he goes, ‘Well, I want to go there. How do I get there?’” Ryan goes on, adding that he hopes a parent would never have to hear their child say that or explain what a funeral for their parent is “way before they should have to think about it.”

Ryan then addressed the reasons he and Nickayla are now living together.

“Then he asked me if TiTi can live with us. ‘I want TiTi to live with us, forever.’ Because she’s now the closest thing that he has to a mom,” he explained. “Because you’re going to need all the help you can get as a single parent, trying to build your career and navigate this disaster with your child. You deal with it every hour of every day for 80-plus days now.”

“I wasn’t even going to speak on any of this, I feel like my head is full with so many things that the last thing I need running through my mind is this bulls**t,” he went on, saying that he doesn’t care what people think about the situation, because it’s “2020 and this is life. 2020, what a sh***y, f***ing year.”

Nickayla took to her own Instagram Story the night before, addressing the situation.
