Despite reports, Naya Rivera is not leaving Glee, it has been 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 a similar one her rep released, shooting down the rumors that claimed Naya was let go after an alleged on-set altercation with her co-star Lea Michele.
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 told the site. “I don’t know where these stories are coming from, but they are not true.”
There were also recent reports that Naya had been dropped by Columbia Records, which her rep has also denied.
