Naya Rivera Denies Getting Fired From 'Glee' Following Lea Michele Fight

Plenty of conflicting reports are coming through concerning Naya Rivera’s alleged termination from Fox’s hit musical series Glee. The actress has supposedly ‘been written out of Glee’s fifth season finale’, when she had originally been set to star in the episode, titled ‘The Rachel Berry Project.’  Rachel Berry is the character played by Lea Michele in the show.

The news comes not long after Rivera was said to have been involved in an onset feud with her Glee co-star. Rivera is said to be jealous of Michele, who is unofficially recognised as the star of the show. Perhaps the title of the show's finale was just one step too far for Rivera?

Rivalry has allegedly been increasing ever since the April 15 bust-up between the two girls, when Rivera was said to have stormed off the set, following an argument with Glee producers over Lea Michele’s diva-ish behaviour. The fight came just days after Rivera ended her engagement with rapper Big Sean.

Zachary Jaydon, owner of celebrity gossip site PopWrapped, reported, “Sources close to #Glee’s production have CONFIRMED to me, that as of now, Naya Rivera has been relieved from her duties as Santana Lopez.” Jaydon followed up his tweet with further information regarding Rivera’s alleged departure from the show.




However, USA Today reports that a representative for Naya Rivera has denied the rumors that she has been fired from Glee. Rivera’s rep told The Hollywood Reporter, “Any reports of rumours circulating that Naya Rivera was let go or fired from Glee are absolutely untrue. End of story.”

There’s no smoke without fire and something has certainly gone down on the set of Glee. The relationship between Rivera and Michele does seem to be at the heart of whatever is going on. A source recently told US Weekly, “They’re always icy to each other. Naya is jealous that Lea is the show’s main star. There is a lot of sighing and eye-rolling between them. They talk behind each other’s backs - a lot.”

Michele recently assured UK’s We Love Pop that rumours of her diva-ish antics are untrue, “I am a very outspoken person, and if something makes me uncomfortable, you will know it. I can assure that [diva rumours] aren’t real. It’s super frustrating sometimes.”

Both Michele and Rivera have had tough years with love, while Rivera split from her fiance, Michele lost her boyfriend and fellow Glee star Cory Monteith to a heroin overdose. It sounds like the two should quit bickering and start helping one another instead.
