Amber Riley - Amber Riley Brushes Off Glee Departure Reports

Actress Amber Riley has played down reports she is leaving Glee for good, insisting her tweet on the subject was "misconstrued".
The 26 year old, who plays Mercedes Jones on the musical series, was rumoured to be bidding farewell to the show at the end of the current third season as her character graduates from school - and she fuelled the gossip with a post on her page on Wednesday (09May12).
She told fans, "That's a wrap on Amber Riley! Just closed a chapter in my life. I'm going to miss the whole Glee family, seeing them every day! I have so many brothers and sisters now. But I am looking forward to a much needed and deserved summer vacation! School's Out Glee Kids! Let's play!"
However, Riley returned to the microblogging site on Thursday (10May12) to address the speculation about her future on the show.
In a series of posts, she writes, "My tweet apparently has been misconstrued. I was not confirming I was leaving the show. Just stating that I would miss being in the classroom every day with the cast and that would be changing.
"Thanks for the support guys. That's the good and bad thing about Twitter. It can be used to extinguish rumours but it also spreads them like wildfire!"
