Naya Rivera Steps Out Solo Amid Rumors She’s Been Fired From Glee
The rumor mill’s been churning overtime the last few weeks with reports that Naya Rivera’s been fired from Glee and written out of the Season 5 finale. The drama first started back on April 17 when TMZ speculated that Naya had been booted from the set following a confrontation with co-star Lea Michele.
Though Glee producers have yet to comment on the stories, the co-founder ofPopWrapped claims to have gotten confirmation on the rumors. Following an initial announcement on April 28, Zachary Jaydon took to Twitter to reveal further details.
“Sources close to #Glee’s production have CONFIRMED to me that Naya Rivera is ‘not slated to be a part of Season 6 in any way,’” he wrote on April 29, adding that “sources are also telling me that Naya’s trailer has already been COMPLETELY emptied, & that her pass to get on the Paramount Lot revoked.”
Despite the troubling stories, Naya’s not attempting to keep a low profile. The actress was photographed getting coffee and chatting on her cell during an outing in Los Angeles on April 29. (Talking to her PR rep, we have to assume?) Earlier in the day, she took to Twitter to rave about tonight’s episode, writing, “SO excited to watch Glee tonight! #doowop #shirleymaclaine #fancy.”
We certainly don’t want to believe the rumors, but it’s becoming increasingly hard not to. Then again, we won’t believe anything unless it comes from the mouth of Naya herself!
What do you think about these rumors? Would you still watch Glee without Naya Rivera?
