Naya Rivera Fired From “Glee” After Fight With Cast Member Lea Michele
I love me some Ms. Rivera but she has been going through it lately after losing her boo Big Sean, now she lost her job as a cast member on Glee. Sad face. Surely, her career isn’t over though.
According to NY Daily News reports:
Naya Rivera has been fired from the FOX series days after an initial report of an on-set feud involving the actresses surfaced, sources close to production confirm to the Daily News.
Rumors of a rift between the actresses began to swirl earlier this month, with a “major altercation” coming to head on set April 15, Us Weekly reported.
But it appears Rivera’s disagreement that day was with producers, and Michele’s name was caught in the crossfire.
“She went off,” a source told The News about the on-set spat. “But it had nothing to do with Lea.”
It was reported that Rivera was “jealous” of the attention on her Broadway-trained costar. Now it appears producers have had it.
Rivera has been “written out” of the season 5 finale, and will not return for the next season, according to PopWrapped.
“One costar would not have any power in whether another returns to the show,” the production insider told The News, dismissing rumors that Michele had a say in the matter.
