Naya Rivera has been having a rough 2014.

First the actress ended her engagement with rapper Big Sean following allegations that he’d cheated on her, now it appears she’s been fired from the show that made her famous. 

Naya Rivera Fired From Glee?

Rumors of a feud between Naya and Lea Michele  began to circulate earlier this month when it was reported that the co-stars became so upset with one another that they both stormed off set.

Now, Glee producers have apparently decided that the off-screen drama was more than they could handle and they’ve reportedly fired Naya effective immediately. 

The New York Daily News reports that Rivera has been "written off" the show and her character will not appear in the remaining episodes of season five or any of the show’s upcoming final season.


Details are scarce as to what was the final straw for producers, but sources close to the show say Naya was "jealous" of the attention that Lea received from cast and crew. 

Producers have specified that they did not make their decision as a result of a request or demand from Michele. 

"One co-star would not have any power over whether another returns to the show," said one executive.
