Fox has come out and issued a statement that clears up Naya Rivera’s status on Glee. 

Sort of.

With Internet chatter claiming Rivera has been let go from the Fox comedy (allegedly due to a beef with Lea Michele), the network said on Saturday that “there is no truth to the rumor Naya has been fired from the show. She remains under contract to Glee.”

Still, this statement doesn’t address talk that the actress was written out of the Glee Season 5 finale, which airs on Tuesday, May 13; or whether she’ll appear on Glee Season 6.

Not that Rivera seems too perturbed by her television future. She posted these bikini photos on Instagram over the weekend:

It’s been a rough few weeks for Rivera overall, not even counting discussion over her role as Santana Lopez.


She and Big Sean called off their engagement in early April, with some saying the rapper cheated on the beauty and Rivera seemingly accusing Big Sean of theft.

There’s also been talk that Rivera has been dropped by Columbia Records, which would cast a pall over both her acting and her singing future.

But, again, we direct you to the photos above.

The star seems pretty relaxed these days, doesn’t she? And if everything else falls through, she can clearly earn a paycheck as a bikini model.
