'Multiple Sources' Confirming Naya Rivera Fired from GLEE
US Magazine is reporting that "multiple sources" have confirmed the news that actress Naya Rivera has been fired from the FOX musical dramedy series Glee and that her contract for the upcoming sixth season has not been renewed.
This report is contrary to a statement made by Rivera's rep yesterday which maintained that reports of Rivera's firing were "absolutely untrue." Representatives for FOX have not commented on any of the stories, including a report that Rivera's character, Santana, had been written out of the fifth season finale and has been noticeably absent from recent promos for the show.
Earlier in April Us reported that the actress had been complaining to show runners that co-star Lea Michele's tardiness had held up shooting on the show. However many sites have been reporting that Michele, who portrays Rachel Berry on the series, had little to do with Rivera's departure.
