Naya Rivera will no longer be a part of Glee‘s Season 5 finale, and her future with the Fox series at large is in flux, according to multiple reports.
New York’s Daily News on Tuesday reported that Rivera had been fired from the series after she “went off” on producers about her multiple grievances, including co-star Lea Michele. E! Online echoes a report by PopWrapped, that Rivera has been written out from the Season 5 finale entirely.
Rivera’s rep denies she was let go from the series, saying in a statement, “Any reports or rumors circulating that Naya Rivera was let go or fired from Glee are absolutely untrue. End of story.”
Earlier this month, TMZ had reported that Rivera became so tired of Michele’s “diva” antics — including Michele reportedly making her castmates wait to film while she dealt with a personal matter — that she complained to producers. It was at this time that the “fired” rumors first began swirling.
Despite all these rumblings, both actresses are maintaining their cool on Twitter: Rivera is urging her fans to watch the show, while Michele has been sharing anecdotes from the set of the season finale, which airs May 13.
