G.O.O.D. Music’s Big Sean has stepped forward to confirm buzz and speculation over his relationship with Hollywood actress Naya Rivera after they appeared together as a couple last week.
According to Sean, he recently broke up with his last girlfriend and is now going steady with Rivera.
“I had no idea it was going to be like that,” Sean said when asked about his reaction to his relationship status going public. “It’s funny because Naya, I’ve been dating her for a little while — I guess that [42 movie premiere] event was one of the first big events that came up while I was dating her. We was like, ‘Let’s go to it,’ because we both wanted to go. And you know, I’m kind of a private person, she’s a private person and the thing is I had a girlfriend too before that who I’ve been with [for a long time]. I’ve always been in a relationship since I was about 18 or 19, [that’s] when I got with her. Things didn’t work out but not ’cause of all this — sometimes when you’re with someone, you’re 18 and you grow up, and it was long distance too, she lived in New York and I lived in LA, it was just, like, you grow apart as people. … As far as Naya, it’s something new. … Naya is very cool. Our relationship is cool. Yeah, she’s tight.” (The Urban Informer)
Last week, Sean and Rivera heated up the blogosphere after attending the new 42 movie premiere in Hollywood.
Apparently hip-hop and show tunes make a sweet, sweet harmony. It’s official! Rapper Big Sean and Glee star Naya Rivera stepped out for the first time as a couple on Tuesday. The pair marked their public debut by attending the premiere of new film 42 at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. And they make one helluvan attractive couple! With one arm slung around his GF, Sean kept it sharp in an all-black-everything ensemble, while Naya also took the monochromatic note, rocking a gray snakeskin-look slinky dress and white pointed heels.

Recent reports claim speculation started to build up a few weeks ago when Naya attended Sean’s 25th birthday party.
The “My Last” rapper had fun with his new girlfriend on the carpet and struck a couple of silly poses. The twosome were rumored to be dating late last month, after Rivera attended Big Sean’s surprise birthday party and exchanged a few flirty messages on Twitter, the Daily Mail reports. (Us Magazine)
Rivera has reportedly sparked a strong following of lady fans from her run on Fox’s “Glee.”
The actress kept her game face on for the photogs with smoldering looks and grins but Sean playfully joked by making funny faces and posing behind Rivera. While the sultry Latina has a man on her arm in real life, she’s quite the ladies lady on-screen as her “Glee” character, Santana Lopez, has had a few same-sex run ins with Brittany Pierce and Quinn Fabray. These on-screen romances have undeniably created a lesbian fanbase for Rivera who told “The Late Late Show’s” Craig Ferguson, “I have a lot of lovely ladies who love me, so I’m pretty excited about that.” (New York Daily News)
