Hollywood actress Naya Rivera can finally breathe a sigh of relief following her removal from Columbia Records and called-off engagement to Big Sean after receiving some positive news about her status on TV show “Glee.”
Despite the growing speculation, reports claim the “Glee” star has not been fired from the hit series.
FOX has confirmed that Naya Rivera has NOT been fired from Glee. In a statement released to The Associated Press they are staying committed to the actress as RumorFix previously reported. It read: “There is no truth to the rumor Naya has been fired from the show – she remains under contract at Glee.” Her rep also confirmed she was not being fired following rumors of a spat with co-star Lea Michele.

Buzz about Rivera losing her full-time gig bubbled online last week.
Rumors of “major altercation” between Rivera and Michele on the “Glee” set surfaced earlier this month, but the New York Daily News reported this week that the rift was actually between Rivera and producers. E! Online is also reporting that Rivera, who has played the outspoken Santana Lopez since the show’s first season, has been written out of the script for the upcoming fifth-season finale — though allegedly not because of anything to do with Michele.

While details were scarce, reports revealed Rivera’s run with Columbia Records recently came to an end last week.
Naya Rivera is no longer on the Columbia Records roster, multiple sources have confirmed to Billboard. The “Glee” star signed with the label in 2011, and did not release a full-length with Columbia. The 27-year-old, who plays Santana Lopez on the hit Fox series, was one of the first “Glee” actors to land a solo record deal, and announced plans to begin work on an album in summer 2011.

Last year, Rivera’s ex-fiancé Big Sean gushed over hooking up with the “Glee” hottie for their “Sorry” collaboration.
“It’s a fresh song, right? It’s like a ladies’ anthem,” Sean said in an interview. “She’s like a great musician. Obviously, everybody knows she can sing real good, so I really don’t know anything too much about singing like that. I just know what I know about music and what she knows about music and when we combine them we help each other out, so it’s cool.” (MTV)
