There’s even more controversy surrounding “Glee” star Naya Rivera. Her future on the Fox show may be uncertain, and now Billboard reports that according to multiple sources, Columbia Records has dropped Rivera from the label.
Or maybe not: According to JustJared, Rivera’s rep denied the claim and released this statement: “The newest story claiming that Naya Rivera was dropped from her recording contract with Columbia Records is absolutely false … To be clear, any rumors or statements made as fact, that Naya Rivera was fired or let go from ‘Glee’ or dropped from her recording contract, are categorically false.”
HuffPost Entertainment contacted Rivera’s reps and Columbia Records but did not receive an immediate response.
The “Glee” star signed a deal with Columbia in 2011 and never released an LP. But she and her boyfriend at the time, Big Sean, debuted a single, “Sorry.” Since then, she and Big Sean got engaged and then broke up last month.
Rivera’s relationship with “Glee” has been murky after reports surfaced that she was fired from the show, following a disagreement with producers. E! learned that her character, Santana, had been written out of the season finale, but Rivera was not let go from the show completely.
