With talk swirling that Naya Rivera has been fired from Glee (possibly due to an on-set clash with Lea Michele) Fox has come out with a statement that addresses this rumor.
And shoots it down completely.
"There is no truth to the rumor Naya has been fired from the show. She remains under contract to Glee," the network said on Saturday.
However, this statement does not confirm whether or not Santana will be a part of the Glee Season 5 finale, as previous reports said a duet with Mercedes had been scrapped.
Rivera has portrayed the sassy Santana Lopez since the first season of this Fox comedy, with her role only increasing over the years.
But creator Ryan Murphy has already said Glee Season 6 will feature a time jump, a move away from New York and a concentration on a few core cast members.
So it's very possible Rivera will not play a key role on the show's final season regardless of these rumors and whether any aspect of them is accurate.
