Naya Rivera booted from 'Glee' after feuding with producers, rift with Lea Michele

Rumors of an icy relationship between the two actresses surfaced earlier this month, but Rivera's apparent anger with producers has led to her dismissal from the show.



There's only room for one "Glee" diva, and apparently it's Lea Michele.

Naya Rivera has been fired from the FOX series days after an initial report of an on-set feud involving the actresses surfaced, sources close to production confirm to the Daily News.

Rumors of a rift between the actresses began to swirl earlier this month, with a "major altercation" coming to head on set April 15, Us Weekly reported.

But it appears Rivera's disagreement that day was with producers, and Michele's name was caught in the crossfire.

"She went off," a source told The News about the on-set spat. "But it had nothing to do with Lea."

It was reported that Rivera was "jealous" of the attention on her Broadway-trained costar. Now it appears producers have had it.

Rivera has been "written out" of the season 5 finale, and will not return for the next season, according to PopWrapped.

"One costar would not have any power in whether another returns to the show," the production insider told The News, dismissing rumors that Michele had a say in the matter.

Aside from "Glee," both women have endured hardships in their personal lives — with Michele, 27, recovering from the death of her boyfriend and fellow "Glee" actor Cory Monteith, and Rivera ending her engagement to rapper Big Sean earlier this month.
