Was Naya Rivera dropped from Columbia Records?
Billboard reported on Thursday that “multiple sources” confirmed the singer-actress was let go from the label. But in a statement furnished to Gossip Cop, Rivera’s rep says the claim is untrue.
Publicist Samantha Hill tells us:
“The newest story claiming that Naya Rivera was dropped from her recording contract with Columbia Records is absolutely false. If the ‘news’ outlets who put out this story had bothered to contact anyone from her team they would have learned this was 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. Someone obviously has an agenda to damage Naya’s good name and the media are failing at their duty to responsibly vet their sources and verify what is true and what is not. Naya’s attorneys are prepared to take any and all legal action to enforce and protect her rights.”
As Gossip Cop has reported, Rivera’s “Glee” future remains uncertain amid reports of on-set issues.
We’ll have updates.
