A representative for NAYA RIVERA has denied reports suggesting the GLEE star has been dropped from her record label and threatened legal action over the false allegations.
The singer/actress hit headlines on Thursday (01May14) after insiders told Billboard.com that she was no longer on the Columbia Records roster following the poor commercial performance of her debut single Sorry, which was released in September (13) and featured her then-boyfriend Big Sean. The track failed to chart in America.
However, her publicist has shot down the claims and blamed an unknown source for attempting to destroy Rivera's career following other rumors alleging she has also been axed from her hit TV show Glee after an on-set fall out with co-star Lea Michele.
A stern statement released by her representative reads: "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."
The press release continues: "Naya's attorneys are prepared to take any and all legal action to enforce and protect her rights."
The last few weeks have been tough for Rivera - she split from her rapper fiance Big Sean in early April (14), six months after becoming engaged.
