Contrary to reports, Big Sean’s ex-fiancé Naya Rivera was not dropped from her recording contract at Columbia Records – according her rep.
The Glee star signed with the label in 2011 and released the poor-performing single “Sorry,” featuring Big Sean last fall (September 2013), but sources told Billboard she was removed from the roster.
Slamming the report as being false, Naya’s rep told E! News: “The newest story claiming that Naya Rivera was dropped from her recording contract with Columbia Records is absolutely false," the rep said. "If the 'news' outlets who put out this story had bothered to contact anyone from her team they would have learned this was false.”
Naya’s rep also denied any claims that the singer-actress was fired from her role on Glee, claims made prior to her alleged label booting.
"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," the rep adds. "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."
Early last month, Big Sean confirmed that he called off his engagement with Naya, whom he met on Twitter.
"After careful thought and much consideration, Sean has made the difficult decision to call the wedding off," Sean’s rep tells Us magazine. "The recent rumors and accusations reported by so called or fake sources are simply untrue. Sean wishes Naya nothing but the best and it is still his hope that they can continue to work through their issues privately. We will not be commenting again on this matter."
Here’s hoping she didn’t get dropped from her label or fired from Glee, because getting dumped hurts enough!
