Naya Rivera's rep: 'Someone's trying to damage her good name'

'Glee' beauty Naya Rivera has been hit with strange rumours this week after it was first reported that she had been fired from the hit musical U.S. drama series and speculation has now surfaced that suggests she has also been dropped by her record label, Columbia. 

A representative for the stunning actress has now issued a statement on the past week's turbulent reports, which reads: "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.”

The statement concluded: "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."

Rivera, meanwhile, has brushed off the negativity by posting a message to her Twitter followers that admits she's excited for the next few months and what she has lined up: "It's gunna be a good summer!"
