Naya Rivera Dropped From Columbia Records
Naya Rivera’s publicist Samantha Hill has issued a statement regarding the singer’s reported departure from Columbia Records. Hill states that Rivera has not parted ways with the record label. Read the official statement: “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.”
Naya Rivera hasn’t been doing so hot these past few weeks. April saw her engagement with Big Sean come to an end and her future in the hit show ‘Glee’ come into question with her reported firing. May has just started, and the month is already looking bad for her.
Billboard reports that the actress-turned-singer has been dropped from Columbia Records after becoming the first star from ‘Glee’ to earn a solo recording contract.
Rivera has been preparing her debut album after signing to the label in 2011. She’s only released one single, ‘Sorry‘ with Big Sean. Even though the song was well-publicized and had the star guest as Sean, Rivera’s debut track ultimately flopped and didn’t chart on the Billboard Hot 100.
Her reps have remained mum throughout her consistent setbacks, and this one is no different.
