No, Naya Rivera's not leaving Glee after all. 

Just weeks after her engagement to Big Sean ended, the 27-year-old actress reportedly found herself in hot water with the show's producers over her behavior on set. 

However, despite rumors of a nasty fight with co-star Lea Michele, Rivera's team says the actress remains gainfully employed by FOX. 

"Rumors that Naya was let go or fired are false," her representative told PeopleHer team hasn't, however, commented on claims that Rivera, who plays Santana, will be written out of the season five finale and won't return for the sixth season. 

Rivera's still excited to be a part of the Glee family. After the hashtag #NoNayaNoGlee began trending on Twitter, Rivera posted, "SO excited to watch Glee tonight! #doowop #shirleymaclaine #fancy"

Our suggestion? Just sing it out, Naya and Lea!
