LOS ANGELES -- Naya Rivera is still a Gleek.
"There is no truth to the rumour Naya has been fired from the show," the Fox TV network noted in a statement released to The Associated Press on Saturday night, which concluded, "She remains under contract to Glee."
Rivera plays Santana Lopez, a lesbian glee club member, on the popular musical drama.
Before Glee actress Lea Michele arrived Saturday morning at the première of her latest film, the animated Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return, a publicist for Michele said her client would not comment on co-star Rivera, the subject of numerous rumours and reports over the last week.
But Michele did reveal Glee had a fifth-season wrap gathering Friday night.
It's been a difficult year for the series' cast and crew in the wake of the July 2013 overdose death of Canadian actor Cory Monteith, who had been romantically linked to Michele.
"I have to say, I owe so much to the cast of Glee," Michele said. "Loss is a horrendous thing...
"Every day, going to work and knowing that I had this safety net underneath me, has gotten me to where I am right now. So, I'm beyond grateful for Glee."
The show's fifth-season finale is set to air May 13. Show co-creator Ryan Murphy has said the series' sixth season will be its last.
