What's up with Naya Rivera and 'Glee'?

According to the Internet, Naya Rivera may or may not be done with "Glee."

Rumors have been circulating that the actress has been fired from the show and will be written off the series in this season's finale, but her rep says otherwise. (When CNN reached out to Fox about the reports the network declined to comment.)

On Tuesday the New York Daily News reported that Rivera had allegedly reached an impasse with producers and had been booted off the comedy. Meanwhile, E! Online cited sources who said the actress had been written out of the season finale, but it wasn't clear what will become of her future on "Glee."

Both outlets said that the scuttlebutt about a feud with "Glee" star Lea Michele causing the alleged casting shift isn't true.

Rivera herself hasn't spoken out about the gossip, but a rep seems to be talking for her. "Any reports or rumors circulating that Naya Rivera was let go or fired from Glee are absolutely untrue. End of story," the rep told The Hollywood Reporter.

Rivera's starred on "Glee" since its beginning in 2009 but hasn't regularly appeared in the show's current fifth season, and only time will tell if she'll take part in this season's closer. The fifth season finale is scheduled to air on May 13, with the sixth and final season expected to air in the fall.
