This should clear up Naya Rivera's "Glee" status. The actress was not fired from the Fox show, 20th Century Fox said in a statement. “There is no truth to the rumor Naya has been fired from the show," a spokesman said. "She remains under contract to 'Glee.'”

The rumors began when the New York Daily News ran a story saying Rivera was booted from the show after an altercation with Lea Michele. After reports began circling, Rivera's publicist denied the allegations and said, "Any reports or rumors circulating that Naya Rivera was let go or fired from 'Glee' are absolutely untrue. End of story." It's unclear if she'll appear in the final two episodes of the season, but reports claim she was written out of the finale.

Rivera's record deal with Columbia Records recently came under fire after Billboard reported that the label dropped her. Her rep denied these claims as well, calling them "absolutely false."

No matter what's going on, we now know we'll be seeing more of Santana Lopez.
