Naya Rivera has reportedly been fired from Glee.

The 27-year-old actress has reportedly been given the boot from the show after a blazing row with Fox's producers over her co-star Lea Michele's "diva antics" earlier this month, according to the New York Daily News newspaper.

Not only has the brunette beauty been axed from the musical show, it is also believed she's been "written out" of programme's fifth season finale, PopWrapped reports.

Rivera's future on the show was questioned when she reportedly stormed off set on April 15 after the Cannonball singer, whose boyfriend and on-screen love interest Cory Monteith tragically passed away last year, reportedly made the rest of the cast wait to shoot a scene as she dealt with personal matters.

However, it is believed the stars have been "icy" towards each other for a while.

An insider told Us Magazine at the time: "Naya is jealous that Lea is the show's main star. There is a lot of sighing and eye-rolling between them. They talk behind each other's backs a lot."

Meanwhile, Rivera, who plays sexy lesbian Santana on the hit show, has had a rough month after her fiance Big Sean called off their engagement and ended their relationship.

She later claimed the rapper had stolen an expensive Rolex watch from her home in Los Angeles because he is jealous of her success.

In a tweet which has now been removed, she wrote: "@BigSean stealing rolexes from a lady's house now. Maybe cuz I'm on Glee and making more money or something. #triflin' (sic)".
