Naya Rivera 'No Longer A Glee Regular'
But Santana won't be leaving the hit show entirely...
E! News reports that the 27-year-old star will not be returning to the Fox show as a series regular for its sixth and final season.
But the site reports: "Rivera will, however, return on a recurring basis, for an undisclosed number of episodes.
"Glee insiders confirm that the reduced status came at Rivera's request, and the producers and network obliged in order to keep her happy."
And despite recent rumours of a bust-up with Lea Michele and Rivera being "fired", a source told E! that the move had nothing to do with that.
"Naya wants to have more time to explore her music and other endeavours," the mole said.
Glee is taking a break and returning to finish up in 2015.
