Los Angeles  - Naya Rivera is not leaving Glee.

The 27-year-old actress' representative has slammed claims she has been axed from the hit musical drama after a blazing row with producers over her co-star Lea Michele's "diva antics" earlier this month, insisting she will continue in her role as lesbian Santana Lopez.

Her spokesperson said: "Any reports or rumours circulating that Naya Rivera was let go or fired from Glee are absolutely untrue. End of story."

A spokesperson for the show's producers 20th Century Fox Television declined to comment on Naya's future with the show.

However, insiders told the Hollywood Reporter that claims the actress has received warning letters from the studio to change are untrue, as are reports she has been banned from the set.

Naya's future on the show was questioned when she reportedly stormed off set on 15 April after Cannonball singer Lea, 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 two stars have been "icy" towards each other for a while.

An insider previously said: "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."
