Naya Rivera is still being remembered by her fans weeks after her untimely demise.
And now, her sister, Nickayla Rivera, and ex-husband, Ryan Dorsey is making headlines amid claims that they have moved in together. Dorsey confirmed that the reports are true, but only because they are raising the son of Dorsey and Naya Rivera.
Tabloids are targeting Naya Rivera, her sister, Ryan Dorsey
Media Take Out was one of the first tabloids that ran the story about Nickayla and Dorsey. And they seemingly suggested that the two moved in together because they are having an affair.
According to Gossip Cop, the tabloid also claimed that Nickayla and Dorsey’s relationship was intimate.
Naya Rivera death has become controversial
The tabloid also published photos of Nickayla and Dorsey walking around as their so-called proof that they are dating. And shortly after the rumors made headlines, Nickayla became the new target of the online trolls.
Some of them have been accusing Rivera’s sister of getting rid of her so that she and Dorsey could be together.
“You should be ashamed of yourself now everyone thinking you killed her. There are so many guys in the world and you go for your sister’s ex a few months after she died this looks super suspicious,” one critic wrote on Instagram.
Another critic deliberately said that Nickayla killed her sister for Dorsey.
Ryan Dorsey addresses the rumors
Shortly after, Dorsey addressed the rumors via a video on his Instagram account.
“This is truly sad that this is the world that we live in. Where people were raised to think it’s ok to spew hatred in general, especially when…especially to make statements about a family who are dealing with a tragedy that I hope is so unimaginable that you or anyone that is close to you ever has to go through,” he said.
Dorsey also revealed that it is his son, Josey, 5, that asked if his aunt could live with them. After all, Nickayla is the closest thing that Josey has to a mom.
“Because you’re gonna need all the help you can get as a single parent. Trying to build a career and navigate this disaster with your child,” he said.
Dorsey also indirectly denied the claims that he’s dating the sister of Naya Rivera. He said that he hopes the only thing that he needs to worry about is his relationship status. However, there are more important things that he needs to deal with.
