‘Glee’ Stars, Kehlani, Bebe Rexha & More Mourn the Loss of Naya Rivera

Glee star Naya Rivera was declared dead on Monday (July 13), days after the actress went missing while boating in Lake Piru, California, with her 4-year-old son, Josey.

The sheriff’s tweeted earlier in the day that a body had been found. At a press conference, authorities said they were confident the body was Rivera’s and noted they did not suspect foul play nor suicide.

Following the devastating confirmation, a number of Rivera’s Glee co-stars took to social media to mourn the loss of their friend. Jane Lynch, who played coach Sue Sylvester in the Fox musical comedy, wrote, “Rest sweet, Naya. What a force you were. Love and peace to your family.”

Chris Colfer, who played Kurt Hummel, shared a heartfelt tribute alongside a smiling black-and-white photo of himself and Rivera. “Her brilliance and humor were unmatched,” he wrote. “Her beauty and talent were otherworldly. She spoke truth to power with poise and fearlessness. She could turn a bad day into a great day with a single remark. She inspired and uplifted people without even trying. Being close to her was both a badge of honor and a suit of armor. Naya was truly one of a kind, and she always will be.”

A number of other stars, including Bebe Rexha and Kehlani, also shared condolences on social media. See below.

Rest sweet, Naya. What a force you were. Love and peace to your family.

This is an absolute nightmare. I had the pleasure of having dinner with her once after a recording session we did together and she was an absolute sweetheart. My heart goes out to her family and friends. I hope I’m lucky enough to meet you up in heaven. Rest In Peace Naya Rivera
