According to People, Naya Rivera’s son, Josey, “will receive just compensation for having to endure the drowning of his beloved mother at Lake Piru.”
“Though the tragic loss of Josey’s mother can never truly be overcome, we are very pleased that the monetary settlement will significantly assist Josey with his life beyond this tragedy,” said Amjad M. Khan, the family’s lawyer.
Last year, Rivera’s father, George Rivera, spoke with Entertainment Tonight about how the family, especially Rivera’s sister, Nickayla, has been helping Dorsey take care of Josey, who is 6, as of this writing. Dorsey and Rivera were married from 2014 to 2018.
“He’s growing up and handling it really well,” George said, discussing how the family is coping after the star’s tragic death.
Rivera is known best for portraying Santana Lopez on “Glee” and also worked on series like “The Bernie Mac Show” and “Devious Maids.” She was 33 when she died.
