Naya Rivera was a talented singer, actress, and a writer, best known as Santana on “Glee.” Rivera and Sean dated for six months before deciding to get engaged in October 2013. It was a high-profile relationship because that they got together at the height of Glee’s popularity (via Vulture).
However, their engagement would last only three months, as cheating allegations drove their romance to a point of no return. Their breakup was pretty messy too, with both parties taking shots at each other on social media, writes Affair Post. Rivera accused Sean of cheating on her with Ariana Grande. She also accused him of stealing a Rolex from her home. In her autobiography, “Sorry Not Sorry,” Rivera wrote about finding Grande in Sean’s home on a day the rapper refused to see her. “Guess what, little girl is sitting cross legged on the couch, listening to music? … it rhymes with Smariana Schmande” Rivera wrote (via Teen Vogue).
Sean denied the cheating allegations, and squarely denied all allegations of theft (via CNN). He insisted that he canceled the engagement because Rivera was jealous and controlling, threatening the rapper with comments, such as “If you don’t listen to what I say, I’ll ruin your career,” as reported by TMZ.
Sean also went ahead to pen his 2014 hit “I don’t f–k with you,” a song many people believed to be about Rivera and one he’d eventually regret making (via Essence).
