Who is Naya Rivera?
Naya Rivera is an American actress and singer. She started her career as a child actress and model, resembling in national television commercials before landing the role of Hillary Winston on the short-lived CBS sitcom The Royal Family at the age of 4.
Rivera received her breakthrough role as a grown-up as Santana Lopez on the Fox television series Glee (2009–2015), for which Rivera received nominations for copious accolades. She married actor Ryan Dorsey in 2014, and they had a son, Josey Hollis, in September 2015.
Rivera’s life took a turn in late 2017 after she was arrested on domestic battery in 2017 against her ex-husband, actor Ryan Dorsey, who is the father of her child.

The charge was withdrawn after Dorsey told prosecutors he didn’t want to continue. The couple divorced in 2018.
Source says the boy and his mother take the rental boat out onto Lake Piru, in Los Padres National Forest, late Wednesday afternoon. About three hours after they set off, another boater reportedly spotted the boat floating and then found the boy unconscious on board.
