Rest In Peace Naya, God Bless your Soul! Thank you for blessing us all with your talent and presence. you are a hero! Not just because of how you saved your son, also because of the barriers you knocked down for so many people to make them feel confident in themselves and to stand tall and be proud when they couldn’t achieve that on their own. I appreciate and cherish everything that ever happened between us for making me wiser and a better person. I’m still grieving and in shock, I can’t believe this is real. I’m praying for you and your family and I know your watching over them and protecting them. Rest In Peace Naya 💙🙏🏾
- Their breakup seemed to be a nasty one as Big Sean’s song I Don’t F*ck With You was thought to be a reference to the now passed Rivera.
Since their breakup, Big Sean has continued to date other celebrities such as Ariana Grande and Jhene Aiko. After Naya Rivera and Big Sean split, she eventually married Ryan Dorsey back in 2014 and had one son with him.
