Mrs. Carter: Naya Rivera has officially grabbed her most surprising headline yet.
Months after her engagement ended with Big Sean, the “Glee” star has completely shocked everyone (and also apparently some of her own friends) by marrying Ryan Dorsey, a longtime friend of hers and an actor with a few credits to his name. The two married in Cabo Sam Lucas in a small, private ceremony, and a source close to her told Us Weekly the following all about it:
“Naya didn’t tell most of her friends that she was marrying Ryan Dorsey, let alone that she was dating him! The whole thing is a complete surprise.”
The bizarre part of this story is that Rivera was supposedly planning to marry Big Sean on this day had the two of them stayed together, though they had not nailed down a specific location just yet. We’re not surprised that Mexico was eventually chosen in this case, given the fact that the actress and many of her other co-stars on the Fox show have frequented the country on vacations (and it’s totally gorgeous there!). It’s a close enough locale so that there is not a whole lot of travel required from Los Angeles, but it is also still far enough away to get a little bit of much-needed rest and relaxation.
Rivera is set to return to “Glee” for the final season, albeit in a slightly smaller role than in the past. At the moment, she is planning to recur in just a small handful of episodes as the famed Santana Lopez.
