Ryan Murphy Denies That He Broke A Promise To Set Up A College Fund For Naya Rivera’s Son

March 10, 2021 / Posted by:

On July 8th, 2020, Naya Rivera went missing during a boat ride with her then-4 year old son Josey Hollis Dorsey. Josey was found alive in the rented pontoon boat, and it took several days of hard searching to find Naya, which they did, five days later, when she was officially pronounced dead. It was tragic, but Naya’s friends, family, and former coworkers did what they could to rally around her poor son including  Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan. They announced that they would generously set up a college fund for Josey, who is now 5-and-a-half. Cut to yesterday when Josey’s grandpa, and Naya’s father, George Rivera, accused Ryan Murphy of not following through with that promise. And Ryan Murphy would like to clear the air by claiming that there is a future college fund for Josey.

This all started when George replied to a tweet from July of last year, when Ryan, Brad, and Ian’s college fund announcement was first made. George more than implies that the status of Josey’s alleged college fund is basically on the same level as Lea Michele’s current relationship with HelloFresh: nonexistent.

George teased an impromptu éxposé, but it hasn’t happened. Instead, he called on Glee’s fan base to ask where Josey’s college fund is. That got the hashtag #JusticeForTheRiveraFamily trending and Ryan must have noticed. Ryan approached the subject on Twitter last night, and he says Brad, Ian, and himself are still committed to their promise, and that they’ve been dealing with Naya’s estate trust.

That part about the “appropriate” executors sounds like a bit of a shady dig at George Rivera, especially when you re-read the statement and realize that Ryan didn’t deny George’s allegation that Ryan has never called him. And then it’s made exponentially shadier when you see that Ryan also didn’t tag George in his tweet. George clearly doesn’t accept Ryan’s update, because he responded to the situation by retweeting a tweet in which a fan called Ryan Murphy a “person without character.” Naya’s father also claims that he’s involved with Josey’s life and he’s usually looped in to conversations surrounding Josey’s financial future.

Ryan, Brad, and Ian better hurry up and make a call to the bank, because this is turning into a real-life season of Feud, and honestly, without the wigs, a retro soundtrack, and a campy appearance by Jessica Lange, it’s just not that fun to watch.
