Just over a year after welcoming her first child into the world, Naya Rivera has said goodbye to the man who played a key role in this miraculous event.
The actress has filed for divorce from Ryan Dorsey.
The parents of little Josey Hollis Dorsey, Rivera and Dorsey dated briefly a few years ago.
But Rivera then went on to strike up a romance with Big Sean and to get engaged to the rapper in 2013, only to see that relationship fall apart amidst rumors of infidelity (on his part) and controlling behavior (on Naya’s part).
After apparently finding out that her engagement was over from Big Sean’s publicist, the ex-Glee star then returned to Dorsey’s arms a short while later.
Just three months after they reconciled, Rivera and Dorsey got married in a surprise wedding ceremony in Mexico.
“We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife,” the newlyweds told People in July of 2014. “Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for.”
It seemed very much like a brash decision and as though Dorsey was nothing more than a rebound. But Rivera proceeded to get pregnant and then birth to her son last fall.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Rivera filed for divorce last week and is seeking primary physical custom of Josey.
In her very raw and honest memoir, “Sorry Not Sorry,” Rivera revealed that she had undergone an abortion while a part of the Glee cast and had broken up with Dorsey just weeks earlier.
This took place the first time they dated.
In September, she praised her husband for his reaction to this deeply private old news.
“He said, ‘Uh you know, in the short time that we dated, I wish that I could have done something to make you feel like you could have trusted me with that information because I would have loved to have been there with you,'” Riva recalled for the ladies of The Real, adding:
“And I was like, ‘God, that’s amazing, thank you so much.’
“I think it was the kindest and best thing that any man could have ever said in that situation. It just made me love him that much more, so I thank him for that.”
What happened since this talk show appearance that made Rivera feel differetly about Dorsey?
We really can’t say. We simple don’t know.
But it’s not as if plenty of Hollywood couples don’t split up, as we’ve documented in the photo gallery above.
It seems fair to categorize Rivera as impulsive, based on what we’ve read and what we know about her. So let’s hope she doesn’t come to regret this decision.
Just as we were about to publish this article, Rivera and Dorsey released a joint statement.
“After much consideration, we have made the decision to end our marriage.
“Our priority is and always will be our beautiful son that we share together. We will continue to be great co-parenting partners for him. We ask for respect and privacy for our family during this difficult time.”
We wish both Rivera and Dorsey nothing but the best moving forward.
