Tragic Details About Naya Rivera 4.5

During her life, Naya Rivera had professional successes, but also had her share of tumultuous relationships, career setbacks, and health struggles. Here are the tragic details of Naya Rivera's life.

Naya Rivera was barely old enough to be in kindergarten when she landed her first major role on the CBS sitcom The Royal Family. The Eddie Murphy co-created series, which starred Della Reese lasted only a single season following the death of actor Redd Foxx, who played Rivera's on-screen grandfather.

Rivera had formed a tight-knit bond with the late actor. In her memoir Sorry Not Sorry, she revealed that Foxx would tell people they were actually related, and after a while, Naya began to believe him. Then, one day during rehearsal, she witnessed him suddenly fall to the floor.

The cast initially thought Foxx was joking, but Reese quickly realized it was serious and called the ambulance. The entire production ended up following Foxx to the hospital, where they learned the news. Rivera wrote:

"We sat there, his TV family and his real family, all mixed together in the waiting room, praying and trying to comfort one another. When the doctor came out to tell us that Redd had passed, he delivered the news to the entire group." Keep watching to learn more Tragic Details About Naya Rivera.

Her life was not tragic! She was a survivor and a hero for saving her son. Her death was tragic only because she was taken from us too soon but her life is not. She lived it to the fullest!

Why did I click on this? I guess it's because I'm still so sad about Naya's death and didn't read the title carefully. Naya's life was not tragic and didn't make any more mistakes than most of the rest of us. She wasn't a hurtful or out of control person. Focusing on the negativity is toxic. Did she make mistakes? Yes. Did she live her life with honesty and integrity? Yes. Was she amazingly talented? Yes. Did she have many accomplishments that deserve to be celebrated? Yes. Her talent and accomplishments should be the focus, not profiting off of her youthful missteps.

Can y’all just let her Rest In Peace? Now that her tragic death is a “trend” y’all all of a sudden want to dig in on her past life to feed into your own benefits? Cmon now y’all gotta let her Rest In Peace stop digging into her life because y’all could’ve done that before she died. 🧏🏻‍♀️
