Naya Rivera's father claims Glee producer Ryan Murphy 'broke promise' to create college fund for star's son Josey, 5

NAYA Rivera's father claimed Glee producer Ryan Murphy "broke promise" to create a college fund for the late star's five-year-old son Josey.

The actress tragically passed away when she accidentally drowned in July.



Following Naya's passing, Glee producers Ryan, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan pledged to create a college fund for her son.

While paying tribute to Naya, they said in a statement: "The three of us are currently in the process of creating a college fund for the beautiful son Naya loved most of all."

Naya's father, George Rivera, took to Twitter to slam Ryan, 55, for not following through on his promise.

Responding to a tweet with the producers' statement, George initially tweeted: "Everyone needs to know what Ryan Murphy really did … or didn’t do !!! I’m about to blow up this story …. and make sure he’s knows that I know …."

A fan responded by writing: "mr. rivera gonna drag ryan murphy’s a** as he should."



Naya's father continued to express his frustrations by saying: "When you are part of the Hollywood elite, some people treat others as they are 'less than' …. vocalize a good game , but it’s as shallow as the sets on stage , that they create. Promises made in public, only to fade with time and excuses …. even in a unexplainable tragedy …"

When another Twitter user told him to "let it out," George tweeted: "Broken Promises….. fake outrage …. hollow gestures ….. no phone call."

Naya, who portrayed Santana Lopez on Glee from 2009-2015, shared Josey with ex-husband Ryan Dorsey.

The actress went missing in July after she rented a boat and took Josey out to spend a day at a lake.



Her body was found on July 13, five days after she went missing during the boating trip in California.

The actress' body was discovered floating near the surface of California’s Lake Piru.

Police said the former Glee star used the last of her energy pushing her son back onboard a boat but didn't have enough to save herself.

Josey told cops his mom "boosted him onto the deck of their rental boat from behind" before he "saw her disappear under surface of water" after they went swimming.

The announcement came as Naya's family and former Glee castmates gathered at the lake to support each other following the tragic discovery.
