Lea Michele Storms Off ‘Glee’ Set After Being Called A Diva

Lea Michele reportedly stormed off the set of Glee on Tuesday.

Sources say that the 27-year-old was infuriated that her co-star, Naya Rivera, went to the producers of the show and complained about her being a “diva.”

The two have been working together on the musical television series since it first aired in 2009. Glee is currently in its fifth season.

A source close to Rivera told TMZ that most of the cast and crew were annoyed at Michele for making everyone wait for her to start shooting while she dealt with her own personal matters on set. The incident is said to have happened more than once. Apparently, they have had it with waiting and Rivera was the one who went to the producers to complain about Michele’s unprofessional behavior.

Michele was able to hear Rivera call her a diva in front of the producers, and that’s what caused her to storm off, said the same source.

However, sources from Michele’s camp are telling a different story. According to them, there were no complaints against Michele, at least none that she knew of, and she and Rivera were not even filming a scene together. They also said that it was Rivera who left the set of Glee and not Michele.

TMZ has also received tips that Rivera was fired, but Rivera’s sources say that the rumor is completely untrue and that she is still very much part of the show.

There are two stories from different camps and one detail is the same in both sides – one of them stormed off the set. Whether it was Michele, or Rivera fans will just have to hope that their feud ends soon. They may even patch things up through a song in true Glee fashion.

The next episode of Glee will be airing on April 22.

    So she was called a Diva, it seems to fit. Even her personality on the show kind of shows that. It definitely isn’t a stretch of the imagination for me to see this coming.

      Because you know her so well? You obviously can’t separate the actor from the character. How does how she act on the Glee show how she acts off set? It sounds to me like Naya is jealous, that seems to fit.

      • Timothy Duggins

        Get over yourself. Stop wanking to her pic long enough and you’d see the attitude too. It comes shining through each episode.

        • vigorlilover

          Joke’s on you, asshat, I have nothing to wank, considering I’m a girl. Not everyone that defends a celebrity has to be obsessed with them like you. You know nothing about that girl, yet you make judgments based on a character she plays on a television show. So exactly what attitude is there to see? You sir have serious mental problems if you cannot separate the two.

          • Timothy Duggins

            Oh you have a little button to play with! You know you do. You remind me of the dork that screamed “Leave Brittney Alone” And was blowing snot out of her nose. Could you be the same Little snot nosed punkie thing? Now go play with that button, you know you wanna.

    well, Lea is the cute one, she is the one who sings better, and Lea is

    the bigger start. The other girl, what is her name, calm the fuck down.

    • Mansa Keita

      Did you call Lea “The cute one”? Hell naw! Her nose completely destroys her face. In the looks department Naya Rivera is shitting on Lea in so many ways.

    • Sylvia Stein

      Yes and Ryan respects her so much!

    • Braylee

      Cute one?? her shnoz is so big it has it’s own vortex. Don’t stand too close you might get sucked in!!

    • Carmen Cotto

      “The cute one”? I’m sorry but she is ugly, and I have to tell the truth and be blunt about it!! Her nose is weird and mouth is I don’t even know what to say about her mouth, I think it got to her head, and I believe she is a real diva, she needs to go!!

    • Vanessa Man

      Why do people assume that just because others have celebrity status they are automatically cute? Lea Michelle is really ugly. If it was not because he has all these stylists that make it look better, she certainly belongs in the worst bunch.

  • Aborigene

    simply a publicity stunt to draw attention for upcoming episodes.

    • Bob

      I guess Lea talking about Cory all the time got old, they needed to find another way to get publicity.

      • Sylvia Stein

        she does not talk about Cory all the time, only when they ask! Lea hater!

  • TJ

    Oh geez…ridiculous! If there is one thing everyone has always said about Lea it’s how professional she is due to her Broadway training. Everyone remember the “rumor” that Kate Hudson hated Lea because was a diva? That also proved false as it turns out Kate is one of Lea’s closest friends and even opened her house to Lea and her family when Cory died and the paps were camped at Lea’s house.

    • Really?

      On the contrary, these rumors have followed Lea since Broadway and have only gotten worse since Glee. Clearly the shoe fits here.

      • Sylvia Stein

        No it does not! Get your facts real ones not the ones from TMZ!

    • Sylvia Stein

      I agree this is ridiculous lies because she is doing so well even without Glee! She will do amazing once it is over due to her own solo album, book and movie – legends of oz while Naya is not doing so great!

  • marion

    yeah this isnt true, they are just doing this to cause drama after Nayas breakup.

  • gina b

    i’m guessing they just need ratings because their show has jumped the shark and is losing major ratings.

  • MzT

    I didn’t even know Glee was still on. They must need viewers.

  • Ryan

    This rumor works very nicely with the one where she’s a heroine addict. I mean, you don’t just date one without becoming one. Maybe her “being a diva” meant she needed to go shoot up before filming scenes so that she doesn’t become dope sick. It all fits in with the junkie life. If you’ve been blessed with a heroine addict’s presence in your life, you’d probably agree.

    • kathy campos

      your a dumb ass for saying that.you must have experiance.

      • Sylvia Stein

        Agreed he is!

    • Sylvia Stein

      Wow- talking about being a hater!

  • Sylvia Stein

    Oh come on why is she always in the wrong- if anyone looks like a witch is Santana or Naya they said the same about her and Kate and it was all lies – Naya is probably just jealous!

    This doesn’t surprise me one bit. I have a friend who is a bartender in L.A. And she came into the bar with her group of about 15 friends who all racked up a bar tab well over 3 grand. And after she ordered her food she went in to the kitchen and screamed at the chef to make sure he prepared it to HER specifications. After ordering the wait staff around like some nazi soldier, she and her group left zero tip besides the mandatory gratuity. I can’t stand her or Glee any way.
