Naya Marie Rivera (born January 12, 1987)[1] is an American actress and singer. She is known for her role as Santana Lopez on the Fox television series Glee (2009–2015).

Rivera was signed to Columbia Records as a solo artist in 2011 and released a single in 2013, "Sorry", featuring rapper Big Sean.[2]

In late November 2017, Rivera was arrested and charged in Kanawha County, West Virginia with domestic battery against her future ex-husband Dorsey after she allegedly hit him in the head and face.[3] In January 2018, the domestic battery charge was dismissed at the request of Dorsey.[4]
