Are former “Glee” star Naya Rivera and comedian David Spade dating?
E! News, citing anonymous sources, said over the weekend that Rivera, 30, and Spade, 52, have been seeing each other for roughly two weeks and have been attempting to keep their relationship out of the public eye. Us Weekly and other outlets published photos showing the two behaving romantically in a swimming pool at the Halekulani hotel on Waikiki beach in Hawaii on Thursday.
Rivera and former “Saturday Night Live” and “Just Shoot Me” star Spade were in the cast of the Charlie Sheen TV movie “Mad Families,” which debuted on the streaming service Crackle in January.
Rivera on Saturday appeared to respond to the reports, with a 10-second video that appeared on the Instagram account of the fan group Naya Rivera Team. Lying down against a pillow, and adorned with a special-effects filter leopard ears and muzzle, the actress said in a distorted high-pitched voice. “The Easter Bunny and the . . . Tooth Fairy are for sure dating. I just saw them.”
Neither Spade nor Rivera have commented on their own verified social-media sites.
On Nov. 15, Rivera filed for divorce from actor Ryan Dorsey, her husband of 15 months. The two had married on July 19, 2014, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and have an 18-month-old son, Josey. Rivera, who played cheerleader-turned-singer-actress Santana Lopez on “Glee,” previously had been engaged to rapper Big Sean, but the two called it off in April 2014.
Spade has never been married, but he and model Jillian Grace, Playboy’s March 2005 Playmate centerfold, have an 8-year-old daughter named Harper.
