The former Glee actress Naya Rivera was recently arrested on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge after allegedly assaulting her husband Ryan Dorsey in West Virginia. According to E! News, a source told them that Naya’s family and friends are very worried about her well-being.
On Saturday, a call was made to the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office about a domestic violence complaint from Ryan saying that Naya hit him in the face and the head.
A source tells E! News that “This is not the first time that their relationship has been violent, and the fact that she hit her husband and lashed out like that, is very scary to everyone around her.”
Ryan later tweeted a statement to fans saying, “This is a difficult time for everyone in the family especially for Naya and I. This isn’t some reality show, this is our life, and I ask that everyone especially ‘the media’ please respect our privacy and treat us/this situation how you would want a loved one to be treated. Perhaps with kindness, respect, without judgment, and as negative a situation this is, with positivity and love. Thanks.”
