ACTRESS Naya Rivera has been axed from Glee following a ‘major altercation’ with star Lea Michele, according to reports.

It is believed that actresses had always been frosty with each other – however things came to a head on the set of the hit Fox show earlier this month.

"They're always icy to each other”, a show source told US Weekly.

"Naya is jealous that Lea is the show's main star -  There is a lot of sighing and eye-rolling between them."

“They talk behind each other's backs — a lot."

27-year-old Rivera has now seen her character written out of the series.

It is had been rumored that her status for the sixth and final series of the show was in doubt – however the altercation with Lea made producers decide to bring her time on the show to an end.

Lea Michele has always been seen as the star of the show, and the one most likely to achieve success after it ends.

She has proved incredibly popular with fans – many admiring how the actress coped with the tragic death of boyfriend Cory Monteith.
