It has been almost two months since the sudden passing of access Naya Rivera who sadly lost her life at the age of 33. While Rivera’s family and many fans are continuing to come to terms with the late Glee star’s tragic death, Big Sean is revealing how Naya’s passing has impacted him.
The two were previously engaged for a brief period before a very public break-up that led to Sean releasing his hit single “IDFWU”. Speaking out to Vulture about the backlash he received because of the song, Sean admits that he’s “still processing” Naya’s death and that it was “hurtful” to have the song now connected to her passing. The ‘Detroit 2’ rapper says, “She’s made such an impact on people, and she’s done so many great things in her life and her career that it was hurtful to even have that [song] be associated with her. It wasn’t a diss to her. I truly made the song and played it for her. She knew about it, and she liked it.”
Big Sean goes on to say that although the pair were young during their split, they both forgave each other and moved on from their past relationship.

Rest In Peace Naya, God Bless your Soul! Thank you for blessing us all with your talent and presence. you are a hero! Not just because of how you saved your son, also because of the barriers you knocked down for so many people to make them feel confident in themselves and to stand tall and be proud when they couldn’t achieve that on their own. I appreciate and cherish everything that ever happened between us for making me wiser and a better person. I’m still grieving and in shock, I can’t believe this is real. I’m praying for you and your family and I know your watching over them and protecting them. Rest In Peace Naya 💙🙏🏾
