Ryan Murphy: Lea Michele and Naya Rivera’s Rivalry Wasn’t the Only ‘Glee’ Feud


Ryan Murphy is setting the record straight on all those Naya Rivera and Lea Michele feud rumors.

The Glee stars did not get along during the final seasons of the hit FOX show, something Naya eventually addressed in her memoir, Sorry Not Sorry, in 2016.

Now the co-creator, who is also the mastermind behind American Horror Story, is gearing up for his new FX show, Feud, which is based on the rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.

When asked whether Naya and Lea’s rivalry could be used as material for a future season, the creator held nothing back.

"I feel like in the case of that show [Glee], that show was just a s—tstorm of difficulty, largely because, what do you do when you're 18 years old or 19 years old and you wake up one day and you're world famous?” he told E! News.

“I think a lot of that was informed by their youth and being involved in a phenomenon. And I know for a fact that they [Lea and Naya] admired each other's work, ‘cause I directed them both in scenes.”

Though he acknowledged the pair didn’t necessarily get along on set, he’s not planning on using their feud for his show.

“I don't think I would take on Lea and Naya. I think for a feud to work on this show, it has to have decades of pain behind it. But if they're still feuding at 40, I might consider it. I'll call them up in a couple years."

The 51-year-old also revealed a little secret about his days on Glee — some of the boys didn’t get along either!

"There were many boys on our show that didn't get along. And you never hear about that. You never hear about that in our culture."

He definitely has a point.

OK, now we want to know which boys were fighting! Who do you think it was? Tell us below!
