Naya Rivera's ex Ryan Dorsey breaks down in tears and says her sister Nickayla is 'the closest thing to a mom Josey has'

NAYA Rivera's ex Ryan Dorsey broke down in tears as he admitted her sister Nickayla is "the closest thing to a mom son Josey has" after she moved into his family home.

The actor, 37, addressed the claims in an emotional video on Instagram, telling followers: "You're going to need all the help you can get as a single parent trying to build your career and navigate this disaster with your child."

Ryan's recent post comes days after Nickayla, 25, reportedly moved in with the Glee star's ex to help raise his five-year-old son.

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, the star revealed Nickayla had moved in at the request of Josey.

He said: "[Josey] asks me if Titi can live with us. 'I want Titi to live with us forever,' because she's now the closest thing he has to a mom. You're going to need all the help you can get as a single parent trying to build your career and navigate this disaster with your child."

Ryan added that he was determined to give his young son a normal upbringing.



He explained: "It's a temporary situation. After all that he's had to go through how could you deny him that? Because of what?

"What some strangers might think or say, or spew some hatred based on some ill-advised, ill-logical, misinformed tabloid?"

The Ray Donovan actor later added: "To have a young woman who is his blood, his Titi, who is willing to put her life on hold and sacrifice things, uproot her situation for the betterment of your child."

As well as being there for his son, Nickayla has been helping Ryan cope with his grief.



"So when you put your child to bed you don't always have to be alone with your thoughts and you don't have to be sad any day or night wondering when does it get better," Ryan said.

"At least you have someone there with you to talk to or just sit in silence and be sad with. You don't have to deal with being completely alone."

Earlier this week, Ryan and Nickayla were seemingly spotted holding hands while shopping at Target.

The pair were also pictured moving her belongings into Ryan's home.



Naya, who starred on the hit TV show Glee, and fellow actor Dorsey rekindled a previous relationship after the actress’ split from rapper Big Sean in 2014; they were married in July 2014 and Josey was born on September 17, 2015.

Naya initially sought to split from Dorsey in 2016, though the two reconciled. They eventually made their separation official in 2018.

On July 13, Ventura County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that 33-year-old Naya was discovered floating near the surface in the Lake Piru’s northeast region.

The actress went missing while on a boating trip to the Los Angeles area reservoir with son Josey.

When she failed to return her rental boat on time, employees searched for the missing watercraft and discovered Josey on board alone wearing a life vest.

A 911 caller told the dispatcher that the youngster’s mother was “nowhere to be found” and police later confirmed that a second life jacket assumed to be Naya’s was also on the boat along with her purse and wallet.

Her death was officially ruled an accidental drowning.
