6. Naya Rivera (Glee)

After multiple rumors of tension between Glee costars Naya Rivera and Lea Michelle, the producers of the show decided to let Rivera go. In April 2014, the female feud reached its peak during an on set altercation causing the producers to decide it was time to make a change. Although FOX attempted to claim that Rivera’s contract with Glee was still in tact and no firing occurred, it was eventually revealed that Rivera was “written out” of the season five finale and would not return for a sixth season, which made these claims highly questionable.

Short allegedly attacked his wife in their Los Angeles home and threatened to kill both her and himself due to her rumoured cheating. Fans vocalized their desire to have him cut from the show after the news of his domestic violence came to light and producers seemed to agree since they responded to the allegations by letting him go from the popular series.
