Naya Rivera and Ryan Dorsey had an on-and-off relationship.

In the fall of 2016, just over two years after tying the knot, Ryan and Naya announced their intention to divorce. They reconciled and called off their divorce in October of 2017, but they dealt with serious issues shortly thereafter.

In November of 2017, Naya was arrested in West Virginia, which is where Ryan is from, and she was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. 

Reports stated that Naya had hit Ryan in the face after an argument about their son. Ryan's father picked Naya up from jail, and she was released on a $1,000 bond. One month later, Naya filed for divorce again, and the terms of the split were finalized in July of 2018.
