Naya Rivera and Big Sean dated for sometime before the latter became such a renowned name. Big Sean was at an initial stage in his career when his relationship with Rivera began and ended. It was then believed that his song ‘IDFWU’ was written for her. However, after Naya’s tragic and sudden death, the fans aren’t impressed with the song at all.
Naya died on July 8, 2020 due to a tragic boating accident. Her death came as a shock to many. The authorities did not know for some time what exactly happened. But, it was later discovered that Naya was swimming when she got distressed and used her energy to save her son, Dorsey, who was with her then.
Naya and Big Sean ended their engagement in 2013 without an explanation and he released ‘IDFWU’ in 2015. After the ‘Glee’ star’s death, Sean posted a message online, saying that he is still in shock. Talking about the song and public’s reaction to it, Sean says that he’s hurt.
He says that for people to associate that song with Naya, who has achieved so much in life is simply wrong. He also said that all the reasons that led to their breakup was long forgotten and forgiven. He says that they were young and had moved on long back. He has nothing but love and respect for Naya Rivera.
