Now Nickayla has broken her silence on the rumors...

Now, most people have instantly jumped to assumptions of romance...

It's been almost 3 months since the news broke of Naya's tragic death.

As soon as she was reported as missing, divers and helicopters began scouring the reservoir until darkness fell...

The search proved to be difficult.

Josey's chilling words upon his rescue were released the next day.TMZ, Rivera’s son had told the authorities that his mom had "jumped into the water but didn't come back up."
This was a devastating development...A press conference confirmed that the body, which was found floating in the lake following a 6-day search, was that of Naya Rivera's.
Her autopsy was completed shortly after the discovery.say she died by drowning. They also said: "There is no indication from the investigation or examination that drugs or alcohol played a role in the decedent’s death, but specimens will be submitted for toxicology testing."
People were devastated by the news.

In the months following her death, Naya's family has remained relatively under the radar...But now, there has been a development that none of us were expecting.
As stated earlier, reports have been claiming that Naya's ex-husband, Ryan Dorsey, has moved in with her little sister, Nickayla.

Twenty-five-year-old Nickayla was very close to her older sister...
And, in her grief...
It is perfectly natural for people in mourning to find comfort in one another...Daily Mail confirmed that the pair had moved into a 3 bedroom rented house together with 4-year-old Josey, suspicions began to rise.
Many people have found the whole set-up to be a little problematic...

However, despite the allegations...
She wrote this on her Instagram Stories:
via: Instagram"In the darkest time of my life, the only thing that is important is my friends & family. Showing up for my nephew, even though I can't show up for myself. I'm not concerned with the way things look because no one can see each agonizing moment we all endure. What matters most, I've learned, is to show compassion, not to judge others, & never take a moment of life for granted. I hope you can all do the same."
