Naya Rivera has Twitter to thank for her relationship with Big Sean.
The Glee star revealed in the latest issue of Cosmo Latina that she was” bored at work” one day and decided to follow the rapper after he caught her eye in a hot GQ magazine spread.
Big Sean – who’s real name is Sean Michael Anderson – was out of the country but alerted to the fact she decided to follow him by some of her million-plus followers on the social media site.
And fortunately for Naya, Sean’s assistant – who is Puerto Rican like the 27-year-old actress – was a fan of Glee and alerted him to the fact that Naya was now a follower, even though he was unaware of her TV star status.
“She told him, ‘I’m Puerto Rican, she’s Puerto Rican; it sounds like you’d have so much fun with her,’” Rivera told the magazine. The rapper then checked out an episode of Glee and apparently liked what he saw because he responded with a private message. And the rest as they say is history.
The two began dating officially in April 2013 and got engaged in October.
Naya’s lucky Sean’s assistant was a Gleek!
