Ryan Dorsey, the grieving ex-husband of the late “Glee” actress Naya Rivera who is also the father of her child, is reportedly finding comfort by dating her 25-year-old sister.
Daily Mail reported that Dorsey, 37, has moved in with Rivera’s supermodel sister Nickayla two months after the 33-year-old actress tragically drowned in Lake Piru while boating with her 4-year-old son Josey. Sources say that Dorsey and Nickayla have been inseparable ever since Rivera’s death and that they have been caring for Josey together.
“They seem really comfortable together and are obviously helping each other through a very difficult period in both their lives,” said a source who witnessed them shocking together at Target recently. “They were fooling around and chatting the whole time. They’re obviously helping lift each other’s spirits.”
Rivera went missing on July 8 after going out on a boat on Lake Piru with Josey. The boy was found alone on the boat hours later, and he said that he had been swimming with his mother before she managed to help him get back on the boat. He said she did not get back on board herself, however.
Rivera’s body was found five days later, and her cause of death was ruled to be an accidental drowning. Afterward, Dorsey took to social media to pay tribute to her.
“This is so unfair…there’s not enough words to express the hole left in everyone’s hearts,” he wrote. “I can’t believe this is life now. I don’t know if I’ll ever believe it. You were just here. Life is all about good times and bad times but with Josey, it makes the bad a little less so because a part of you will always be with us. He’ll never forget where he came from. We miss you. We will always love you.”
Nickaya paid tribute to her sister as well.
“Side by side or miles apart, our connection is infinite,” she wrote. “Our bond is unbreakable. We were complete opposites, yet simultaneously the same. The yin to my yang. I never knew that by losing you, I would find so much of you in myself.’
“I’ve never known a life without you in it & still can’t imagine it,” Nickayla added. “My world is turned upside down. But through it all, everything we were, we are still. I’ll always look at you with the same eyes as I did when I was young. My shmaya, I’ll love you for eternity & miss you every second of my life.”
