Last week Thursday, she shared another chilling post, writing on Instagram: ‘no matter the year, circumstance, or strifes everyday you’re alive is a blessing. make the most of today and every day you are given. tomorrow is not promised.’ 

Fans have questioned whether she intended to drown herself and take her son with her. 

Lyrics to Eminem’s song are: ‘Just the two of us / C’mon hai-hai, we goin’ to the beach / Grab a couple of toys and let da-da strap you in the car seat / Oh where’s mama? she’s takin a little nap in the trunk/ Oh that smell (whew!) da-da musta runned over a skunk

‘Now I know what you’re thinkin’, it’s kind of late to go swimmin’ / But you know your mama, she’s one of those type of women / That do crazy things, and if she don’t get her way, she’ll throw a fit 

‘Don’t play with da-da’s toy knife, honey, let go of it (no!) / And don’t look so upset, why you actin’ bashful? / Don’t you want to help da-da build a sand castle? (yeah!)

‘And mama said she wants to show how far she can float

‘Da-da made a nice bed for mommy at the bottom of the lake / Here, you want to help da-da tie a rope around this rock? (yeah!)

‘We’ll tie it to her footsie then we’ll roll her off the dock / Ready now, here we go, on the count of three dummies / One, two, free, wee! (whoosh)

‘There goes mama, spwashin’ in the wa-ta / No more fightin wit dad, no more restraining order / No more step-da-da, no more new brother/ Blow her kisses bye-bye, tell mama you love her (mommy!)’

Rivera shared custody of Josey with her ex-husband Ryan Dorsey, marrying on July 19, 2014 – which was originally Rivera’s wedding date with rapper Big Sean.

The couple welcomed Josey the following year but their relationship soured when they filed for divorce in 2016. 

Although they called off the divorce, things took a turn for the worse again when Rivera was arrested on a domestic battery charge on Thanksgiving weekend in 2017. 

Charges against Rivera were later dropped, but the couple eventually divorced and split custody of Josey.  

Rivera’s presumed death comes among a string of heartbreaks and horrors surrounding the hit show, including Cory Monteith’s accidental drug overdose in 2013, Naya’s ex-boyfriend Mark Salling’s conviction for possession of child pornography and subsequent suicide in 2018 and recent rumours of unrest on-set. 

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department confirmed last night that it was conducting a search for Rivera, who starred as Santana Lopez in 113 episodes of the hit musical series from 2009 to 2015.

Divers and helicopters were scouring the reservoir until darkness fell but no trace of Rivera has been found and the search has now been halted until morning.

 The discovery was made when another boater raised the alarm after seeing the vessel drifting. They approached it to find Josey on board, asleep, and Rivera nowhere to be found.

Josey was wearing his life-vest but an adult life-vest was found on the boat, suggesting Rivera was not wearing hers.

Four-year-old Josey later told investigators that he climbed back on the boat and his mother did not, but the circumstances are unclear and cops say it is ‘challenging’ to interrogate a toddler. 

According to TMZ, the boy says his mother ‘jumped in the water and didn’t come back up’. 

At least eight other people have drowned in the lake since 1994, including a father who died in 2008 after saving his daughter who’d fallen in to the water. He was able to get her back onto their boat before it drifted away and he died.

Demi Lovato was among the celebrities to hold out hope last night, asking her 87 million Instagram followers to ‘pray for Naya Rivera to be found safe and sound’.

Rivera’s former Glee co-star Heather Morris said: ‘We need all the prayers we can get to bring our Naya back to us… we need your love and light.’

Glee cast member Harry Shum Jr, who played Mike Chang, simply wrote ‘Praying’, while Iqbal Theba (Principal Figgins) and Max Adler (David Karofsky) have also posted concerned messages on social media.

Rivera’s ex-fiancee Big Sean signaled his concern this morning by liking a series of tweets praying for her safety and demanding that the search for her should continue.

Zack Teperman, a publicist who said Rivera was ‘one of the first people I had the honor of working with’, said he was ‘in complete disbelief and shock right now’.

‘Was just messaging Naya a few weeks back. This can’t be true. Prayers for her little boy,’ he said last night.

Officials told NBC Los Angeles that Rivera’s disappearance was ‘considered to be a horrible accident’, saying there was no suspicion of foul play.

Authorities believe Rivera to be ‘presumed drowned,’ according to Captain Eric Buschow, a spokesman for the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. He told the Ventura County Star that authorities were searching for a body.

Reports say that some of Rivera’s possessions including a purse, wallet and food were found on the boat. Another purse is said to have been left in Rivera’s car, a Mercedes G-Wagon which was still in the parking lot.

Lyrics to Eminem’s 97′ Bonnie & Clyde

Just the two of us

C’mon hai-hai, we goin’ to the beach

Grab a couple of toys and let da-da strap you in the car seat

Oh where’s mama? she’s takin a little nap in the trunk

Oh that smell (whew!) da-da musta runned over a skunk

Now I know what you’re thinkin’, it’s kind of late to go swimmin’

But you know your mama, she’s one of those type of women

That do crazy things, and if she don’t get her way, she’ll throw a fit

Don’t play with da-da’s toy knife, honey, let go of it (no!)

And don’t look so upset, why you actin’ bashful?

Don’t you want to help da-da build a sand castle? (yeah!)

And mama said she wants to show how far she can float

And don’t worry about that little boo-boo on her throat

It’s just a little scratch, it don’t hurt, her was eatin’

Dinner while you were sweepin’ and spilled ketchup on her shirt

Mama’s messy isn’t she? we’ll let her wash off in the water

And me and you can pway by ourselves, can’t we?

Just the two of us

Just the two of us

And when we ride!

Just the two of us

Just the two of us

Just you and I!

Just the two of us

Just the two of us

And when we ride!

Just the two of us

Just the two of us

Just you and I!

See honey, there’s a place called heaven and a place called hell

A place called prison and a place called jail

And da-da’s probably on his way to all of ’em except one

‘Cause mama’s got a new husband and a stepson

And you don’t want a brother do ya? (nah)

Maybe when you’re old enough to understand a little better

I’ll explain it to ya

But for now we’ll just say mama was real real bad

She was bein’ mean to dad and made him real real mad

But I still feel sad that I put her on time-out

Sit back in your chair honey, quit tryin’ to climb out (wa’!)

I told you it’s okay hai hai, want to ba-ba?

Take a night-night? nan-a-boo, goo-goo ga-ga?

Her make goo-goo ca-ca? da-da change your dia-dee

Clean the baby up so her can take a nighty-nighty

Your dad’ll wake her up as soon as we get to the water

Ninety-seven bonnie and clyde, me and my daughter

Just the two of us

Just the two of us

And when we ride!

Just the two of us

Just the two of us

Just you and I!

Just the two of us

Just the two of us

And when we ride!

Just the two of us

Just the two of us

Just you and I!

Wake up sweepy head we’re here, before we pway

We’re gonna take mama for a whittle walk along the pier

Baby, don’t cry honey, don’t get the wrong idea

Mama’s too sweepy to hear you screamin’ in her ear (ma-ma!)

That’s why you can’t get her to wake, but don’t worry

Da-da made a nice bed for mommy at the bottom of the lake

Here, you want to help da-da tie a rope around this rock? (yeah!)

We’ll tie it to her footsie then we’ll roll her off the dock

Ready now, here we go, on the count of three dummies

One, two, free, wee! (whoosh)

There goes mama, spwashin’ in the wa-ta

No more fightin wit dad, no more restraining order

No more step-da-da, no more new brother

Blow her kisses bye-bye, tell mama you love her (mommy!)

Now we’ll go play in the sand, build a castle and junk

But first, just help dad with two more things out the trunk

Just the two of us

Just the two of us

And when we ride!
