What Rivera needs right now is a little happiness and if she’s found it in Dorsey, then good for her. Let’s just hope she doesn’t read the scathing comments like these ones judging her for moving on.
Glee star Naya Rivera has found her happily ever after.
The actress married actor Ryan Dorsey on July 19 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in front of a small group of close family.
"We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife," the couple told PEOPLE exclusively. "Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for."
Dorsey, who is originally from Charleston, West Virginia, attended the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts before moving to Los Angeles, where he met Rivera four years ago. Longtime friends, they saw their relationship blossom into a romance shortly after her engagement to rapper Big Sean ended in April.
For their nuptials, Rivera, 27, wore a Monique Lhuillier gown while Dorsey wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit. She carried a bouquet of daisies and baby’s breath and the couple exchanged Neil Lane rings.
Now back home in L.A., the couple are excited to start their new lives as newlyweds.
As they told PEOPLE: “True love always prevails.”

The video follows people of different backgrounds passing an envelope to each other, the contents of which aren’t revealed until the end.
“The way it weaved through people’s lives, we’re all interconnected,” Rivera told BuzzFeed. “We wanted to make it fluid and beautiful.”
She said the story mattered to her personally. “Aside from being a Latina, my family immigrated from Puerto Rico and Yugoslavia so I know all about that,” she said. “I wouldn’t be able to do what I do today if they didn’t come to America. Everybody has an immigration story.”
Rivera was interested in making a stylized video, complete with 360 degree shots, that took take place in New York City. “I felt like for this story it just made sense,” she said. “New York is such a melting pot, it’s a place where dreams are made.”
Rivera said the political side of the immigration debate can sometimes take away from the big picture. “Immigration shows how beautiful America is as a country, how diverse it is,” she said. “It’s what you get when you have different cultures in one place. If everybody thought that way [immigration] would be more of a no-brainer.”
