How much is Naya Rivera worth? Naya Rivera is worth $5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and that’s a fortune liable to make this “Glee” star feel, well, gleeful. Naya was born on January 12, 1987, in Valencia, California, and she wasted no time getting involved in showbiz. Rivera modeled for catalogs as a toddler, and at the tender age of four, she landed the part of Hillary Winston on the comedy series “The Royal Family.” The show earned positive reviews, but it was cancelled after star Red Foxx suffered a heart attack. In the decade that followed, Rivera played bit parts on shows like “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” “Bay Watch,” and “Family Matters,” and while she cobbled together a respectable career, she was hardly a superstar.

That changed in 2009, when Naya Rivera’s net worth and celebrity status got a simultaneous boost. That year, she landed the role of Santana Lopez on “Glee,” the Fox musical comedy series that has since become a smash success. Fans immediately responded to Santana — a vicious cheerleader of the “Mean Girls” variety — and when it was revealed the character is a lesbian, Naya became an even bigger star. In 2011, she hosted the GLAAD Media Awards, and that same year, she announced that she’d signed a deal with Columbia Records.

How much is Naya Rivera worth compared to her “Glee” costars? Even though she’s yet to release an album and start raking in money from record sales, Naya Rivera is richer than “Glee” castmate Dianna Agron, who’s worth $2.5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Alas, she’s trailing slightly behind Lea Michele, who’s sitting on a cool $5.5 million, but she’s only 27 years old, so there’s still lots of time to bolster her bank account with film and TV roles. Rivera nearly added to her net worth by marrying fellow superstar Big Sean, but she and the rapper announced in April 2014 that their engagement was off.
