One of Your Favorite Glee Girl’s Got a New Bae… Who’s 20 Years Older Than She is!
After a year that ended in divorce, Melissa Benoist has a new love in her life — The Vampire Diaries hottie/Supergirl love interest Chris Wood! — and it looks like her Glee co-star, Naya Rivera, is following in her footsteps, taking up a relationship of her own in the months following her own divorce at the end of 2016.
According to Us Weekly, the 30-year-old actress, who portrayed Santana Lopez on the Fox dramedy throughout the series’ duration, is dating… David Spade. You know, the comedian from all those Adam Sandler movies (ex. Grown Ups, Jack and Jill, The Do-Over, etc.)? Yeah, THAT David Spade. “They started seeing each other a couple weeks ago,” the site reports of the brunette beauty and the 52-year-old actor. “It’s casual. They’re having fun.”
Entertainment Tonight broke the news, after the two were spotted packing on the PDA in multiple pictures taken on Thursday, March 30, while they were in a pool at the Halekulani Hotel on Waikiki Beach in Hawaii. Though you cannot see any kissing in these particular shots, they are seen hugging and laughing.
“They were very happy,” says the report. “They looked pretty comfortable together.”
Naya has since, seemingly, addressed the rumors on Instagram, saying, “Holy sh*t, guys. The Easter bunny and the f*cking tooth fairy are for sure dating. I just saw them.”

Sounds like she’s shooting down the buzz, but that body contact in the pool sure looks cozy.
If the Latina star is hooking up with David, then this is the first guy she’s publicly dated since her split with husband Ryan Dorsey. Naya shocked everyone by filing for divorce from her spouse of two years and father of her child in November 2016. She also asked for primary physical custody of their 2-year-old son, Josey Hollis Dorsey. A lot sure has changed in the last few years…
Before David came along, Naya racked up quite a dating timeline:
