Amber Riley Blames Twitter For 'Glee' Departure Rumor

Amber Riley is NOT leaving Glee – at least not yet! Amber sparked rumors of her departure from the popular musical when she tweeted,

“I’m going to miss the whole Glee family, seeing them everyday! I have so many brothers and sisters now 🙂 But I am looking forward to a much needed and deserved summer vacation! SCHOOL’S OUT Glee Kids! Let’s play!”

It certainly easy to see how many thought the 26-year old actress was leaving the show after three seasons based on the above tweet.

“My tweet apparently has been misconstrued,” tweeted Amber after hearing of the rumors.

“I was not confirming I was leaving the show. Just stating that I would miss being in the classroom everyday with the cast and that would be changing. Thanks for the support guys,” she continued explaining via the message posted on Thursday, May 10. “That’s the good and bad thing about twitter. It can be used to extinguish rumors but it also spreads them like wildfire!”

Looks like fans can look forward to at least another year with Mercedes as she enters into her senior year next season.
