Naya Rivera's Father Warned Her Not to Get Out of Her Boat


Last year actress Naya Rivera drowned on Lake Piru in Ventura County CA after going for a swim off the side of her rented pontoon boat during a day trip with her then 4-year-old son Josey [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Naya's father, George Rivera, claims she FaceTimed him from the boat and he begged her not to go swimming... 

"She would always bounce stuff off me," George, 64, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview for this week's issue. "And she wanted to go swimming with Josey out in the middle of the lake."
But when his eldest daughter informed him that the boat didn't have an anchor, George - who was taking a break from remodeling his home in Knoxville, Tennessee, when the call came through - instantly realized that jumping into the lake for a swim was a bad idea.
"I could see that the wind was blowing and my stomach was just cringing," recalls George, an avid boater. "I kept telling her, 'Don't get out of the boat! Don't get out of the boat! It will drift away when you're in the water.'"
After about three minutes, their FaceTime call cut out. "It was just heartbreaking," says George, who was left staring at the screenshot he snapped of his daughter in sunglasses and a baseball cap, grinning beneath the boat's canopy with a bright blue sky overhead.
"I had this bad feeling that was just killing me," he remembers.

She was an actress, meaning she wasn't a rocket scientist.
I think she went out there to kill herself and the kid, but it didn't go as planned.

Look I don't; have a problem with Blacktina's the claim their blackness proudly. I honestly cannot name one who culturally and appropriately represents this. When these exoticals get on, they totally turn their backs on blackness, except when they get caught misappropriating like Doja Cat, DaniLeigh and now some damn bytch thot-rapping female rapper named "Mulatto", who too was caught talking slick about dark-skinned women and Cardi B had been caught calling dark-skinned women "black roaches'. So a agree in these traffic "mulatto's and Blacktina's who DON'T represent our culture and sell us out for the white man's oppression of black. I don't listen to rap music any more. Only old skool Queen Latifah, Lady Rage, Mia X and MCLyte. Because of what I just stated about colorism in the Entertainment world as it relates to Naya. I never seen her at any NAACP awards or black venues with any of these heffa's, unless it's on the arm of a black wack ass rapper.
