erinjaggererinjaggerNov 27, 2013

people, maybe she really likes him.. I won't judge but I'm also almost certain she dated heather morris at some point

GleekforlifeMay 21, 2013

Yea I'm pretty sure she dated heather morris back then and I'm disappointed that she's dating big sean, for me big sean is kinda waste of time for naya. Kevin McHale is better than big sean, I mean look at naya and kevin

Mitchie18May 11, 2013

I'm pretty sure she dated Heather Morris way back then.... just saying.

srissApr 28, 2013
