The 'Glee' creator recently came under fire from Naya's father, George Rivera, who accused Ryan of failing to follow through on his promise, but Ryan and his co-creators - Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan - have now revealed they have been making progress on their plans to support the late actress' son.

A statement explained: "Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan have committed to fund and create a college fund for her child through the Naya Rivera Estate Trust, and have been in repeated conversations with the appropriate executors of her estate."

The statement followed George taking to Twitter to address the issue.

He wrote on the micro-blogging platform: "Everyone needs to know what Ryan Murphy really did ... or didn’t do !!! I’m about to blow up this story .... and make sure he’s knows that I know. (sic)"

He later added: "When you are part of the Hollywood elite, some people treat others as they are “less than” .... vocalize a good game , but it’s as shallow as the sets on stage , that they create. Promises made in public, only to fade with time and excuses .... even in a unexplainable tragedy ...

"Broken Promises..... fake outrage .... hollow gestures ..... no phone call (sic)"

Naya - who played Santana Lopez in 'Glee' - passed away in July last year following a boating accident on Lake Piro in California.

The actress was with her son Josey, five, at the time and after he survived the accident, the makers of the show pledged to create a college fund.

They said in a statement: "Our hearts go out to her family, especially her mom Yolanda, who was big part of the Glee family and her son Josey. The three of us are currently in the process of creating a college fund for the beautiful son Naya loved most of all."
