Naya Rivera’s body was discovered Monday morning in the Southern California lake where she disappeared while on a boat outing with her 4-year-old son, according to a report.

A body found Monday morning in Lake Piru, about 56 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, was confirmed to be that of the “Glee” actress, law enforcement sources told TMZ.

Rivera, 33, went missing Wednesday after renting a pontoon boat on the lake, something the California native had done several times before.

A source who worked on the Fox show, who declined to be identified for fear of retribution, tells The Post that “Glee” is simply overshadowed by gloom.

Johnny Depp on Monday claimed then-wife Amber Heard hit him with a “haymaker” punch the same night someone pooped in his bed — hours after he found out he’d lost a staggering $750 million.

“Since ‘Pirates [of the Caribbean]’ 2 and 3, I had — and this is ludicrous to have to state, it’s quite embarrassing — apparently I had made $650 million,” the 57-year-old star admitted in London’s High Court.

But on his wife’s 30th birthday in April 2016, he had a “bad meeting” concerning his former business manager, who he told the court had “stolen my money.”

“I had not only lost $650 million, but I was $100 million in the hole because they had not paid the government my taxes for 17 years,” Depp told the court.
