Hey, Chris Colfer: Change your password.

Twitter went retweet crazy when the "Glee" star apparently sent out a tweet to his 2.4 million followers that indicated he was leaving the Fox show due to "personal issues."

But there is no ballad of heartbreak to be sung, it turns out. His account was hacked -- according to his manager, publicist and "Glee" producer 20th Century Fox.

"It's not true," said his rep Alla Plotkin. "His Twitter was hacked."

She added that Colfer was on a flight and doesn't have access to Wi-Fi, hence his inability to delete the tweet or rectify the situation. Colfer will likely take to his Twitter account around 4 or 4:30 p.m. to set the record straight, his publicist said.

A statement from 20th Century Fox also put water on the Twitter fire: "We’ve been alerted that Chris Colfer’s Twitter account has been hacked. Rumors of his dismissal from 'Glee' could not be further from the truth. We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season."

It's a good thing -- "Glee's" upcoming sixth season will be its last. And Colfer, who plays endearing Kurt Hummel, is one of the original remaining cast members.
