Following the death of her boyfriend Cory Monteith, Lea Michele is inconsolable after his death. As we reported early this morning Cory was found dead in a hotel room from a suspected drug overdose.
Glee star Lea’s rep released a statement to People Magazine asking that everyone respect her privacy. The rep said, “We ask that everyone kindly respect Lea’s privacy during this devastating time.”
Cory had voluntarily admitted himself into a treatment facility for substance addiction in March 2013. His rep confirmed, Cory had, “voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction.” At the time Lea said she she loved and supported him and was proud he was going to rehab. She said, “I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this.”
On April 26th, 2013 less than one month after he entered rehab he left saying he had completed the program. Once he left rehab he tweeted to his fans, “Sending out big love to everyone. thank you for the continued support! It means the world to me! :)”
Michele must be devastated they were dating for over a year, she supported him when he was in rehab and they reunited when he got out and she was very happy.
Our thoughts go out to Michele at this difficult time.
