The saga of Finnchel was bound to come to an end at some point, but now it has in the worst possible manner. Yesterday, Glee star and Glee Project mentor Cory Monteith was found dead in Vancouver hotel. The cause remains unknown, but what is clear is that fans and friends of the actor are devastated.
Not long after his eemingly successful stint in rehab, Cory Monteith has passed away at just 31 years of age. This comes just a few months after the actor was released from a short stint in rehab. It is not yet known whether drugs were involved in his death, but authorities have said that foul play is not suspected.
Clearly, this is a very difficult time for Lea Michele, who had been standing strong as Cory’s girlfriend, even in the midst of his battle with drug addiction. Earlier this year, when it was announced that he was headed for rehab, Lea told People, “I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this.” Now, in the aftermath of her boyfriend’s passing, Lea’s rep has issued the following statement: ”We ask that everyone kindly respect Lea’s privacy during this devastating time.”
Also struggling with the news of Cory Monteith’s dead are his fellow Glee stars. Mark Salling, otherwise known as Puck, captured his sense of shock in a tweet that simply read, “no.” Dot-Marie Jones (or Coach Beiste) also expressed her grief in the following Twitter post: “I have no words! My heart is broken, Cory was not only a hell of a friend, he was one amazing man that I will hold close to my heart forever.”
Our thoughts are with the Cory’s friends and family members at this difficult time.
