The Glee cast continues to mourn the loss of actor and Glee Project mentor Cory Monteith. Especially distraught is Lea Michele, who, sources say, was hoping to wed and start a family with her longtime boyfriend.
This is a trying time for Lea Michele, the girlfriend of deceased star Cory Monteith and a fellow star on the hit show Glee. Lea had made a point of sticking with Cory through his difficulties with addiction, encouraging him to seek treatment in rehab. This dedication came, in part, from her commitment to building a future with the actor — a future that would require his sobriety.
According to an insider for Hollywood Life, Lea Michele had been busy planning her dream wedding shortly prior to her boyfriend’s death. The source says, “Even though [Cory Monteith] hadn’t proposed yet, Lea was positive they were going to get married and have kids together, there was no doubt in her mind that Cory was her soul mate.” This was true prior to Cory’s stint in rehab, but even more so after he was released.
The source adds that Lea viewed Cory as her “prince charming,” and is now really struggling with a combination of shock and sadness in the aftermath of his sudden death. But she’s certainly not alone, as her Glee castmates are also in mourning for their beloved fellow actor. And Lea’s friends and family have been making a point of staying by her side, making “sure she has a good base of people for support.”
We wish Lea Michele peace and healing during this difficult time. Feel free to share your best wishes for Lea in the comments section below.
