I honestly am at a loss right now … I can’t even believe words I have to type out right now. Glee actor Corey Monteith has died. After a stint in rehab just a few months ago, we learn today … tragically … that Corey was found dead in a hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia Saturday night. At this point there is no official case of death but … FUCK, this has to be the shittiest news ever. Sadly, Monteith has struggled with substance abuse for some time now … and it would appear that his demons got the better of him. He was just 31 years old :( I don’t even know what to say. This news is so tragic, so unexpected … so … wrong. Cory is gone … just like that.
Glee star Cory Monteith was found dead at Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel Saturday, Vancouver police confirmed in a press conference late Saturday night. He was 31. Born in Calgary, Monteith began his acting career in Vancouver, and was cast as Finn Hudson on the Fox musical series when it debuted in 2009. Earlier this year, Monteith admitted himself into a facility for substance addiction, He was released in April. According to police, the actor was out Friday night with friends and returned to his room alone in the early morning hours. He died in his room on the 21st floor of the hotel, having checked in July 6. He was due to check out Saturday. When he missed his scheduled checkout time at noon, hotel staff went in to check. The cause of death was not immediately apparent. Police said there were no indications of foul play but would not discuss what, if anything, was found in room.
I’m really … crushed by this news. I knew that Cory was dealing with drug addiction but, damn, I never dreamed it would result in his sudden death like this. I really believed that he was working hard on his recovery but … man, his death like this is just hard to stomach. His Glee co-star and real life girlfriend Lea Michele has been by his side thruout his struggles, I cannot even begin to imagine the pain she must be enduring right now. We should send all of our love and prayers to Corey’s family and friends in their time of need. I just can’t believe he’s gone. Cory Monteith was so talented, so full of promise. I hope he is resting well right now. He will be missed.
