Glee actor Cory Monteith passed away on July 13 due to an overdose of heroin and alcohol and since that time, his co-star and real life girlfriend Lea Michele has remained silent about his passing … until now. Lea posted a short message of thanks to her followers on Twitter along with a cute photo of Lea and Cory in happier times. Click below to read Lea‘s message in full.
Before she posted this tweet earlier today, Lea‘s last communication on Twitter was posted on July 13 just hours before the world learned of Cory‘s death. The last time that we saw the couple together here on the blog was back in May when the couple got all amorous at a hockey game together. I cannot imagine the pain Lea must be enduring in the wake of Cory‘s death. There are reports that the couple were planning to get married but, even if that wasn’t the case, they were truly in love and had been for a long time. I truly hope that the support and love that Lea has been getting from family, friends and fans has been helpful in her time of need. Now that Glee is going back into production without Cory, I’m sure many members of the show’s cast are finding ways to move forward with their lives. It’s nice to hear from Lea, it’s nice to hear she’s doing well.
