Heartbroken Lea reveals
The actress struggles to cope
with the death of her boyfriend
– and their wedding dream
t was 10pm on July 13 when Lea
Michele’s world fell apart. After trying
unsuccessfully to reach her co-star
boyfriend Cory Monteith, she received
the phone call that would change her
life forever – Cory was dead. “Lea completely
lost her mind [after hearing of Cory’s tragic
overdose],” a source tells Us Weekly. “She went
crazy, screaming and crying until 3am.”
After almost two years of dating, insiders
say the pair were more in love than ever,
and planning their wedding. “They were
about to be married,” Lea’s grandfather
Albert Sarfati tells Star magazine.
A friend says Lea had “no doubt in her
mind that Cory was her soulmate,” and
While Lea relaxed in Mexico with jewellery designer BFF
Jennifer Cohen on what insiders believe may have been
her hens’ party, Cory was spotted in the seedier parts of
Vancouver. Despite his recent stint in rehab, celebrity news
site TMZ reports he “knocked back beers” with friends
when they stopped off at motorcycle store The Shop.

was looking forward to their future together.
“She had her whole life planned with Cory,”
the pal tells celebrity news site Hollywood Life.
“Lea was positive they were going to get
married and have kids together.”
Amid reports their wedding was as close as
two weeks away, Cory headed to Vancouver
to spend time with his friends for what some
suggest may have been a bucks’ party.
Meanwhile, Lea enjoyed a girls’ trip to Cabo
San Lucas in Mexico – rumoured to have been
part of her hens’ celebration – and was even
sporting a sparkler on her ring
finger. On July 10, just three days
before the actor’s untimely death,

press, the 26-year-

those closest to Lea saying she is “devastated
beyond belief”. “She is absolutely hysterical and
completely inconsolable,” a source reports.
The heartbroken actress has even been calling
Cory’s voicemail just to hear his voice. “It is as
heart-wrenching as it sounds,” adds the insider.

His double life
Cory kept his demons hidden. Former girlfriend Mallory Matoush
(below) tells Us Weekly he was a “happy guy” whose only vice was
the occasional drink. “Cory kept me in the dark about his drug use.
He told me about his teenage days and his past problems but he
never used anything in front of me, ever,” she insists.
Sources say visiting his native Vancouver caused Cory to fall
back into old habits. “Clubs would send cars to get him to come in
and once he arrived, there were always people who could hook him
up,” an insider tells Perez Hilton. “His former dealers would always
know when he was in town and would
make fun of him for stopping taking
drugs, which made him do it again to
appear cool in their eyes.”
Lea and Cory’s relationship started
like a fairytale, with an instant spark
when they were cast on Glee in 2009.
“She just kind of had a different
energy than everyone else there,”
Lea was equally smitten. “I don’t
even remember a time when he wasn’t
my boyfriend,” she told Marie Claire in
2012. “I feel really, really settled... I feel
like the luckiest girl in the world.”
But instead of her
dream wedding, Lea
is now planning a
memorial service for
the man she loves.
“Cory’s mum is not
involved at all in the planning – it’s all Lea,”
reports news site TMZ.
Experts say the grieving star is likely to
need therapy to overcome her loss. “It’s very
important Lea learns how not to blame herself
for the tragic loss of Cory,” addiction specialist
Steven Orenstein tells Hollywood Life.
Those who knew the couple say they were
even more in love than they seemed. “He said
she made him a better person,” All The Wrong

“She was so sure
it was all going

And Cory was just
as enamoured with his
bride-to-be. “He would
always say how lucky he
was to have Lea,” adds
the insider. “They both
just adored each other
and were planning for
a long and happy life
together. It’s so hard
to believe it’s over.”
After meeting on the
set of Glee back in 2009,
Lea and Cory quickly
became best friends.
The future of glee
Emergency meetings have reportedly been called to figure out how
Glee will handle the departure of Cory’s character Finn Hudson,
with some insiders saying a musical memorial episode could be on
the cards. But however producers choose to proceed, it’s likely the
fifth season’s September 19 premiere will be pushed back a month.

I can do anything.”
After standing by Cory when he went into
rehab in March – telling People mag at the time,
“I love and support Cory and will stand by him
through this. I am grateful and proud he made
this decision” – sources say Lea had no idea
Cory had relapsed just three months later.
The star was open
about his struggle
with drugs as a teen,
confessing to Parade
magazine in 2011 that
he did “anything and
everything, as much
as possible” when he
was younger. “I’m
lucky on so many
counts – I’m lucky
to be alive,” he said.
But despite his
determination to stay
sober, in the end Cory’s
addiction won out. The
autopsy report confirmed he died of a lethal
combination of alcohol and heroin. “There
is no evidence to suggest Mr Monteith’s
death was anything other than a most tragic
accident,” the coroner’s report states.
On July 16, his family held a cremation for
Cory in Vancouver, following a private viewing
The final performance
In an eerie case of life imitating art, Cory plays a drug addict
in his last movie McCanick. Director Josh C Waller tells the Los
Angeles Times, “[Cory] said he wanted to tap into things from
his youth that he hadn’t been able to use as an actor yet.”
