Cory Monteith death: Lea Michele breaks silence after overdose of her boyfriend and Glee co-star
The actress posted a picture of the pair together, tweeting: “Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support. Cory will forever be in my heart.”
Michele, 26, had previously only spoken about her grief through a representative, who urged the public to respect Michele’s privacy, and gave details about how the actress was supporting Monteith’s family.
Monteith, 31, was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver on Saturday 13 July. An autopsy revealed he died of a heroin and alcohol overdose.
The actress also helped to arrange a memorial service for the cast and crew of Glee last week, which was held in a private location in Los Angeles.
