Sadly Cory Monteith passed away on July 13 in a Vancouver hotel room. He was 31. His devoted girlfriend, Lea, wasn’t with him at the time of his death. A source close to the actor tells HollywoodLife exclusively that she is ‘devastated’ beyond belief.

Lea Michele, 26, and Cory Monteith began dating in early 2012 and had been together for a year and a half. The Glee songstress was clearly not expecting to receive the tragic news about the one she loves.

Cory Monteith’s Death — Lea Michele’s Reaction:

“She [Lea Michele] is absolutely hysterical and completely inconsolable,” a source close to the actor tells HollywoodLife exclusively. She is devastated beyond belief.”

At this time the cause of the actor’s death is yet to be determined and no foul play is suspected, however Cory was always very open about his struggle with substance abuse and began his second stint in rehab in March 2013 — and his devoted girlfriend bravely stood by his side during the difficult time. It’s clear that one of the people he was closest to, his loving girlfriend, had no idea that he might still be struggling with this addiction.

In fact just last week Lea took a quick girls trip to Cabo San Lucas, to celebrate the birthday of her friend and jewelry designer Jennifer Cohen. The Glee gal seemed so happy and carefree while having fun in the sun, snapping pics of her pedicure and sharing a slew of bikini pics on Instagram.

Cory Monteith’s Substance Abuse Struggle:

While the actor’s most recent stint in rehab was mere months ago, he first checked in for his addiction when he was 19. In an interview with Parade magazine back in 2011, he candidly addressed his struggles with substance abuse, saying he often stole money to be able to afford his addiction. “I was out of control," Cory said. "[I used] anything and everything, as much as possible. I had a serious problem."

Cory’s mother staged an intervention in order to help her teen get clean. "That's when I first went to rehab," he said — but his sobriety didn’t last long. "I did the stint but then went back to doing exactly what I left off doing."

Eventually the actor made the decision to get clean — and he said it was a life-changing decision. "I'm lucky to be alive," he admitted.

The actor was born and raised in Victoria, B.C., which isn’t far from Vancouver, where his body was discovered.

Our thoughts are with Lea and Cory’s friends and family during this sad time.
