Following the autopsy results that revealed that Cory Monteith’s cause of death was due to a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol, a rep for Lea Michele has released a statement on her behalf.
“Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she’s received from family, friends, and fans,” the statement said. “Since Cory’s passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them. They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory’s family.”
The Glee star was found dead on Saturday in a hotel in downtown Vancouver, Canada at the age of 31. During a news conference held on Saturday night, Canadian police noted that Monteith had been deceased for some time before his body was found, but foul play was not suspected. In March, He had voluntarily admitted himself in a treatment facility for substance addiction.
Monteith, who previously entered rehab for drug abuse when he was 19, was best known for playing Finn Hudson on the Fox musical dramedy, while Michele played his girlfriend on-screen and off. The pair had been dating for over a year prior to his death.
I have bought 2 group cards for fans to sign. One is for Lea and one is for the entire cast. I right now have them set up to be emailed to Lea’s PR for her card and to Ryan Murphy’s PR for the cast card and set it to do so a month from now. But I will be paying attention to when they all finally start filming S5 (as I don’t expect that to be next Monday now) and adjust the date accordingly. Also once we have an idea of when it will be able to be delivered I will be setting up my paypal for CCArmy4FACES to take donations to have both cards printed & delivered to the Paramount set so that Lea & the cast can have a professionally printed and bound copy of the cards. If I collect any extra money (the printed cards will cost 29.95 a piece I believe) all proceeds will be donated to Project Limelight in Cory’s honor. If you’d like to sign the cards you may do so by visiting the links below. – Chrisie
