Cory Monteith, who starred in the hit show Glee, was found dead Saturday in a Vancouver, Canada, hotel room, according to police.


Lea Michele (M), his girlfriend and Glee co-star, is "devastated" by Cory's passing. According to, Lea found out about Cory's death by telephone, with a source explaining, "Lea broke down in tears when she heard the news. Cory was her whole world. They've been through a lot together."


Canadian authorities say an autopsy is expected to be performed on Monday to determine what caused the death of Cory Monteith (mahn-TEETH’).

The actor who played Finn Hudson in the hit TV series “Glee” was found dead Saturday in a hotel room in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Police say there’s no indication of foul play.

The 31-year-old actor had a history of addiction and checked himself into a treatment facility just last April.

Lea Michele (LEE’-uh mih-SHEHL’), his “Glee” co-star and real-life girlfriend, told People magazine at the time that she loved and supported him and was proud he was seeking help.

Monteith had openly talked about struggling with addiction since he was a teenager, saying he had a serious problem and took just “anything and everything.” He told Parade magazine in 2011 that he was “lucky to be alive.”
