Lea Michele Posts Birthday Tribute to Cory Monteith
May 11, 2014
Glee star Lea Michele took this Mother's Day to pay tribute to her former boyfriend Cory Monteith, who died last July from a drug/alcohol overdose.
"The biggest heart and most beautiful smile... In all of our hearts... We love you so. Happy Birthday," Lea wrote in a message on her Twitter on Sunday -- the day that Cory would have turned 32.
Cory and Lea's characters dated on Glee and the 27-year-old actress was also dating her co-star in real life at the time of Cory's death and had referred to him as her :true love."
Cory was found dead in July 2013 inside a Vancouver hotel room and his death was later attributed to "mixed drug toxicity" involving heroin and alcohol.
