Lea Michele Posts Birthday Tribute to Cory Monteith


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.
