Well, this certainly helps explain why he was so receptive to her when she suggested he seek help in the first place!
Sources close to Lea Michele recently revealed that she was one of the big reasons her boyfriend and Glee co-star Cory Monteith was able to confront his issues with substance abuse and admit himself into a rehab facility, and apparently, that's only the tip of the iceberg when it comes what a good girlfriend she actually is!
"Lea is an excellent influence on him. She's good for him. She's really calmed him. They seem to compliment each other's personalities very well. They are always very affectionate and sweet to each other. Cory acts very protective of Lea. The two of them drank together, but drank in a way that seemed to be responsible. They both seemed in control and not messy. She would have been very supportive and encouraging for him to seek treatment. It seems like she is a very steady hand."
We couldn't be more thrilled to hear this!
Cory's obviously going to need a lot of support and good people around him as he fights this battle, and it's such a relief to know that someone's who's already done so much will be by his side, showering him with the love and affection he needs to overcome his issues!
Sadly, however, we think the days of drinking together are behind them both, regardless of how responsible they were!
But who needs that anyway when you have your life, your health, and someone who loves you unconditionally?!
Stay strong, boo! You're in our thoughts!
