cory monteith lea michele rep releases comment about death

We can't even imagine how hard this time is for Lea Michele.

After dating Cory Monteith for over a year, costarring with him on Glee, and being there for him during his recent stint in rehab, it has to be heartbreaking to lose him.

The actor was found dead yesterday at a Vancouver hotel, and people everywhere have been saddened by the unexpected and tragic passing.

Lea hasn't yet spoken out about losing her boyfriend, but her rep did release a brief statement:

"We ask that everyone kindly respect Lea's privacy during this devastating time."

We sincerely hope she gets the privacy she needs to mourn this death.

And we hope that she finds a healthy way to deal with it and heal from the pain.

Our thoughts are with Lea and the rest of Cory's family and friends.

    My heart breaks for Lea. This is just so unbelievably sad. People are so sadden by this news, and very rightfully so, what a talented and inspiring young man, and a son to two and a great friend to many. But, losing the love of your life, your other half… I can't even think about it. It's just so sad. My thoughts are with you Lea, and to the rest of his loved ones.

    I really can't even imagine what she's going through right now. It is so so heartbreaking. I still can't wrap my head around this cruel tragedy </3

    This is so sad for Lea & Cory's family & friends, etc but I don't understand why celebrities feel the need to make public statements about every aspect of their private lives. Why can't they just grieve privately with close friends and family (like we all do when we lose someone) instead of releasing statements or having their PR team do it? I'm sad for Lea but it's just a bit crass to release a statement. RIP Cory.

    Lea's the one who sent him to the EXTREMELY EVIL 12-Step RELIGIOUS AA/NA CULT Treatment Center….
    *
    The $15 BILLION DOLLAR A YEAR "FREE" 12-Step RELIGIOUS AA/NA CULT is KILLING PEOPLE with their WITCHCRAFT & SORCERY nonsense conjuring-up a make-believe "HIGHER POWER"…that does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

    Drug Addicts need REAL MEDICAL TREATMENT!

    Re: Kittens With Mittens – Probably because since they are famous, people are going to ask them no matter what so it's easier to release a statement to reporters rather then have them follow you around asking you the same questions over and over.

    Re: Kittens With Mittens

    I was thinking the same thing. "Please respect so and so's privacy…." isn't so much a "statement" as it is a canned message from PR that the celebrity in question had nothing to go with. Why even release it? It's not even out her, it's about the person who passed away.

    Re: shannoncooper – I suppose, but it's not as if the paps will stop asking questions because her rep asked for privacy. Those statements really don't do anything.

    Re: Kittens With Mittens – It's not crass. Lea didn't release a statement about what happened or how she feels - all she did was ask for her privacy and that was a necessity. Do you know how many people will be looking for pictures or for any info about how Lea is handling this? This incident puts a price on Lea's head, the paparazzi have no morals and sadly some of the fans are immature jerks. This statement was necessary - I just hope people listen to it!

    Re: Kittens With Mittens – She can't grieve privately like most people because unlike most people, she's famous. DUH.

    ANOTHER CELEB WHO LOST THE BATTLE AGAINST DRUGS… AMY WINEHOUSE, WHITNEY….



  13. 13

    Re: Common sense – She's actually grieving privately right now. There's no point for her rep to release a statement.



  14. 14

    I feel bad for her and his loved ones..He had everything going for him and he let drugs ruin not only his life, but others. It's still sad however also angers me.

    Re: Kippy – lea's rep had to ask for privacy no matter weather she gets it or not. I imagine she is too grief stricken to speak to anyone publicly about her feelings for corey. she is in shock as it happened so suddenly. I just hope the press gibe her the space she needs to try to heal from such a tragic event :(

    Re: Kittens With Mittens – if they don't release a staring they get hounded by the paparazzi/public looking for her "first words" since the tragedy. RIP Cory!! So sad:(

    Re: Kittens With Mittens – And when she steps out of her house she will have dozens of paparazzi waiting for her. That's not privacy.

    Please tell Cody and Lea fans to stop tweeting a picture of a woman crying over a flag-draped casket, it was not Lea but a military wife receiving her dead soldier's body. The constant viral sharing of this heartbreaking image is distasteful.

    Re: Stephie – I cant wrap my head around it either :( I feel sor lea and corys family and friends,its not going to be the same without him here,i wish I could take away leas pain :'( I respect her more because she wants privacy :) vgood on you lea

    R.I.P cory monteith…..your another bright star in the sky

  31. Jess says – reply to this

    Well, Perez, if you really hope her wishes will be respected, you could start by actually giving her that requested privacy and not writing a senseless article about her. I think we all could have guessed that she is devastated and wishes to be given space and left alone to grieve the death of her boyfriend. We didn't need you to write an article about it to confirm. Please let his girl grieve and take the spotlight off of her for a bit. It's the right thing to do. *Jess



  32. 32

    It figures Lea would make this all about her…..

  33. DumbBitchesAreDumb says – reply to this


    33

    Sad news. Cory was a great person.

    P.S. Some people in the comment section are dickheads and dumb bitches. I specially hate the dumb bitch saying 'Lea would make this all about herself'….Her rep comments = lea makes this all about herself. No comment = Lea's a heartless bitch… I guess all we can do is accept these bitches in our society, they are entertaining in their own way after all.

    I feel for her so much. I know the pain she is going through. My husband died 4 months ago. All day I kept thinking back on the first day and how I felt… It is pure pure pure HELL! And she will never be the same again :( My heart goes out to her, his family and the glee family. I used to watch glee with my husband.. its kind of hitting me hard :(



  35. 35

    It hasn't even been 24 hours fully, of course she hasn't made a fucking statement Perez. Jesus.

    I wonder who or wut he was sacrificed for now? Maybe lea's fame after all she is coming out with a new album. Attack me all you want you are all blindfolded kept in the dark and most of you know wut im saying but you'd rather chose to follow than think for yourselves. Keep in mind the zombie apocalypse has already begun. May this celebrity RIP

    Hillary, not sure what you have against them, they worked great with my stepson and now I have a happy almost 12 yr old granddaughter. Sorry if they did not work for you.

    Cory wasn't Lea's boyfriend, he was her fiancé
    They were getting married in two weeks :(

    absolutely devastating. I hope the paps allow her (and those who are grieving) space and time. Nobody deserves to feel such a loss.

    I feel so bad i cant imagine what lea is feeling and cory family

  41. debolisa says – reply to this

    I can imagine this must hard for her, be strong girl…. but I'm sad too …..oh no……



  42. 42

    ok, first i feel bad for his family because they're his family and then i feel bad for lea because i can't imagine something like that happening when two people are still in the bubble but family comes first and a lot of people seem to forget that. His parents have to bury their child. no parent should have to do that. my thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones at this time.

    Re: Be-Atch – you know, your name on here is really suiting. Stfu idiot



  47. 47

    Some of you people really need to get to grip with yourselves, this girl is just after losing her boyfriend the person who she loves! All of you should respect her wishes for privacy and somebody said and I quote "just another celebrity to drugs" and what I say to you is to grow up people have problems and its not right for you to speak like that! R.I.P Cory

    Re: Jess – The right thing to do for the homo is to line his pockets at the expense of others. You can't appeal to someone like him because he has no moral compass.
    .
    Re: Jess – Give us documentation of this, dumb shit, or shut up. I think he'd have married her if he'd stayed high the rest of his life; Lea Michele is a mean-spirited, ego-maniac twat with a hideous face. Did he have to settle for that?
    .
    Re: lee – He's not another bright star in the sky, he's another person who died too young, and if it was drugs, he did it to himself, which makes him a really stupid shit.
