Cory Monteith's Ex-Girlfriend Speaks About His Addiction Demons

No question Cory Monteith's loved ones are having a hard time coping with his untimely death.

No one, including those closest to him, could've guessed that Cory would lose his long battle with drug addiction — especially considering his recent voluntary rehab stint.

Cory's ex-girlfriend Mallory Matoush has come out of the wood work to confirm that Cory made a clear effort to keep his on-going struggle a secret.

Mallory explained:

"Cory kept me in the dark about his drug use. He told me about his teenage days and his past problems but he never used anything in front of me, ever. He was always so silly and funny. My favorite memory is when Cory was in town for Jimmy Fallon. We went for dinner after. He was still wearing what he wore for the interview. He was sitting on the couch in his hotel room the same way he sat on the show. I pointed it out and he was laughing hysterically for like 5 minutes. He would always make a joke about everything and was just a silly guy."

In fact, the only drug or alcohol consumption Mallory saw from the late Glee was a drink every now and then.

Mallory continued:

"Cory was so normal. I didn't even know who he was when I met him. I had to Google it because after the first night I stayed with him, I was on my way out of his hotel and there was a crowd of young girls waiting for him. They asked me if I had seen Cory Monteith inside the hotel and I was so confused."

We'll never know what was going through the beloved blossoming actor's head the moments leading up to his death, but we wish more than anything that he would've sought help before taking that last lethal hit.

Despite the fact that we know there is nothing ANYONE could've done, there is no doubt there will remain a dark cloud over Hollywood in Cory's heart wrenching absence.

If only his hidden demons weren't more powerful than his will to be clean and sober.

    So sick of this story. All of these "junkie stars" which are supposed to be role models for the young kids today are shameful. The worst part is what kind of girlfriend doesn't know the man she is supposedly going to marry shoots up? Come on people get real!

    To the girls calling this lady a whore - jealous much? Did it ever occur to you that maybe she feared people would be blaming Lea and others for not noticing that he was on drugs and would be angry? Maybe she was trying to attest to the fact that he wasn't obvious where it came to drugs and was defending Lea for not noticing.

    As LadyLeigh79 said, it's a testament to the wonderful person he was - she didn't have a bad thing to say about him.

    Re: mezzalenko – What a wonderful comment. In the online world it is so easy to make nasty comments, that comments like these are really memorable. Not sure if the term 'coming out of the woodwork' was appropriate in this story.

    Re: Slugggo – This isn't the girl that was going to marry him. Inform yourself of facts before you talk shit, moron.

    “Thank you for making my wish true! I was totally devastated when Frank left me. It was like all my world vanishing into sorrow and pain. But your kind words when I first emailed you gave me hope. I felt how sincere, honest and authentic you were from your first email. I know it sounds weird but out of all the casters I contacted, ekakaspelltemple@yahoo.com you were the only one to give me that impression of being so true and caring. More than your words, it’s the fantastic work you accomplished for me that I will keep in mind. You brought my lover back and you made all my wishes come true. He’s now loyal, pays attention to me, he offers me flowers every Sunday, and we often go out at the cinema or at the restaurant. I will be forever thankful for turning my life from hell to heaven
