Cory Monteith's Death Blamed On 'Friend' Who Helped Him Score Vancouver Drugs

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.Sad SadCory Monteith

cory monteith friend scored drugs for overdose

Not what you want to hear about someone's tragic death.

But it's sounding like Cory Monteith had a friend who played a role in his sudden death in Vancouver this past weekend.

It's been well-known that Cory struggled with drug addiction, but things seemed to be on the mend after his latest rehab stay. Unfortunately, it sounds like there was someone in Vancouver who was nothing but harmful to the Glee star's recovery process.

A source close to the situation commented:

"You don’t have to look very far in Vancouver to find the person who gave Cory his heroin. There is a despicable individual … who claims he was a friend of Cory. Allegedly, he was the one who gave Cory the heroin, according to [people] close to him."

It is even reported that the so-called friend bought Cory a glass pipe, which was allegedly something he had requested as the source added:

"Cory knew what he was doing but wouldn’t buy his own drugs, so allegedly he asked his … friend to score it."

We sure wish this person hadn't been in his life if all these allegations are true.

Whatever might have gone down with Cory's overdose, we hope others learn from this tragedy.

Our thoughts are still with those closest to him.

    oh horseshit! bottom line,,,he decided he'd rather get high than stay sober/clean. All addicts/drunks who die do so at their own choice, FACT

    Yea sure…. blame the friend who got his buddy drugs. Because the junkie that did it obviously is totally not responsible for his own actions.

    Having done drugs before in various levels of excess I would never blame my friend for getting me the drugs if I died, I would blame my own issues with them



  3. 3

    Cory was a junkie… Hollywood supports junkies just look around. You can't blame other people for his death. Nobody forced him to take the drugs.

    This is pretty ridiculous. Yes, it's very sad that Monteith has died. However, taking drugs is no one's fault but the individual's. Quite horrible to blame someone else for Cory's actions.



  5. 5

    Did someone force him to take the drugs? He must take responsibility for his actions. If it hadn't been his friend, it probably would have been some dodgy lowlife.



  6. 6

    So blame the "friend" not the city.
    Stop the spin machine.
    Drugs are EVERYWHERE.

    Nowadays, you don't have to look very far anywhere to get heroin. Fact is, he was a user, was in a very bad state of mind and tragically died.
    You can't blame it on anyone. It's just another example of how dangerous drugs are, again, again, again…..

    Oh please- if it wasn't this 'friend', it would have been another getting him his drugs.



  11. 11

    It's all about personal responsibility. There will always be people who don't have your best interests at heart, the way to stop that is to stay away from them. Sounds like going to Vancouver was a bad idea all the way around. Cory made the bad decisions, he paid for them with his life.

    my sister and father are both addicts (not herion) ive never done drugs. I do know that no matter what, when my sister wants to get high she is going to. NO one has to force it on her. Just because corey was a big star doesn't mean he wasn't a JUNKIE ADDICT who made that choice to go get that herion and use it!



  15. 15

    It doesn't matter who gave him the drugs. In the end it was HIS choice and no one elses. Period. Unless they physically forced the drugs inside of his body, then it was Cory's ultimate choice in the end. A tragic choice, and unnecessary choice, but HIS choice.

    I'm not blaming the friend because everyone is responsible for their own actions but if u claim ur somebody's friend and u know that person had problems with drugs in the past don't give them heroin

  17. Prick says – reply to this

    Re: raypearson – no NOT fact u ignorant prick. Addiction is a disease…so u basically just said everyone who has cancer dies coz it's their choice..fuck u u asshole.

    Sorry to say it again, but he bought the drugs, no matter who it came from, he fell off the wagon, he stuck the needle in his arm, he died.

    People need to take some responsibility for their actions. Yeah, there are enablers, but when it comes right down to it, Cory Montieth put a needle into his own arm.

  19. GrowUp says – reply to this


    19

    He was a 31 year old MAN, not a child. If anything, he didn't want to get the drugs himself because he might have been recognized. So sick of everyone else being blamed when someone dies from drugs. Lindsey Lohan, Amanda Bynes, etc are NOT kids anymore. They are in their late 20's and they make their own decisions. If they die from drugs, it's their own fault. Adults are responsible for their own lives.

    20

    wth? So, if I went home and connected with a friend I used to do drugs with in order to buy some now, he would get in trouble, not me? That is kind of ridiculous. The only one responsible for every single drug I've ever ingested is me, I chose to do it, I bought it, I took it…that's it, no one else. Same is probably true for Cory…unless they were injecting him with heroin and force feeding him alcohol against his will, cory is the only one responsible here.

    I hate comments like that…Cory was a big boy he knew right from wrong. He did it and he owns the choices he made….No one else did it…Stop the blame game.



  26. 26

    Re: raypearson – AMEN. Nobody reported that this friend held a gun to his head and forced him to do it. PLUS, if he decided to hang out with this kid, he had drugs on his mind already. You don't seek out people who have gotten you drugs in the past if you plan on staying clean. This was his own fault and nobody else's. If one person won't get you the drugs, you'll find someone else.

  27. kay says – reply to this


    27

    There is no one else to blame in this situation but Cory. No one ask him or put a gun to his head and told him to take the drugs. People who are grieving are just trying to put the blame on someone else than face the facts, end of story



  28. 28

    I read online that Lea used to find Cory's drugs and shove them up her stink box so he wouldn't find them. So she had to have dirty gross fece stained butt sex with him instead. And then afterwards when she went to the bathroom to douche her rectum clean of his spooge, she rummaged inside of her gash and flushed the drugs down the toilet.

    People always want to blame someone else - I don't really think it's possible to make someone else do heroin unless they are up for it. RIP Cory Monteith. It is so sad that someone so talented and so young has left this world.

    Last time I was in Vancouver I was at a huge park playgrounds, dog walking, etc…and a man was shooting something into his arm under a tree.
    Drugs are everywhere!!

  31. George Child says – reply to this


    31

    At the end of the day, he wanted the drugs, he paid for them, he took them. Why are you trying to pawn the blame off on someone else? It was because of his actions that he died, nobody elses.



  32. 32

    Addiction is a tough thing to break - studies have shown that it can actually rewire your brain. I feel sympathetic for those that don't overcome it. It's true that this "friend" of Cory's was anything but. I was thinking that if I was a loved one of his I would be so angry towards the individuals that enabled his addiction problem. THAT said, according to the account it was Cory that asked for the score. In my opinion this makes him even more responsible than, say, if he was around friends were doing drugs in front of him and pressured him into joining in. It is tragic that he was not able to overcome his addiction, but let's not say that Cory was completely an innocent victim in this.

    Drugs and Vancouver go hand in hand.

    Typical Perez….blame someone else for the choice/decision Cory made. He was an addict. He is responsible for his choices. Stop the BS.

    This whole thing makes me want to become a cop and put these drug-dealing bastards behind bars.



  36. 36

    Re: Prick – you cant compare those two. addiction is a ILLNESS not a disease. there is a difference, it is a mental illness.



  37. 37

    To the dumbass who wrote this article: Cory made several decisions before ingesting the heroin that inevitably took his life. He chose to withdraw money. He chose to contact a person who he knew could get him the heroin. He chose to pay that person money (probably more than the cost of a hit - to keep quiet). He chose to give that person specific instructions of what he wanted. He chose to accept the drugs. He chose to wait for the right time and place. He chose the amount/dosage of heroin he wanted to blow his mind and get high and wasted. Then he chose to take the heroin. What part of any of those choices did his "despicable friend" play a part of? Stop making him a martyr. Its really sad what happened, it really truly is - but it all happened because of CHOICES HE MADE.

    NO
    Someone should have been by Cory's side to support him and give him proper advice! period
    Addiction is a disease… a person cannot make decisions when the disease has taken over the brain! period

    If someone had just been there to say NO… Cory think about what you are about to do… someone to intervene before it cost him his life.

    DRUGS should not be everywhere. period

    Re: Prick – no DICKHEAD. I've been clean since 1981, know way more about addiction than you do. certainly it is a disease, but the ONLY ONE that YOU have control over. HE decided HE wanted to use, one one else. Us drunks and junkies must learn that WE and only WE

Open your brain and use it. Your inane bullshit about cancer is just stupid and nonsensical. BTW I am a cancer survivor as well. in 2 words,,,fuck off.

    Re: Prick – No, everyone who gets cancer dies, my neighbor has been cancer free for several years now.
    On topic, some friend! But I agree no one forced him to take it. Heroin, ugh, cannot imagine ever using that (besides I hate needles).

  43. Evie says – reply to this


    43

    His friend shouldn't be blamed for Corey's own choice. Even though a good friend wouldn't provide you with drugs in a state like that (dude is obviously a horrible friend), but if it wasn't a friend, Corey could have gotten it from someone else. If you're that determined to get drugs, someone will eventually provide you with it. So if Corey's friend hadn't given him the drugs, Corey would have found someone else to. Or maybe not, maybe it was a test for him. Either way, it's a tragic case.

    As someone just out of Rehab he should of had a sponsor or someone to be accountable too to help when he had the craving of the addiction. His friend did not help in his path to recovery but neither did Cory…I honestly believed he tryed to stay clean but the system and the demons failed him…I think if he had a sponsor to help when the cravings were there he could of got through this and he may of asked for the drug with no intention to take it too see if he could risist it but the demons won…he needed more help then just the rehab, and if the rehab was cold turkey instead of methodone program he needed extra help to not relaps…yes cory made a bad choice…who are we to know what went through his mind leading up to taking the drug…but his 'friend' should of been a real friend and helped him recover not relaps…if anything is learnt from this it's we need to focus on people after rehab and staying clean and not just the rehab..

    Sometimes, when I see these comments that people say just to be smart and funny I wonder why is my brother gone and these people are still here? My brother would never have said a bad thing about anyone. Same with Cory, a guy who helped with programs that helped people train for jobs instead of getting a handout from the government, a guy who advocated for human rights, a guy who was involved with helping children and the needy. What have the smart asses on these comments done?

    There not blaming his friend 100 percent but they were saying that it his friend didn't help him recover after rehab. If he was a really good friend he would of said abs not I'm notgettong you drugs your going back to rehab and he also should of called lea Michele . But he's so called friend didn't which made his friend partly blamed for his dealth . Yes cory knew what he was doing he admitted he lnew. But why are people only remembering him for the bad stuff when he did so many good stuff to help people around the world . Rember him for the good things he did nog for the addiction he had .

  51. Anna says – reply to this


    51

    You guys, nobody here is saying Coryhad no fault in his addiction, he did and he knew! What you should consider is that 'this so called friend' should not address himself as so. Friends have your back, and don't push you beyond the limit if they know your weaknesses! After rehab, pretty much everyone would know that a heavy dose would mostly kill you! I boohoo all those "so called friends" I've seen in the pictures giving him beers etc. If you were an addict, and a good person as well, no matter how bad your addiction is and how responsible you are for your actions, wouldn't you want your FRiENDS to help you get out if it instead of OD? Wouldn't you, as a friend, try to keep one clean if you knew he has a problem? No blaming on anyone here, just do no address as friends please! They surely were NOT ones!

    People are so ridiculous…how many of you are even able to stick to your healthy diets? Pausing for a moment to stop shoveling chips and icecream into your mouths? Quit smoking? Hell, do your homework everyday and properly study. How often has one split second of weakness ruined the entire thing for you or at least ruined the day? Cory started using drugs when he was a kid, not an adult that's when the addiction set in. My guess is he didn't just seek help twice either. Addiction is a lifelong battle…you will always be an addict and always be aware you are an addict. To the guy who has been clean since 1981 and had had cancer grats on thinking you are better than everyone else this doesn't make you the most knowledgeable by default you don't know anyone else's life here…don't presume you do…but I congratulate you on your triumph of life over death. Heroin is a hell of a drug. For all anyone knows his "friend" could have been an addict too he sure as shit wasn't his babysitter but while Cory's actions were his own his "friend" obviously didn't do him any good.

  55. Angel says – reply to this


    55

    I'm sure the friend will blame him/herself for the rest of their life! But in truth you have to take responsibility for your own actions & Cory certainly knew what he was doing was not "on the sober path"! He was 31 - not 16 although he might've had the maturity of a teen.. He was still a GROWN MAN!
    No one could have "saved" him - it just WASNT meant to be!
    You DO DRUGS /YOU DIE! End of story!

    Re: kay – the friend was also doing heroin im 95% sure, otherwise he wouldnt have gotten it. also im sure this was just another normal scorechore for just another average day for both of them. chances are it wasn't the day or thee shot cory relapsed with. i bet he hadnt been clean for awhile. i know becaaause i know how heroin addiction works.

    57

    Re: Beth – thank you! That is the bottom-line!
    He was not a child or a teen (even if he acted like one) and to blame ANYONE is ludicrous, by any definition!
    My question is this: WHY did he want to escape reality so badly? My life sucks bc I am chronically ill & in horrid pain .. But that guy? Was Hollywood too "real" for him? As fake as Holluwood is.. I can only shake my head!

  58. tater nager says – reply to this


    58

    Re: Jenna – why do you think it him getting high on that particular occasion was because he was trying to escape reality? he may have wanted to do heroin because a; he was dope sick and was trying to get well but happened to overcompensate and surprise! instead of a fix he o.d.'d or b; he thought about getting high on dope to enhance the occasion. people dont always abuse drugs to escape reality. heroin is an extremely pleasurable high thats why people do it. it feels amazing enough people are willing to risk losing everything for the sensation. lets not forget.



  59. 59

    STOP MAKING A VICTIM FROM HIM AND OTHERS LIKE WHITNEY. IT WAS THEIR CHOICE, NO ONE MADE THEM DO HEROIN. I KNOW THAT DRUGS KILL, SO I DONT CARE IF MY FRIEND OR WHOEVER OFFERS ME TO TRY, I WONT DO THAT. HE DIED CAUSE HE WAS A JUNKY AND THE ONLY ONE TO BLAME FOR IT IS HIMSELF

  61. 61

    Whatever happened to being responsible for your own actions?? Blaming the friend who scored drugs for him is kind of phucked up. Did the friend also shoot heroin in his veins or put the straw and foil to his face?? No. This guy knew he was playing with fire…everyone who does drugs knows there is a risk of overdose. So blaming the friend is really petty and also really mean.



  62. 62

    Re: teeter totter – You don't have to inject it intravenously. You can smoke it off a piece of foil, or even eat it (yuck!!!). Heroin is everywhere, even in the smallest hick towns of middle America. In fact, I bet you could find hard drugs in a small town easier than in a larger city. In small towns, everyone knows a friend who knows a friend who has dope. It's sad, but true. Anyway, he was a grown ass man, he chose to seek out H and knew the risks invloved. If his "friend" didn't help him get it, I'm sure he would have just hopped a plane to LA to get it…all it takes is a plane ticket and a flight.

  64. Karina says – reply to this


    64

    Im not agree with drugs and I know that when you are an adult you must take responsability for your OWN actions. Anyway, Cory's case is so different. He wasnt like every celebrity in Hollywood. He started to consume drugs when he was 12 or 13 years old. (Do you really think a kid of 12 know what he is doing?) is a dangeours age to take decisions if you dont have supervision, of course bad company influences adults and in this case to a kid. and we all know that bad friends play a huge role when you are a child.
    He died being an adult (of course he knew how to get drugs) but his body was involved for 18 years of drugs. that's how drugs work… First you try it, then you are an addict and it becomes a disease. You cant stop so easy! Do you think he started to consume because he wanted? there are so many aspects that you should think about it. His father abandoned him when he was 7, his single mother needed to work for her 2 kids… so many things to consider before judge. Most of you have friends and if they start to make jokes about you, I pretty sure you can do something stupid to show them that you are a big boy or girl.. including try drugs.

    Im not saying he is a hero. I just admire people like cory.. He struggles with addiction without hurting others (like some of you), he was generous (he helped 3 charities), he touched many lives… he inspired people to be better. he never said to young people: you can consume drugs and be cool. he never posted a pic in his social networks smoking or naked (like Rihanna) becuase he knew his role and what he represented to his fans.

    You willl never be forgotten Cory. Now you are resting in peace.

    Re: tater nager – He was 31 when he died… but 12 years old when he started in drugs. Do you think a kid of 12 years can take responsability by his actions?? I dont think so. He had 18 years struggling with addiction. Please dont talk about someone that you know !!

  67. Karina says – reply to this


    67

    Re: GrowUp – SERIOUSLY?? You compare Lindsey and Amanda with Cory??? shame on you. I never heard that Cory was arrested for driving like a crazy man, or was posting nude photos or posting photos smoking in his social networks. or photos under the influence of drugs! I never heard that Cory was insulting people around him. He died when he was an adult… but he started when he was a kid… just 12 years old when he didnt know what he was doing and before he could imagine he will be a celebrity. He had 18 years struggling with addiction.. is not easy.

    I heard that Cory helped 2 charity organization, he said to his fans: Stay out of drugs and problems. Im lucky to be alive, dont try it! I knew the Cory who inspired so many lives throught songs… He respected his fans and what he represented. I knew a sweet canadian boy who struggling with addiction and lost the battle.

    72

    They should print the name of this so-called friend! I am sure this person not only procured the drugs for Cory - he encouraged him to take them! He is probably an addict himself and got himself a fix for free when he got drugs for Cory or he was a dealer! I have read other articles saying the dealers would ridicule Cory for wanting to stay clean, that club owners would send cars to bring him to clubs to bring in people, that so-called friends would encourage Cory's partying because going out with Cory guaranteed top treatment and lots of girls! It seems as though Cory was surrounded by leeches when he was in Canada! Heroin is hard enough to kick without people actively trying to convince you to keep using!

    Re: goodtasteishardtofind – Cory wasn't a grown man who decided to do drugs. He was a 7 year old kid who started having trouble coping when his parents split and who was on drugs by the age of 13. Cory got hooked when he was too young to know what he was doing or to understand that doing heroin is making a life choice. Cory struggled with his addiction for most of his life but he needed friends who wanted what was best for him not friends who wanted to use him.

    74

    i dont blame Cory entirely. Whatever possessed him to take drugs when he was 13, we dont know. But you cant say that as a kid he was totally responsible for what happened to him. Thats when the addiction started, hes not like others who start using after fame. Still though, it was a stupid choice for a 13 year old to make. Loved Finn Hudson . R.I.P <3

    Re: NO – do you have an effective way on how to make it so drugs aren't everywhere? The better option is better education. Instead of lies and scare tactics that have been proven to increase drug use (like DARE) kids need actual straight facts. The foundation needs to be drugs are not good for you, you should never do them, of course. But, to prevent stuff like this there needs to be some honesty about which drugs are worse and how to take them in the safest way possible and such. Cause obviously just say no is a complete and utter ridiculous failure.

    Re: Prick – comparing drug addiction to cancer victems is an insult to cancer victems. the drug addicts had a choice … .say NO the first time .. and they wouldn't have this issue. simple as that. I hate this entire 'its a disease' bullshit. DON'T DO IT IN THE FIRST PLACE AND YOU WON'T GET THE DISEASE. the poor people with cancer didn't have the luxury of simply saying 'no'

    Re: Jillian – it was 100% possible for cory to have just said 'no' the first time .. and I love cory … but addicts had a first time they said 'yes' and they simply should have just said 'no' …..

    I have never used drugs either. But, since Cory's death, I wanted to understand how drug use works and it was a sad experience for me. Addiction is a terrible terrible thing. Like many things, your minds your worst enemy. I feel so sad for this death. One thing that I don't understand (only my opinion) is why was Cory in Canada for 8 days alone. Where was Lea? I'm sorry, but something is just not adding up here. She wasn't told about his death until 10:00 at night on the day that he was returning home. Don't you think it's funny that she/he had spoken about his arrival time or such? Something is missing here, not sure what but something. He went to Japan alone and straight to Van Couver alone……

    I'm not sure if Cory had any friends in Canada. True friends have your back. I know that he was 31 and it was his choice but true friends tell you what's what and they carry you when need be. I have some and I know some. Their/our well being is most important. Why didn't anyone contact Lea…his mother…Ryan Murphy…anyone. He was well known and they could have found someone and said "we need you here..Cory is in trouble…hurry". And Lea can not tell me that she did not know that Cory was using again because he turned into a skeleton again right before our eyes. 31 or not, they need constant supervision for quite some time.

    Cory was on the mend but he did have an addiction, and trust me those are not easy to
    overcome, especially when its put right in your face. Unfortunately Cory was not able to say no to his demons and yes he did have a choice. but at the same time I don't believe Cory asked someone to "score" drugs for him….this so called friend was the junkie and put it right in his face and if he was already drinking, you are not thinking clearly and it is easy to say yes. The so called friend should have said NO for him. Thats what friends do. They look after each other. I thought something was fishy. If Cory was wanting to do drugs, why not while he was in his hotel room? Privately! Everyone has demons to overcome but some of us are not as lucky to overcome them. R.I.P. Cory Monteith…You will be loved and remembered for the awesome actor and singer on GLEE as we all knew you. I watch your videos on FOX all the time. You will never be forgotten!!!

    Re: Sharon – I agree that Lea had to have known…they were inseparable…except when he was in Canada…and I agree someone should have known and done something about it..Corey was just getting back to himself….Now that he's gone and there is a whole new cast… I dont even want to watch the show anymore. They should have continued with the original cast moving to new york some doing their own thing and rachel and curt at the school. It worked for the original 90210. GLEE could have done something similar.

    Re: Jillian – If cory was a junkie he would not have been able to act let alone doing the choreography and singing. I was shocked when he went to rehab in the spring. I have known people on heroin and Cory definitely did not fit the description. Junkies lose everything

    Yes, maybe it was Cory's own actions that caused his tragic passing. BUT when asked to score for a friend who's had past addiction issues & already completed a few stints in rehab ANY REAL FRIEND WOULD HAVE SAID NO, reminded him of all he had to lose & maybe even have contacted others in Corys inner circle. That's what a real friend would have done- Real "friends" do not score drugs for someone who they know is in recovery!

    I'm SICK & TIRED of people giving their opinion when it's blatantly obvious they know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about addiction.

    Re: Natalie – I agree, but the truth is none of that adds up to Cory being a full blown addict. He very well may have gone into rehab because he had used again (even if it was just a few times) It's very common for addicts to relapse as addiction is a lifelong illness (yes, it IS an illness) which has to be fought every day. Being in Vancouver alone was extremely detrimental to his recovery process because it was while living there (long before Glee) that he was using & that would have been a HUGE trigger within itself. As for him going into rehab in the spring, I'm not at all surprised. Cory was very honest about his past struggle with addiction & filming "McCanick" in which he plays a drug addict, was another potential trigger (as I believe filming MTV's series "Gone Too Far" was for Adam DJ AM Goldstein) I believe the film wrapped in September & by early spring he was back in treatment. At the end of the day, it's all just incredibly heartbreaking but hopefully he's tragic passing doesn't underscore all that he accomplished in his short 31 years.

    I dont think people should blame the friend. If that friend didnt get it for him, he would've purchased the drugs another way. Cory's fault…no one else. I can't wait for the premier tonight. Love Lea

    A regular everyday Joe/Jane, if cheat, steal, drugs, or anything terrible your name is tarnished and everyone will distance themselves and say all the most hateful things. But this guy Cory Hollywood talks as if he died of cancer. Come on Hollywood, yes he was an good actor but quit praising the guy when he committed an act that is looked down upon by society. It really blows my mind that television over-hyped the guy and down play his addiction or "demons".

    The police should have charged the dealer and anyone involved in getting Cory the heroin with reckless endangerment at the very least! Maybe this would send a message to other vermin who prey on people's addictions and weaknesses!
