And now we have our answers!!!
She's staying strong because Cory Monteith is never far from her mind.
And now it seems the Glee starlet turned to crystals for some strength as she was spotted at LAX wearing what appears to be a healing crystal necklace. But that wasn't all that she was keeping close to her.
Lea was also spotted wearing that same diamond ring on her ring finger that has been popping up from time to time ever since Cory passed away.
We've heard they might have been engaged before his death or that maybe he was planning a proposal, so if that ring is from Cory, we hope it helps heal her heartache.
