Lea Michele is remembering her late fiancé and Glee costar Cory Monteith, who passed away from a drug overdose in his hotel room on July 13, 2013.
It has been a year since Monteith’s passing, and Michele has shown remarkable fortitude and personal strength while coping with her loss. Monteith had reportedly struggled with drug abuse since adolescence and Michele represented hope and new beginnings to the actor.
Monteith’s father has respect and love for Michele and understands the need to continue with life. “She's just getting to the top of her career and I don't expect her to go out and do it alone," he said. "She should enjoy life. She had a good time when she was with Cory, from what I understand, but life's gotta go on.”
