Lea Michele breaks silence on Cory Monteith's death

The last time Lea Michele's Twitter followers saw an update from the "Glee" star was on July 13, when the unthinkable happened. The 26-year-old's on- and off-screen boyfriend, Cory Monteith, was found dead at 31.

In the days since, Michele's co-stars have one by one expressed their grief over losing Monteith. On July 29, Michele broke her silence and joined the chorus with a statement of her own.

"Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support," she tweeted, along with a happy photo of herself with Monteith.

"Cory will forever be in my heart."

Monteith and Michele had starred on "Glee" since its 2009 premiere, portraying the unlikely pair of jock Finn Hudson and overachiever Rachel Berry. Their evolving relationship and its eventual romantic turn was a bedrock storyline on the Fox comedy, and their off-screen lives soon mimicked those of their characters.

The pair publicly began dating in 2012, and Michele stuck by his side when Monteith voluntarily entered rehab earlier this year.

"I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this," she said when he sought treatment for substance addiction. "I am grateful and proud that he made this decision."

On July 13, Monteith was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver, Canada. It was later discovered that the actor died from a mixed drug toxicity that included heroin and alcohol.
