LEA MICHELE “has been grieving” with boyfriend CORY MONTEITH‘s family following the actor’s tragic passing, according to the latest Hollywood news.
While a lot of celebrities and “Glee” co-stars have expressed their grief and sorrow on Twitter over Cory‘s tragic and untimely death, his girlfriend Lea Michele has yet to make a public statement-although her rep did release one immediately after news broke of his death, asking the media to respect the actress’ privacy at this difficult time.
Following the results of Cory‘s autopsy, which revealed that the cause of his death was a “mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol,” Lea‘s rep issued another statement (furnished to PEOPLE):
“Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she’s received from family, friends, and fans. Since Cory‘s passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them… They are supporting each other as they endure this profound loss together. We continue to ask the media to respect the privacy of Lea and Cory‘s family.”
Lea famously encouraged and stood by Cory in April as he went through yet another stint in rehab for substance abuse, which he completed later that month.
The couple had been dating for over a year.
