Lea, who lost her soulmate, Cory, when he died on July 13, is worried she will never find someone who loves her as much as Cory did. Keep reading for more details about how she’s coping with this tragic loss.
Lea Michele was left absolutely heartbroken when Cory Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room on July 13. In fact, Lea is in such a bad state that she says “she is ‘numb,’” a source close to the Glee star told OK! magazine. “It still doesn’t feel real for her and she’s just taking it day by day, minute by minute.”
Cory Monteith Loved Lea Michele So Much, She’s Worried She’ll Never Find Someone New
Lea is clearly going through the stages of grief, and the usually optimistic songstress is still feeling completely hopeless after Cory’s death.
“The nighttime is when it’s really difficult. Everyone’s [made up] their schedules so there’s always someone there with her. It’s been like a horror movie, watching Lea crumble. She’s always been so positive and happy, always smiling. Now her face is totally swollen from crying. She wavers between sitting down and writing a eulogy to sing at his memorial to total denial.”
Most of all, Lea is worried that she will never love — and be loved — again.
“She feels like she may never find someone to love her the way Cory did,” the close friend of the couple says. “She runs scenarios over and over again in her head, trying to figure out, could she have helped him? Could she have saved him?”
Cory Monteith’s Death ‘Doesn’t Feel Real’ For Lea Michele
Lea won’t have much time to heal before she is expected to go on this summer’s Glee Live! tour, where she and her castmates –and possibly a Cory replacement — will travel the country singing hits from the musical dramedy. Lea is contractually obligated to complete two years of touring for the show, which sounds like it would be unbearable for her.
“Lea has no idea how she’s ever going to go back to work, let alone sing on stage without Cory,” another source tells OK!
Poor Lea! We can’t imagine how she must feel. Our thoughts continue to go out to those affected by Cory’s death, especially Lea.
