Lea is breaking her online silence for the first time since her boyfriend and co-star, Cory Monteith, was found dead July 13.
It’s been an emotional few weeks for Lea Michele, the most emotional of her life, in fact. She hasn’t tweeted a single character since Cory Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room July 13, but now, she’s ready to make her feelings public. “Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support,” the Glee star tweeted to her 3.5 million+ Twitter followers July 29. “Cory will forever be in my heart.”
Along with her tweet, Lea attached a heartwarming — and heartbreaking — photo of herself with Cory enjoying the sunset.
Our thoughts remain with Lea at this incredibly difficult time.
