‘Glee’ star Lea Michele posted a touching message on her Twitter account to her former boyfriend and co-star, Cory Monteith, who died of a drug overdose in July 2013. Lea put up the post as a tribute to Cory whose birthday would have been today, May 11.
In remembrance of Cory Monteith’s birthday on May 11, Lea Michele, 27, posted a touching tribute picture on her Twitter account. Cory would have been 32-years-old today had he not tragically died from a drug overdose in July of 2013.

The message was simple and powerful at the same time. The caption under the Twitter post read: “The biggest heart and most beautiful smile.. In all of our hearts.. We love you so.. Happy Birthday.”
The picture is a heartwarming one showing the two of them simply laughing with each other. It’s also slightly washed out in black and white.
Cory looks like he’s leaning over to say something to Lea with a loving smile on his face and she looks like she’s cracking up! You can see her with her hand over her mouth and her eyes closed like she is trying to hold the laugh in but can’t.
Lea Posts A Loving Birthday Message To Cory On Twitter
Lea was devastated when Cory died while in his home country of Canada, but she has managed to keep herself going, and keep Cory’s memory alive in the process.
On the day of the 100th episode of Glee Lea posted a picture of her and Cory on her Instagram account. The pic was captioned: “Glee billboard 2009” and showed her and Cory under a huge billboard advertising the show!
Sadly, Cory had a long history with drug abuse.
In 2011, during an interview with Parade Magazine, he discussed his past issues with substance abuse. In March 2013, he again sought out treatment for addiction.
Unfortunately, the treatment was not enough and Cory relapsed back into his old habits. On July 13, he died of a toxic combination of heroin and alcohol in a Vancouver hotel room.
