Lea Michele on Cory Monteith: He 'will forever be in my heart'
Two weeks after the death of her boyfriend and "Glee" co-star Cory Monteith, Lea Michele has spoken out about the tragedy.
The actress broke her silence on Twitter Monday, talking to fans for the first time since 31-year-old Monteith overdosed on a lethal mix of heroin and alcohol on July 13.
"Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support. Cory will forever be in my heart," Michele tweeted.
The 26-year-old starlet also shared a photo of herself and Monteith smiling and looking very happy, with their arms around each other.
Before yesterday's tweet, Michele's rep had released a statement saying Michele was "grieving alongside [Monteith's] family and making appropriate arrangements with them."
"Glee" is scheduled to return to the airwaves for three episodes on Sept. 26, including a tribute episode to Monteith, before taking a hiatus to regroup.
