I also think Lea has been trying to get with Cory for a while – in previous interviews, she’s said that they hadn’t hooked up… Now, I have to admit, although I loathe Glee and I’m not a big Lea fan, I kind of like this match-up.

Cory has dated girls like Taylor Swift in the past, and hey, dude is almost 30 years old.

Monteith had been dating Michele for more than a year.

Michele posted vacation pictures from a girls' trip to Cabo San Lucas on Twitter over the July Fourth holiday. Adam Shankman, a frequent Glee director, reacted the the news early Sunday morning:"Goodbye my amazing and beautiful friend," Shankman wrote on Twitter. It was simply "no." Cory Monteith stole hearts around the world playing 'Glee' lead hunk Finn Hudson.

Monteith told Parade magazine in 2011 that he was "out of control" as a teen.

He revealed that at age 13, he drank, smoked pot and skipped school in Victoria, British Columbia, after his parents divorced. He was "doing anything and everything, as much as possible." At 19, he entered rehab for the first time.

Monteith even joined in on the Sharknado social media phenomenon July 12, asking his 1.5 million followers what exactly "a Sharknado" was.
