“Not that I had any doubt before, but you guys are most certainly the greatest fans in the world and I wanted to dedicate this award to Cory,” she added, choking back tears.

“For all of you out there who loved and admired Cory as much as I did, I promise that with your love we’re going to get through this together. He was very special to me and also to the world,” Lea continued. “We were very lucky to witness his incredible talent, his handsome smile, and his beautiful beautiful heart. So whether you knew him personally or just as Finn Hudson, Cory reached out and he became a part of all of our hearts and that’s where he will stay forever. So thank you guys so much. Thank you.”

Sad news has once again hit Hollywood.

The 31-year-old actor was staying at the Fairmont Pacific Hotel which he had been schedule to stay at from July 6 to July 13. Upon missing his check out time, someone was sent to check up on him which led to the discovery of his lifeless body, alone in his room on the 21st floor.

The police do have video of the actor returning to the hotel room earlier that morning by himself. Following the discovering, his family was quickly notified, before a press conference was held. Out of respect for the family, the authorities wanted to confirm his passing so no one would become intrusive and invade the family in their time of grieving.

“We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate. We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss,” a rep for Monteith said in a statement.

Also following suit, a statement from Glee executive producers, 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Broadcasting Company has also been released, “We are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Cory was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person. He was a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.”

Earlier this year, Monteith checked into a drug addiction treatment facility in April for substance abuse which he had been fighting against since the age of 13. He had been very open about his substance abuse and even admitted to starting doing drugs at the age of 13 and going into rehab for the first time at the age of 19.

According to a press release given by his publicist to People Magazine, he has “voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction. He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery.”
