June after Cory’s April stint in rehab for stubstance addiction. The actor looked content and happy at the charity bash.
‘She [Lea Michele] is absolutely hysterical and completely inconsolable,’ an insider tells HollywoodLife.com. ‘She is devastated beyond belief.’
Cory and Lea were lovers on and off screen, with Lea playing Finn Hudson’s on-off girlfriend Rachel Berry in Glee.
It’s fantastic – working together on the show that is so dear to both of us…’ Cory told You Magazine recently.
I wouldn’t change a thing. Lea is obviously close to me, so it’s hard for us [when there’s relationship angst between Finn and Rachel] to play miserable all the time.’
