Glee star Cory Monteith was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room on Saturday night. Monteith played the football hero/singing hearthrob Finn Hudson on the popular Fox show. The actor recently turned 31.
Hotel staff became suspicious when the actor missed his check out time. When they wentto check up on him, they found the body. Police confirmed he was dead for several hours when the body was found. Surveillance tapes indicate that Monteith came home late Friday night and was not seen again. The cause of death is unknown, but foul play is not a factor.
An autopsy was scheduled for Monday and the PD is still pending toxicology reports to see if any illegal drugs were the cause of the actors sudden death. Initial reports indicated that a large amount of alcohol and drugs were found at the scene, but after further investigation the police released a statement saying that the hotel room was clean.
According to US Weekly, the Coroner’s office stated, “We might well have an update tomorrow, but final cause of death might be several days or even a couple of weeks after that.” Meanwhile, fans are leaving flowers by the hotel and grieving the tragic loss.
GLEE Executive Producers, 20th Century Fox Television and FOX Broadcasting Company posted the following statement on the “Glee” Facebook page:
“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,”
Monteith battled substance abuse since the young age of 13. His recent stint in rehab gained much support from his girlfriend and co-star, Lea Michelle. A statement released by Lea’s reps ask’s fans to respect her privacy during this devastating time.
Lea and Monteith dated for a year and she stood by him through thick and thin. She stood by him when he went to rehab in April, stating “I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this. I am grateful and proud he made this decision.”
Lea was in L.A after a vacation in Mexico with her girlfriends. Monteith was in Canada visiting his mother. Sources close to the actor stated he was in good spirits just a couple of days before his death.
Filming for season 5 of Glee has not begun and the writers and producers have gone into mandatory meetings to revise the script, which originally was heavily focused on Finns character.

From the eye of the storm I am still with you in spirit!”I am missing my home state of Louisiana and my city, the great city of New Orleans.

- Charlie Hunnam can’t let 50 shades go… Can you blame him? Sons of Anarchy premiered yesterday, but the buzz is all about how Hunnam passed up the role of Christian Grey. Wait didn’t we already hear about this? Now, Hunnam is opening up about how the role gave him a mental breakdown. (Sidenote: I don’t think that’s the effect playing Mr. Grey is suppose to have on a person.)
When Hunnam took the role, he was currently playing three characters. “I was going to finish [filming] Sons at like 11 p.m. Friday night, get on the plane Saturday morning to Vancouver for Fifty, missing the whole first week of rehearsal and start shooting Monday morning,” Hunnam recalled. “And I was going to shoot that film, wrap that on the Wednesday and the following Monday I was going to start shooting Crimson Peak in Toronto. I just had like … frankly, something of a nervous breakdown,” he said.
Two months after being cast as Mr. Grey, Hunnam had to drop out of the massive production. “I just said, ‘I can’t … I can’t …. To fail on such a grand scale — because Fifty’s going to be massive, it’s going to be huge. I really didn’t want to fail on such a grand scale, and I just couldn’t transition from Jax Teller to Christian Grey in 48 hours. It’s painful because I loved the character and I wanted to do it. I’m also a man of my word.”
Well, as sad as it is, I think it’s safe to say Jamie Dornan did the character justice. Am I right?
There you have it, you’re scoop on all things celebrity! Comment and share your thoughts!
Breaking: Naya Rivera Married Ryan Dorsey This Weekend!!
It’s a shocking and unexpected happily ever after for Naya Rivera. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Dorsey! No one saw this coming right?
Naya Rivera said “I do” to actor Ryan Dorsey in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico over the weekend during the most shocking wedding of the year.
Most of us believed that this was just a new romance for Naya, who ended her relationship and engagement to rapper Big Sean three months ago, but we were way off. Actually, until she shared pictures of her and her mystery man riding donkey this weekend, no one was even aware she had a new beau. Before dating speculations could even start, the couple was married. Surprise!
Naya didn’t marry a complete stranger though. She’s actually been friends with Ryan for four years.
“They were friends for a long time,” a source told Us Weekly. “It turned into love!”
Could that be the reason why Big Season called off the engagement just months after popping the question?
The Dorsey’s– cause we can call them that now right– gave their first official statement to US Weekly stating, “We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife. Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for. True love always prevails,” they added.”
And if things weren’t crazy enough, new reports are saying that she married Ryan on the same date she was suppose to marry Big Sean. Yikes! That’s one way to recycle your wedding invitations right?
The date of their wedding is also Ryan’s birthday, so they killed two birds with one stone!
Another source revealed to US Weekly that her friends are just as shocked as we are. “Naya didn’t tell most of her friends that she was marrying Ryan Dorsey, let alone that she was dating him! The whole thing is a complete surprise.”
The cherry on top? Big Sean was nearby the whole time, recording with Kanye West in Cabo San Lucas in Punta Mita, Mexico. Honestly, this whole wedding reeks of her ex-fiance. Part of me feels like it’s a sad attempt at not letting anything— the invitations, the wedding dress, the venue— go to waste. But I might be wrong and maybe this is just purely love.
