    Just goes to show how powerful addiction is. You can have all the money and support in the world and still succumb to your demons. My thoughts go out to his friends, family, and Lea.

    What the hell happened? He shouldn’t have gone up to Vancouver by him self. I thought he was doing better. Was he still together with Lea Michelle? I am shocked and completely sadden
    Yes, he was still on the show. They release the promo pictures of the new season and everything. They were suppose to start shooting like next week or something

    This is actually sad the way those actors and singers die. So many actors and singers were found dead from overdose in their rooms. This is not good. To be successful, but not happy in the private life,

    He looked so healthy. Not a hot mess like Nick Stahl or Edward Furlong. It only takes one moment, one relapse to die. God bless you Cory. You were my favorite cast member on Glee.
