    My sincere condolences. My heart goes out to Lea and Cory’s family. Addiction is a terrible thing and despite the circumstances of Cory’s death, they all loved him.


    Hang in there darling. Don’t forget the time when we met in Roma, and you were just an Al-Italia flight attendant, who was best friends with Donatella Greco. And your husband was dying…

    And now Lea is the long-suffering, grieving girlfriend, basking in the spotlight of sympathy and free publicity.

    Pretty much what you said. But I’m wondering what and who triggered Cory to use drug again and why did he die in a place where he is all alone. Is he trying to get a break from somebody? He just completed his rehabilitation in a drug facility I never heard anyone one who goes back taking Heroine IMMEDIATELY after he was just release. SOMEBODY PUSHED HIM.

    @sayer @freya you are complete insensitive disgusting human beings. You should be ashamed of yourself. He died. The love of her life is dead because he’s battled an addiction since he was really young. Addiction isn’t easy ever. And it most certainly isn’t easy for his family.

    this whole thing is just so sad, obviously Lea is hurting I mean she was his girlfriend.. that being said… I also believe that even though you never recover from that, you just kind of live with that your entire life, she WILL milk every moment of their relationship for EVER to everybody! and she’ll become this fragile person that nobody wants to upset for the rest of her life and she will love every second of it, especially because people will notice her more than ever!

    @Alexandra: Took the words right out of my mouth. Terrible circumstance, no doubt she is in mourning but at the same time it’s the most PR she will ever get. RIP Cory.

  • Wow

    How long before she does an interview with Oprah? “I tried to save my heroin addict boyfriend!”

  • cT

    He spent one month in rehab….this shocks anyone? Idiots.

  • Amber

    People who want privacy don’t release two public statements within a week of their boyfriend’s death.

  • B.

    Disgusting comments…. @sayer @Freya @Alexandra @b @wow @ct @amber
    Go and spread your trash somewhere else!

    I’m not a huge Lea fan, I mean her voice is incredible even I have to admit that but saying that she’s enjoying the attention of her boyfriends death is just cruel! She’s a human being, she’s not this evil, manipulative person a lot of people think she is. She has every right to grieve.

  • Danae

    @B: Do you think she prefers to have her world collapsing at the prime time of her life and the “best PR” as you called it, instead of being an average, though recognisable, actrees and having the love of her live near her?

    I’m not a huge fan of Lea, but nobody should go through the death of the loved one at such an early age.

  • RIP CORY.shut up lea

    I do not understand why this famewhore and her people won’t quit releasing statements about CORY. Enough. The guy is dead and she is using it to gain sympathy and more fame. I don’t even believe their relationship was genuine.she is sick.and people stop talking about her. I feel sorry for Cory’s family,they lost him and he will never be replaced. Lea however will move on soon stop giving her sympathy because she will start to use it even more blatantly.

  • Bianca

    What I dont understand is why Just Jared accepts these terrible comments about Lea. Something terrible happened to her boyfriend and its normal in these situations to release a statement. But to call her a famewhore..Please, for Lea’s sake and for the millions of cory fans delete these comments. Its a disgrace.

  • Danae

    @RIP CORY.shut up lea: Lea was closer to Cory than some of his family members…

  • Taylor

    @RIP CORY.shut up lea: Y’all need to understand that when it says their “rep says” it means that the press and magazines and every one are probably blowing up her managements phones and to appease the public they release this sort of statement. Lea is saying “leave me alone” once and her PR is relaying the message to a million different media outlets a million different times. It’s not Lea directly. Don’t be so disrespectful.

    There’s a theory going around (that makes sense actually) that there really wasn’t any reports of him having any issues until recently. This could have been due to the fact that his screen time for Glee (Season 4) was reduced. This could have left him to occupy his time with temptation. Then all of a sudden we get reports of him going to rehab etc. And coming off of that, you truly have to watch the person because it’s one of the difficult times. Your body can’t handle what it use to. He unfortunately thought he could handle the same dose and not to mention the fact he mixed it with alcohol. Not a good combo. Shame.
