Cory Monteith's Mom Recalls the Chilling Moment She Heard About His Death From Lea Michele

Cory Monteith‘s mom, Ann McGregor, is speaking about painfully hearing that her son had passed away in July of 2013.

At the time, Cory had been dating his Glee co-star Lea Michele, and Ann says Lea called her “screaming” to ask her about the tragic news.

“I got a call from Lea and she was screaming on the phone. She was yelling, ‘Is it true, is it true about Cory?’ and I said, ‘What about Cory?’ I had heard nothing. And then police knocked on my front door,” Ann recalled to People. “I went into a state of numbness. I just shut off all emotions, and I was numb.”

“I knew it was real, but there were times when I could lie to myself and say, ‘He’s in L.A., he’ll call me soon.’ I’m still always hanging on edge. When you lose someone who is such a big part of you, you lose all purpose for living,” Ann added.

Cory‘s mom spoke further about his tragic death, including what happened just before he died that may have contributed. If you don’t know, his cause of death was officially listed him as having “mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol.”

Cory Monteith's Mom Speaks About His Tragic Death in Heartbreaking Interview

Cory Monteith‘s mom, Ann McGregor, is opening up about his tragic death in July of 2013.

“He wasn’t ready for the Hollywood world,” Ann told People. “Drugs were his way of checking out.”

Ann says Cory admitted he was using drugs again in December of 2012. Cory went to rehab in April of 2013, but his mom relayed that he had massive dental work done between May and July.

“He had little teeth and they were all capped. He had a lot of medication in his system, which was not good for his body coming out of rehab,” Ann said. Cory‘s cause of death was officially listed him as having “mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol.”

“He didn’t have enough drugs in his system to kill him, but for some reason it did because of his intolerance [built up by periods of intermittent sobriety],” she continued.

Ann added, “I still can’t pick up the pieces. My world totally stopped. And I’m a different person than I was before.” She continued, “Cory was such a loving and genuine person. And the best part of his life was still ahead.”

Our continued thoughts are with Cory‘s loved ones.
