“At the end of the day, this industry is really tough, and the only way to get through is to create a solid unit, and that’s really what we’ve been since day one,” Lea said on the Fempire podcast (via ET). “We’ve stood by each other through anything that was thrown our way. [Matt] is a such a great man that he would never really let anything like that ever crack our lovely little core that we’ve created.”
Lea added, “He is very respectful towards the person that I was with, and that, again, is something I love so much about him. I really know that Cory would love him too.”
Cory tragically passed away from an overdose back in July 2013.
