The death of Glee’s number one golden boy, Cory Monteith, took the world by surprise. But unfortunately, that wasn’t the first time he had our jaws dropping.

It was just four months ago (March 30 to be exact) that the 31-year-old made an announcement that no one was prepared for. He “voluntarily admitted himself into a treatment facility for substance addiction.” After spending a month cleaning up, he left with his head held high and his girlfriend, Lea Michele, there by his side.

So when word went viral about Monteith’s death, a question of relapsing had some concerned.

Now, new information has come forth in regards to his very tragic passing.

According to E! News, a large amount of alcohol as well as unidentified substances were found in the actors hotel room.

But even though sources confirmed to E! News that Cory had been drinking and partying the night before, it surely wasn’t enough to kill him. “Yes, he had recently been drinking alcohol, but not to the extent there was any alcohol poisoning kind of impact,” the source made clear.

So that just leaves the substances found. Investigators are not going to make any assumptions “just in case he also had an underlying medical condition,” sources say.

An autopsy is scheduled for today (Monday, July 15). A cause of death will not be announced until everything gets checked out, which probably won’t be until later on in the week.

Lea Michele Left Heartbroken Following Cory Monteith’s Death

I’m seriously gutted as I sit here writing about Cory Monteith’s death, as is the rest of the world!

But after learning about all of this, I’m sure all Glee fans out there stopped to wonder how the 31-year-olds girlfriend is handling the situation.

According to Showbizspy.com,  Lea Michele was completely ‘devasted’ by the passing of the love of her life as you can only imagine.

But exactly how did she find out?

The website is reporting that Michele got word of Cory’s death through a simple phone call, leaving her completely stunned. A source claims, “Lea broke down in tears when she heard the news. Cory was her whole world. They’ve been through a lot together.”

Now the 26-year-old has come forward to PEOPLE Magazine with a few words… well her reps did at least:

 “Lea is deeply grateful for all the love and support she’s received from family, friends, and fans. Since Cory’s passing, Lea has been grieving alongside his family and making appropriate arrangements with them.”

The most heartbreaking thing is the fact that Lea opened up to Marie Claire about her relationship with her co-star and how he makes her feel like ‘the luckiest girl.’

The one thing that is just breaking me into pieces is the fact that Lea professed her love for Cory in an interview with Marie Claire saying:

“I don’t even remember a time when he wasn’t my boyfriend. No one knows me better than Cory. No one knows what it’s been like to go through this more than he does. Feeling like you have that net underneath you allows you to jump higher and go farther. He makes me feel like I can do anything. For the first time in my life, I feel really, really settled and happy. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”

Excuse me while I grab myself a kleenex. I can’t even imagine. I feel like this is just a nightmare the world is trying to wake up from.

RIP Cory Monteith!

There is no way any body is able to define Cory and Tapanga’s love story without including Shawn Hunter.

So now that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel- aka Cory Matthews and Tapanga Lawrence- have officially signed on for the highly-anticipated Boy Meets World spin off Girl Meets World, many fans wonder if Cory’s BFF will be making an appearance on the show as well.

Lucky for us, Rider Strong, better known as Shawn Hunter, has broken the silence on whether or not he will join Ben and Danielle for a little reunion on the television series.

Although he has announced on his website that as of now, he has “no official involvement” with the show, BMW fans should not get too down in the dumps because he is’t ready to give up on Shawn Hunter.

“I am extremely happy for Ben and Danielle to be able to continue the story,” he wrote. “At this point, I have no official involvement in Girl Meets World. There might be a chance to see some of the Boy Meets World cast in a guest spot, and I think it would be nice to find out where our characters have been all these years.”

Boy Meets World was a defining aspect of my life, and I cherish those seven years,” he added. “It was never just a job — on a personal level, many of my best memories and friendships were formed because of it.”

 But for Girl Meets World, Strong is looking forward to seeing the oh so popular ’90’s TV series to “evolve” for today’s generation.
Girl Meets World will be, and I think it should be, its own show,” he wrote. It will be about Cory and Topanga, their daughter, and a new set of characters.”

So do you think the newest Disney Channel series Girl Meets World needs Shawn Hunter to make it better? Comment Below!
