Cory Monteith has checked into rehab, his rep confirms to People.
The Glee star "has voluntarily admitted himself to a treatment facility for substance addiction. He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery," his rep said in a statement.
The Canadian actor has been open about his past struggles with drug abuse, revealing in a 2011 interview with Parade magazine the extent of his problem.
"I burned a lot of bridges. [I did] anything and everything, as much as possible... I had a serious problem," he confessed to the mag.
So how is girlfriend Lea Michele handling the news?
"I love and support Cory and will stand by him through this. I am grateful and proud he made the decision," she tells People.
We're rooting for you, Mr. Monteith!
Is it winter already?
Lea Michele and her boyfriend/co-star Cory Monteith are getting in the skiing spirit as they went to scoop up some snowboards at Burton in West Hollywood.
The Glee couple have been spending quite some time together on and off the set of their hit show. Wonder if these two will have wedding bells in their future?
Looks like someone has been hitting the gym!
Cory Monteith touched down at LAX airport yesterday, and we almost didn't recognize him due to his dramatic weight loss! Although the Glee actor was never overweight, per-say, he was definitely carrying around some extra pounds when we spotted him last. Looking good Finn!
Rocking jeans, a Radiohead t-shirt, and a cardigan, Lea Michele's boy toy looked better than ever as he waited for a ride after his flight. Maybe he's shedding some of the baby fat for a new role? We know the Canadian cutie is breaking into films, as he just wrapped production on the upcoming crime drama McCanick, so it wouldn't surprise us if he's got another project in the works he needs to be skinny for!
Not that he's leaving the hit Fox series that made him famous just yet!
"I can say that Cory is fully on the show this year and what he will be doing this year is very exciting. His storyline is so cool and different. You couldn't ever guess. Honestly! It's like, amazing. So that's something the fans can really look forward to. And people saw the pictures of us filming together in New York City, so they won't have to wait too long. When [Finn] comes back, he's really back and it is great," Miss Michele told E! Online recently.
Perhaps he has a shirtless scene? At least a girl can dream!
But why does he look so confused? Maybe he's spending more money on gas now that he drives a brand new Range Rover?
Glee star Cory Monteith was spotted gassing up in Hollywood on Wednesday, and he wasn't his usual chipper self when we snapped his photo. Maybe he's missing ladylove Lea Michelle? After all, they've been joined at the hip since they started dating earlier this year!
Lea turned 26 on Tuesday, and she tweeted a photo of a homemade birthday cake and wrote, “Someone very special is already making it the best birthday ever ... So happy:) See you in the morning! #lasthourbeforeiturn26!!!!” Wait, he didn't spend the night?
Rachel and Finn are headed to NYC!
Glee co-stars and real life couple Lea Michele and Cory Monteith hitched a ride to the Fox Upfronts on a golf cart Monday, and we can't get over how cute they look together! We couldn't be happier these two decided to carry their on-screen romance off-screen!
It seems Glee creator Ryan Murphy has a change of plans in mind for some of the students at McKinley High. "Next year will be a renaissance. Two shows within a show," Fox head honcho Kevin Reilly said at the TV network presentation. "We'll follow some of our graduates to the Big Apple as they try to cut it at a college for the performing arts."
Since the sexy brunette and her Canadian hunk play two of the characters set to make the move out East, we wonder if they will take the leap and try living under the same roof?
The cast of Glee came out to celebrate their co-star Cory Monteith's 30th birthday Friday night. The gang all headed to the "after-party" after first gathering for the show's wrap party in Beverly Hills.
Pal Lily Collins turned out as well and everyone was in for a little birthday surprise when the cake was brought out. Click through to see the NSFW creation ...
Dying for some Glee spoilers? Luckily, star Lea Michele is spilling the beans about season three.
In an interview with TVaddict.com, the actress revealed that her character, Rachel Berry, would have a lot more screen time with boyfriend Finn (played by Cory Monteith). And while Rachel's already a diva, it seems that we'll see her fighting for even more stage time in season three. But what about those pesky graduation and spin-off rumors? Lea's taking it all in stride, saying:
"You know what's so funny is that I feel like so many people are looking so far ahead, and honestly for me, I know what is coming up for Rachel this season, and I'm so excited for that, so i try not to get too far ahead of myself, and I'm just focused on what I have to do right now."
If you weren't already excited for season three thanks to Lea's dish, check out the first official promo above. There are no slushies, but at least there's some dodgeballs!
Game on, Glee!
You can't say that the Glee boys aren't in on the joke.
Mark Sailing decided to Tweet about all the fun he and his co-stars are having on their summer break before season three of the hit Fox show starts filming again. "The Glee bros and I wanted to keep up our chops up over the hiatus so we formed a tribute band," the actor also known as Puck wrote.
Is it just us, or do Mark and fellow Gleek Cory Monteith look kind of awesome in the wacky, over-the-top get-ups?
Yes, we know that Mark just Photoshopped the cast's heads onto the Village People, but still ... they really would make a great '70s cover band!
Sing it with us, will you? "YMCA!"
