Lea Michele Breaks Her Twitter Silence Following Cory Monteith’s Death

The Glee actress has returned to the social networking site to thank fans for their support and share an intimate new picture of her late boyfriend

Lea Michele has returned to Twitter following weeks of silence following the tragic death of her boyfriend and Glee co-star Cory Monteith.

The actress took to her news feed last night to post the message: ‘Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love and support. Cory will forever be in my heart.’

Lea also shared an exclusive picture from her private album, showing the happy couple looking cosy and loved-up on a remote beach. The post has been retweeted more than 238,000 times and favourited over 229,000 times.

Lea has kept a low profile after discovering that Cory was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room last month. Following an autopsy that revealed the star died from a heroin and drugs overdose, Lea attended a private cremation and memorial service with his close family just days after his passing.

But last week, she invited Cory‘s Glee castmates to a private service at the Los Angeles studio where the series is filmed, so the actors could pay their own respects to their late friend.

A statement released by 20th Century FOX read: ‘Today, Ryan Murphy and Lea Michele gathered the cast, crew and producers of Glee, along with colleagues from the network and studio, to share memories and music in an emotional celebration of the life of Cory Monteith.’

Series five will return a week later than planned in September. The third episode will be a tribute to Cory, then the show will take a break while producer Ryan Murphy and the cast decide the fate of the show.

It’s good to have you back, Lea.
